About this event

A guided kayaking tour with a stop on Dalkey Island. Afterwards we'll head into the scenic village of Dalkey. Next, we'll take a stroll through the woods at Killiney Hill - with its wonderful panorama of mountain, island, sea and city. Then, if you fancy it, we'll step down to the cliffs and take a dip in the sea at the famous Vico Baths.
