Went to Killary with some friends while on holiday in beautiful Connemara and had an amazing time. Went up on the high ropes course and it was a blast, the views around and the surroundings were also stunning. Instructor was really experienced and looked after us all. Want to go back and do the Turf Warrior as well!

My partner and I were guided by Bernard who did a great job of introducing us to sea kayaking, teaching us the basics and explaining all about the fjord. We had a great time! We were lucky enough to have Bernard to ourselves with no others on our tour although there were others from the centre out of the water.... More
