We were a bunch of 5 ladies, average age 65, and we had the most fun ever with Ciara. She is a super instructor and we had a ball from start to finish. None of us had any experience but that wasn't an issue, her instructions were clear and we kayaked like pros. Almost.

The Inishnee island loop walk takes you round the middle Inishnee island on a 4.5km track. It’s pretty easy going all the way round. You get to see the views across sea on all sides of the island, plus the little fishing harbour.

Worth a walk if you’re in the area.

Stayed here just by O’Dowds in an apartment overlooking the bay and harbours. Looking at the photos it appears if you come here in summer it’s chaos, and there was evidence this is likely the case. We visited in November. It wasn’t basking in sunshine but it certainly wasn’t horrendous. It was showery, never dry for an entire day, but you could walk regularly around this and we did see some sun. Main benefit in going during this time was the driving, empty roads and great fun driving a sports car , a proper one not a pseudo sports SUV, at sensible but fun speeds.

My advice, go in off season.

Roundstone is a lovely village with stunning beaches and scenery right around the bay. Dogs Bay beach is the nicest but be warned on a nice day the area can get very crowded and driving/getting around can be a slow and frustrating experience in the traffic on such skinny roads. No surprise thigh as the bay is just gorgeous. Go early.

We booked both Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) and Kayaking with Shane for my extended family and myself. Absolutely excellent. His colleague Ciara took us Kayaking, fantastic with everyone. They made both activities very relaxing and fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shane and his company.

If you are lucky with the weather, this is such a scenic trip! Allow yourself a couple of hours to explore this beautiful bay. Very picturesque spots for pictures!

I have been going to Roundstone since my children were little. The natives are friendly, the views (including The Twelve Pens and Dog's Bay) are incredible. The food is excellent, especially O'Dowds and I am sure other restaurants in the village.
Always worth a visit too is the Ceardlann or Craft Centre.
Enjoy, though I shouldn't be sharing my secrets

Roundstone is said to be the place where Bruce Ismay, chairman of the White Star Line went on retreat after the unfortunate experience of his ship the Titanic.
Today it is a busier place with fish restaurants, pubs and a neat little harbour.
it is a loveley place to spend a few hours in the summer sunshine 'Sittin' on the dock of the bay, watching the ships roll in .......'

We drove to Inishnee, which is just one kilometer outside of Roundstone. There’s parking just over the first bridge. The loop walk is a wonderful amenity for the area. At just over 6k if you stick to the dedicated route it’s a perfect way to experience the area and marvel at the scenery. There’s amazing views back to the village of Roundstone across the bay and the Twelve Bens tower to the North. The entire walk is suitable for families, dogs and non experienced walkers. For those who’d like a bigger hike you can cut off and extend the walk by heading to the furthest point of the Island.
It’s well worth a visit!
