Donegal offers some fantastic coastline to explore, as well as sea caves, islands and wildlife, most of which can be experienced during the summer months. It offers kayakers the true pleasure of enjoying the outdoors. Kayaking around the Inishowen peninsula is an exhilarating experience that individuals will want to do over and over again. For those in search of a relaxing paddle, Sligo’s hidden lakes are perfect. It is also picture perfect for a scenic trip along its rugged coastline. The more adventurous should try the local rivers, whilst adrenaline seekers can try their hand at the increasingly popular activity of surf kayaking. The coastal village of Easkey offers excellent sea kayaking opportunities as well as other water sports.
