Video: Is kayaking around Dalkey Ireland’s Best Day Out?

Several readers have told us that a kayak trip to Dalkey Island is Ireland’s Best Day Out. So we packed a camera and went to investigate

Several readers told us that kayaking around Dalkey is Ireland's Best Day out so we joined Jenny Kilbride to find out.

 

“An uplifting day out that is good for the soul,” writes Gail O’Keeffe of her first kayaking trip in Ireland. “I had never paddled before; just booked it and headed out one Saturday morning on a whim.”

The Irish Times is running a competition to identify Ireland’s best visitor attractions, and we’ve asked our readers to help, by telling us about great ways to spend a day in Ireland. Nominations close on Saturday, May 16th.

“Nothing beats joining Jenny Kilbride and her team for a tour around Dalkey from Bulloch Harbour,” wrote O’Keeffe, one of several readers who recommended the tours run by Kayaking.ie. “Seeing the land and sea from an utterly different perspective; saying hello to the seals who popped up to watch us; waving at yachts passing nearby.”

A memorable day out can take many forms: an adrenalin-pumping outdoor activity, a visit to a museum that brings its subject to life, a ramble through a little-known corner of Ireland – or a combination of the lot. Nominate your favourite at www.irishtimes.com/bestdayout
