Ireland is one of the best places in Europe to meet whales and dolphins! This incredible experience, known as Dolphin Watch Carrigaholt, can be done in Carrigaholt in County Clare, and will enchant your children, as well as adults!
Climb aboard the Draíocht, a sturdy, spacious, safe and comfortable boat, and discover the dolphins of Ireland!
A trip of less than two hours is all it takes to discover one of Ireland’s largest known areas of resident dolphin population. Hidden under the water, there are more than a hundred of them living there, and they don’t hesitate to reveal themselves when a boat passes by.
It must be said that the dolphin is rather playful, and likes to show its pranks and acrobatics to anyone who wants to see it. On the program, jumps, games in the waves and approach very close to the boat! Something to amaze young and old, and better discover the beauty of these marine animals!
The visit of the “Dolphin Watch Carrigaholt” will take you to the mouth of the river Shannon, and will offer you an impressive show on the Irish coastline, with its vertiginous cliffs, its incredible colonies of birds, nested here and there, as well as its seals, comfortably installed in wild areas as you wish.
An exceptional visit, ranked among the top 10 Irish tourist attractions for marine wildlife. Don’t forget to bring a big sweater and oilskin: it can be cold at sea and the weather can be changeable!
