What To Expect

Come watch the sun slowly setting while you explore the stunning coastal inlets and small islands of Great Man’s Bay, kayaking to an off-shore island with an experienced local guide. The scenic Maamturks and 12 Bens mountain ranges of Connemara will be your dusk backdrop on this coastal adventure. Witness a variety of sea life that can include seals and a range of shellfish like limpids, clams, mussels and scallops.
More experienced kayakers have the option to continue as the sun dips in the west, to kayak across Great Man’s bay with their guide to the ruins of an old church and the priest’s residence, which during the old days the priest would make the journey by boat to say mass and then continue on horseback to Lettermullen village, 5 miles away to say mass there, before returning home.
During late spring and into the summer this picturesque coastline is covered with wild flowers, the yellow Gorse is a beautiful sight with its bright yellow flowers and fragrant dusk coconut smell.
