During this surf camp, you will be staying in Kenmare Bay. Anyone who has been camping before will tell you about the sense of exhilaration and refreshment you get after a few days in the wilderness. The tents and sleeping bags provided by Wild SUP Tours are perfect for a good night's sleep al fresco.

On night one, you will set up camp near Paknasilla.

The surrounding area of Rossmore Island will be your home on night two.

Have a well-earned rest along the Greenane Islands in Templenoe on night three.


Explore along the coast and get lost in the bays, inlets and rivers while meandering your way to your destination. Camping in beautiful surroundings and listen to the gentle lapping of the waves on the seashore as you fall asleep. Eat amazing local food that has been freshly made in front of a camp fire. That is the adventure you will find while paddling through the waters of Kenmare Bay with wild SUP Tours;.

Day 1: Arrive in Sneem (Thursday)

You will arrive at Kerry Airport (KIR) in the early evening and you will be transferred by a minibus to Sneem. This is our first base camp for the night.

On your way, you will pass through Killarney National Park and the beautiful Molls Gap before crossing the mountains that will reveal your first look at the sea. When you arrive, the camp will be ready and a delicious dinner will be simmering over the fire. Get to know the group around the campfire before getting a good night’s rest ahead of the next day's paddle.

Day 2: Explore the coast (Friday)

You will wake up to a tasty breakfast before packing up camp and launching your SUP boards. You will begin by paddling the islets surrounding Parknasilla Resort and Spa, a spectacular converted castle, where you are highly likely to see a colony seals.

You will stop for a picnic lunch and snacks as you paddle along the coastline throughout the day, eventually settling on a secluded island where you will set up camp. Warmed by the fire, rest your arms, and enjoy dinner whilst sharing stories among the group.

Day 3: Paddle Blackwater River (Saturday)

Listen to the morning call of the birds while you enjoy breakfast before heading out and continue your journey along the Ring of Kerry. Stopping for snacks and refreshments along the way, you will paddle a short way up the Blackwater River. The Special Area of Conservation is home to some rare freshwater pearl mussels and sits under the watchful gaze of the towering MacGillycuddy Reeks.

Inevitably, you will find a quaint spot for lunch before continuing the along the coast until you find the perfect place to set up camp. You will enjoy dinner beneath the star-lit sky and you can listen to the calls of nature that make wild camping the marvel it is.

Day 4: The final stretch (Sunday)

You will enjoy your final morning at camp and have breakfast by the water. On day four, you will paddle the final stretch to Kenmare. Along the way, you will pass Dromore Castle and the fairytale-like An Culu Castle. You will paddle the coast all morning before reaching Kenmare. There, you will stop for a farewell lunch with the group and your guides before it is time to depart for the airport.
