The lakeside village of Mountshannon is the launching point for our Holy Island kayak tour. Scattered close to the shore are a string of islands the largest being Holy Island. Our expert guides will lead you through the narrow channels and rocky shoals engaging with the natural environment in a way which can only be achieved by kayak. The local fauna includes Caimin and Saoirse a pair of White Tailed Sea Eagles. The eagles nest only short distance from our start point and can be often seen patrolling the skies or wrestling Pike for the lake as they aim to secure dinner for their chicks.

It is very unlikely that you will end up in the water as our kayaks are very stable and designed to keep you safe and dry. This is an adventure sport though and the chance although small does still exist, therefore please bring spare shoes and clothes in case you take an unexpected dip! We also recommend you do not carry any valuables such as phones which could be damaged if wet, if you choose to carry them, you do so at your own risk. We will provide waterproof storage for car keys.
