Go Riding What better way to enjoy the West’s best beaches by galloping through the water’s edge at speed. Along the West coast there are number of horse trekking options that will bring you along the best beaches in the country. Horse trekking is a perfect way to get dirty with your partner without having the locals talking….. For a full list of equestrian and trekking clubs by county visit www.aire.ie . Paddling Pleasures While no-one has ever regarded wearing a wetsuit as being sexy, donning one and gliding across a calm lake or open sea-water maybe the most peaceful and intimate activity you could do as a couple. Why not view The Cliffs of Moher from the sea, explore the serene lakes of Connemara or the waters around Clew Bay in Mayo and Fanad Peninsula in Donegal or just cruise along the River Shannon at Limerick, Clare or Leitrim. Make them see Stars There are a number of notable spots along the West where you will get perfect star gazing opportunities. Ballycroy National Park contains the Dark Sky Park which will provide the perfect dark conditions needed to view some pristine skies while Wild Nephin Wilderness in Mayo and Lough Gur in Limerick are other highly significant and perfectly tranquil locations for star gazing in the West. It’s all A-Boat Love The River Shannon loops from Limerick City into Clare where it enters Lough Derg before flowing into a number of other counties including Galway, Roscommon and Leitrim. The River Shannon offers up an array of options which should help bring any couple closer together. There are a number or activity centres offering canoeing, windsurfing, kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding. Or why not catch your own lunch with a calm day of fishing, but if that sounds like too much effort then just sit back and relax with a river boat cruise along the Shannon.
