Your Local Host:
Colin and Cathy
Moving to Ireland in 2009, we left the frenetic buzz of big city life behind us, hoping to create a different lifestyle in the countryside. Colin, who is an Irishman, already had the love of the west of Ireland imprinted in his heart, having spent all his childhood summers fishing the many rivers and loughs for its famous wild salmon and trout.
In search of our ‘place’ in this crazy world, we chose the wilds of Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way to settle and see if it would measure up to our high expectations…and boy does it deliver on that, and much, much more!
The experience takes place in the breathtaking Mannin Bay, on the west coast of Ireland, north-west of Galway city.
It’s a beautiful area of crystal clear waters and magical panoramic views framed by distant mountains, and the bay is fairly well protected from large swells of the Atlantic which makes it perfect for watersports.
Exact directions and meeting points will be specified on your booking voucher.
All you need to bring is your swimming gear, a towel, a pair of trainers you don’t mind getting wet. It’s a good idea to bring warm clothes to put on after the tour as when the sun goes down it can get quite chilly. A hot drink for afterwards can be a great idea also. It is strongly advised that all persons on or close to water wear a life jacket.
