Sometimes living in the most beautiful place in the world makes you lazy: You neglect to explore the wonders on your own doorstep. With that in mind, I decided to go kayaking with my three children (8, 12, and 14) and my sister at Ross Castle, Killarney, and booked a three-hour trip with Cappanalea Outdoor Education Centre. Our guide, Colette, was superb. She got us kitted out, into our kayaks, and out on the water with the minimum fuss - even though we were all beginners. Brilliant with the kids, she was great fun and completely unfazed by our ineptitude and clumsiness, getting the three of us who capsized right way up again and back paddling again within minutes. The three hours flew by and we left exhausted, happy, and with a new appreciation of our incredible surroundings. It was also extremely reasonably priced, particularly in comparison with competitors.
