Sea kayaking to Baily Lighthouse Howth

Sea kayaking to Baily Lighthouse Howth

DEAR FRIENDS!

We are glad to announce the start of the new kayaking season. We will organize this sort of meetups every weekend so you are all very welcome to come and join us.

1. About the Trip

Come and join us for a fun Kayaking trip around the coastline from Shielmartin road in Howth North towards the Baily Lighthouse.

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 plenty of sea birds including cormerants, sea gulls and terns on the сliffs, and hopefully some seals. We kayak out to a point where we can see the daily 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. The trip follows the coastline North towards the Baily Lighthouse.

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.

2. History

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.
