Ever wondered what it’s like to travel 15 minutes outside a city, Stand Up Paddleboard to an Island and back, then  eat a delicious meal and drink a few beers as the sun goes down. 

No?… Well we have, and it’s fantastic.

This is the perfect after work escape, a fantastic adventure in Dublin’s back garden.

Schedule

6.30pm - Meet Coliemore Harbour, Dalkey

6.45pm - Paddle around Island

8.00pm - BBQ at Coliemore Harbour

THE PLAN

The plan is to meet up at Colimore Harbour which lies on the mainland just half a kilometer from Dalkey Island. We’ll get into wetsuits and spend about an hour paddling out from the Harbour and around the island to take in the sights.

We’ll paddle around the island, spend half an hour or so on the island itself having an explore – then we’ll paddle back to the mainland for a beer and some delicious BBQ. 

We’ll have a support boat with us the whole way along with friendly, professional guides.

It’s a fine way to finish a workday.

THE DETAILS

  • Meet at Coliemore Harbour in Dalkey at 6.30pm – plenty of time to make it out from work on the Dart or by car
  • There’ll be Stand Up Paddleboards and wetsuits for everyone and a boat to keep an eye on any wayward paddlers
  • We’ll spend an hour getting over, half an hour on the island and another half hour paddling back.
  • When we get back we’ll have some BBQ and a beer 
  • We aim to be back well before dark
  • Anybody who feels they can’t make it back will be ferried back in the boat
    •             All in for a cool €50 – no surprises, we’re sound   

WHAT TO BRING

  • A towel
  • A wetsuit if you want to use your own, otherwise we’ll provide one
  • Swimsuit or trunks for under the wetsuit
  • Some warm cloths and a bag to put them in
  • Your sense of adventure
