Paddle in a stunning bay
Come kayaking with us in beautiful Mannin Bay, Connemara. We run guided sunset kayak tours on a daily basis from the back of the Connemara Sands Hotel.

Sunset Kayaking fAQ
There is no better way to spend an evening and bask in the sunset’s beautiful colours than enjoying it from a kayak on the sea.
Because every sunset and sky is different from the previous, you’ll enjoy a sunset experience like nobody else that came before you. Either with a group of likeminded adventurers or with your own group of friends.
Sunset kayaking in Connemara with Real Adventures is an experience not to be missed when coming to this area. Add to this a beautiful coastal journey and you have a perfect way to enjoy an evening in Irelands west.
We will provide you with all the necessary equipment including user friendly sit on top kayaks, paddles, wetsuits and buoyancy aids.
All you need to bring are your swimming togs, a towel, a pair of trainers you don’t mind getting wet. If you don’t have a pair of wet shoes we have some you can borrow.
It’s a good idea to bring warm clothes for after the tour because when the sun goes down sometimes it can get a bit chilly.
The time varies depending on the time of year, they usually start between 6.30pm and 8pm.
