I recently moved back to Ireland (Waterford) from the UK, where I picked up the kayaking bug. Did canoeing, white water and even some SUP stuff, considered myself pretty good back in the pre-toddler days.

Looking to resume this considering the bounty of options on my doorstep, and it seems pretty active on this forum.

While I am waterford based, we are used to driving 3+ hours to a put in, and my partners family are from west clare.

Is there any other forums or clubs like this that cater to the south east?

Take a look at ISKA.IE Look also to ESCKC.EU. Phoenix Club in Cork is possibly your nearest club/group. Phoenix while primarily a white water club, there is a good mix of sea kayak paddlers also.

There are paddlers along the copper coast who get out regularly, some being members if iska. If you have your own boat and equipment, certainly try an ISKA meet- see their bulletin board. You will meet paddlers from around the country who will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Keep an eye on this forum for details of primarily Clare based meets.

Not knowing what you paddle, for ISKA, ESCK and WISKA, your kayak will need to be 16ft minimum. These groups are specifically sea kayaking.

Thanks Conor.

While I own a WW boat, I never got around to picking up an SK boat (lack of space combined with perfectly adequate fleet of SK boats at our london club). Thanks for the headsup.
