Loads of options are surely better. Would highly recommend the North Mayo coast and Donegal, both world class :-)

So it seems! I was fairly sorted until you came along tho - either SW (Cork / Roaring Water / my old family area of Dunmanus & Bantry) or some more Hebrides trips. And now I have to consider Mayo and Donegal and indeed possibly Galway area. Grrr.

Hi Chris,
And thank you! I thoroughly enjoyed the clips. We were in Conemmara over Easter. Our third trip to the area and enjoyed what is probably the best sea kayaking we have done. Amazing Islands, monstrous swells and stunning scenery ! Combine that with lovely people and a pint inspired by the Gods and, well....counting down the days!

Richard
