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
“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
