Leaving the small harbour of Moneygold we will paddle over to Connors Island, then onwards to Dernish Island. Known for its ancient farming settlement and stunning views of Benbulben, we will take a stroll along the shoreline, spotting the amazing birdlife that frequents the area. Have a rest and a cup of tea/coffee overlooking Streedagh beach, the spectacular setting for productions such as 'Normal People' and 'Calvary' before drifting back to Moneygold with the tide.
