Dolphinwatch

Dolphinwatch

Dolphin Watching and Wildlife Eco-Adventure offers you the wonderful opportunity to watch and learn about Ireland’s resident group of bottlenose dolphins – on a guided boat trip into the Mouth of the Shannon. With approximately 200 individuals in this group, the dolphin encounter rate with Dolphinwatch is one of the best in the world.

Every trip is different in this dynamic environment! You might meet a grey seal emerging from a cave, spot a herd of wild goats on a hillside, learn about the many species of nesting sea birds, and delight in the stunning cliffs and caves of the Loop Head Peninsula and the coast of North Kerry.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
