Sea Kayaking to Baily Lighthouse – Howth

We kayak along the coastline from Beach North towards the Lighthouse. We pass a Martello tower, one of many built along the coast of Ireland. These towers were built during the 19th century as coastal Forts. On this trip we see some of sea birds like cormorants, sea gulls and hopefully some seals. We kayak out to a point where we can see the Baily lighthouse.

We stop on a small beach area in the base of the cliffs for some refreshments. We do take some photos during the trip which we will upload to the event page after the trip.

This kayaking session is suitable for the beginners, but all of you have to be 18 years of age and over and must know how to swim.

What do you need to bring with you?
We will provide:


The Baily Lighthouse is located on a rocky promontory over looking Dublin Bay. It was at this location that the Norse Vikings fled to regroup after the Battle of Clontarf in 1014 and was also the point where they boarded their long boats and left Howth for the last time after the Normans invasion in 1177. In 1667 it was decided to build a light signal here to warn ships of the danger at night. The Bailey Lighthouse as you see it today was built in 1814 and it’s tower stands 134 feet above the sea. A fog bell was later added in 1853 In 1996, the lighthouse was converted to automatic operation, and the last of the Keepers left in 1997, making Baily the last Irish lighthouse to go automatic.


If you are driving once you come to the Sutton Cross junction, follow the road called Greenfield road, in about about 800 meters you will need to turn right and drive along the coast line till the end of the strand road, you pass the Sailing Club, drive more straight for about 500 meters and you will see us. If you are coming by bus you will need to take number 31A from lower Abbey Street and come out at the stop N688 which is a stop at the Shielmartin road. Once you come out of the bus you should see us.
