Snorkelling may be (wrongly) perceived as being reserved only for Mediterranean or Caribbean holidays where warm waters are the order of the day and there is an abundance of exotic marine life. The Irish coastline offers a fascinating and diverse eco-system that rivals these far flung destinations.
With over 3,000 miles of unspoilt coastline to discover the oportunites are endless. Not only is snorkelling in Ireland fun but its easy and requires very little equipment.
It is accessible to anyone regardless of age and does not require expensive or complicated equipment.
Here in the Irish Underwater Council we are passionate about snorkelling, we think Ireland is one of the top destinations in the world to snorkel in, but don’t take our word for it, click on the movie below, that was shot at Silver Strand,Malin Beg, Co Donegal by Victor Kutischef, or better still give it a go and see for yourself!!
