Was ihr unternehmen werdet

We kayak along the coastline from Killiney beach towards the Sorrento Terrace. From there we cross Dalkey Sound, a strip of water between Dalkey and the Island. We usually see plenty of cormerants, sea gulls and other sea birds on the island, but probably the most famous wild life we will see is a herd of wild goats that have lived on the island for over 100 years. These along with plenty of rabbits and hopefully some seals offer opportunities for some unusual photos. Dalkey Island has an incredibly chequered history for a place that is so small. The church on the island is dedicated to Saint Begnet, it dates back to the eleventh century. The fireplace in it is from the time of the fort on the island and Martello tower. The original windows in the church are arranged in a very strange way and it’s thought that it relates to the keeping of a solar calendar. Behind the church is a curious stone, marked with a cross. It’s thought that this stone may have been a very ancient pagan stone that has been ‘Christianized’. It has evidence of having a carved circle on it but sadly it is now weathered so much that it is difficult to make out the shapes on it.

Very unorganized, host didn’t communicate reasons or that he would be an hour late. After taking the group onto the ocean, Alex (host) didn’t come with us. The two co hosts were very good. Friendly, though could have been more engaging. The host also moved group member items around in van and didn’t help find them again. All was accounted for but very unorganized.

We had a great time kayaking from Killiney Beach to Dalkey Island. Dalkey Island is so beautiful and well worth a visit. This was my first time kayaking, and it was a fantastic experience. We had a great laugh, it was a very enjoyable day altogether!!

The trip was very beautiful and the host was a good and plesant kayaking instructor. Hawover he doesnt know much about the history of the place. The changing facilities are public toilets.

If you are ever in Ireland you absolutely need to experience this trip! I got to meet a bunch of amazing people and Alex is an incredible host! We got to see wild goats and seals I absolutely loved this kayaking adventure and afterwards we got to swim in the little port. Even though it was a windy overcast day it honestly added evens more so to the experience and the hosts made sure that everyone was able to learn how to kayak properly beforehand so even if this is your first time kayaking they will make sure you leave much more confident in your ability to kayak! If I am able to make it back to Ireland I would absolutely live to do this again. Truly once in a lifetime experience!

We had a great kayaking trip with Alex, and we were very lucky with great weather. We went to Dalkey Island, had a stopover to enjoy the view, and went back to Killiney. On the Airbnb page it says that Snacks and Drinks are provided, but this wasn't the case. This is not a problem at all since you'll be kayaking the entire 3 hours, but make sure to bring some water with you for when you get thirsty.

As and outdoor activity this is dependent on weather conditions and Alex was clearly mindful of this. We had a lovely trip on a calm day arriving at Dalkey island where we were greeted by seals. After a break and stroll on the island the return seemed easier! Very enjoyable and memorable day.
