Kayak Across Ireland's Famous Lakes Of Killarney, Exploring Hidden Inlets & Islands. Spend a relaxing morning or afternoon exploring the deep sparkling Lakes of Killarney by kayak, with an expert guide. Beginning at 15th century Ross Castle, paddle into Lough Lein, discovering wooded islands, limestone caves and local history. With an experienced qualified guide learn the skills to master your kayak and keep a look out for white tailed sea eagles as they soar above Killarney National Park. Land at the ancient ruins of Innisfallen Abbey; once a leper colony, now home only to native red deer. Or Watch The Sun Set In The West Over Killarney National Park & Dingle On This Magical Kayak Trip. Kayak silently past rustling islands and sleepy swans. From your kayak see the mystical 6th century abbey ruins on Innisfallen Island and hopefully glimpse some of Ireland's last native red deer. Return by kayak to Ross Castle in twilight or moonlight. No Previous Kayaking Experience Is Needed.
