This summer, see the Wild Atlantic Way from another perspective entirely, with the Paddle the Wild Atlantic Way experience at Knockranny House Hotel. Enjoy the excitement of a SUP session out on the water at Old Head beach in Westport with paddleboard experts, Summer SUP School.
Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is one of the world’s fastest growing and most enjoyable sports, and an amazing way to explore the Irish coastline while also getting fit. A cross between surfing and kayaking, stand up paddle boarding tests your balance as you stand up straight on a large surf board and use your paddle, dipping into the water to propel yourself ahead, generate speed, change direction, or just gently mosey along and enjoy the ride, and the scenery.
Summer SUP School is based on the Wild Atlantic Way, open between the months of May to September from sunrise to sunset, with only the best quality equipment and instructors. Muirtí Ó Cearnaigh, the owner of Summer SUP, has been working in adventure activities and water sports for over 18 years and has a multitude of qualifications, as well as owning Atlantic Coast Lifeguards – Ireland’s top lifeguard training school – so you’ll be in the best possible hands.
After a fun session to learn the basic skills to get you up on the board, out on the water and paddling, Knockranny House Hotel is a cosy and luxurious setting to return to after a day’s adventures.
