Go Coasteering on Clare Island
I’ve been on Clare Island and struggled to stand upright as fierce winds pushed me sideways. I’ve also gotten sunburnt, before dipping into translucent waters in coves that resemble tropical beaches. Both incidents occurred within days of each other – such is life on this wildly rugged, unpredictable island. Throw yourself into the spirit of the place (quite literally) with a coasteering session. A combination of wild swimming and cliff jumping, you’ll be guided around the shores of the island and leap from its craggy peaks – NB
While you’re at it: Embrace the wilderness with a stay in the Clare Island Lighthouse.
