FAQs Connemara Coastal Kayaking

Come kayaking with us in beautiful Mannin Bay, Connemara. We run guided kayak tours on a daily basis from the back of the Connemara Sands Hotel. Tours last 2.5 hours and are suitable for complete beginners. We provide all of the gear and equipment so all you need to worry about is having fun and saying hello to the friendly seals.

We will provide you with all the necessary equipment including sit on top kayaks, paddles, wetsuits, buoyancy aids and snorkeling gear. All you need to bring are your swimming togs, a towel, a pair of trainers you don’t mind getting wet. It’s a good idea to bring warm clothes to put on after the tour as when the sun goes down it can get quite chilly.

Our kayak tours take place on the stunning Mannin bay.  We use the back of the Connemara Sands hotel as our start point.

We are based at the back of the Connemara Sands Hotel.  Park in the carpark of the hotel and then head around the back towards the water-site.

If you cancel 5 days before your activity we can offer you a full refund or reschedule your booking. If you cancel 2 – 5 days in advance we can offer you 50% refund or book you onto another activity as availability allows. If you cancel less than 48 hours in advance we cannot guarantee that we can reschedule the activity for you and we will not refund your money. A no show, late arrival or request to reschedule within 48 hours is the same as cancelling less than 48 hours in advance and the same rules apply.
