Kayaking in Kerry
Cappanalea OETC is surrounded by some of the best white-water and flat-water paddling in all of Ireland. With the beautiful lakes of Killarney nearby and the exciting Glencar rivers almost outside our back door, Kayaking in Kerry has a challenge for everyone. The qualified instructors are renowned paddlers and some are members of the National Training and Assessment panels for Kayaking in Ireland.
Leave the mainland behind and paddle west in the direction of islands rich in history and culture, visiting locations steeped in archaeology and marine wildlife. Where the ancient monks settled on the Skellig Rock, to old monastic ruins on Church Island, drift over to St Finians Bay, or head to the Blasket islands soaked in history, tradition, wildlife and stories; the Atlantic is your oyster!
Indulge yourself in the best Gourmet food on your travels but most importantly stop, breathe the salt air and relax, this is an opportunity for you to engage with the Wild Atlantic Way in Kerry.
Cappanalea OETC runs daily tours on the Lakes of Killarney during July and August or by appointment outside of these months.
The tour can include the famous Monastic Island of Inisfallen where deer and the ancient monastic ruins are visited; the limestone outcrops and caves offer opportunities to kayak through amazing natural rock formations; or you can kayak over to the mountain shore where the sea eagles may be seen hovering overhead.
