Sunset Touring Kayak

An unforgettable experience

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.

Truly awesome
We won this kayaking trip on a face book competition with Celtic Impressions and it was truly awesome. We met Johno at 2.30 and were not back till after 5. We had the most fabulous, peaceful enthralling experience and I would highly recommend it. We got to see seals and even 4 baby Dolphins, Johno knew the name of every bird we saw and was a mine of information. If your looking for an out of this world experience and to totally switch off from your troubles this is definitely something you should do.
