We cater for clients of all experience levels from those who have very limited experience of the outdoors and want to have a more relaxed walking, hiking or climbing adventure. We also cater for those seeking a more challenging and thrilling experience such as an ascent of a 400ft sea stack in the most remote and adventurous locations in Ireland. We specialise in applying a holistic approach to learning and teaching to ensure all visitors experience and receive the maximum and most rewarding learning experience during their courses and holidays with us.
