Ireland The Playground

Wild Atlantic Way

Located on the edge of Europe and exposed to the Atlantic Ocean, the west coast of Ireland has become a gloriously battle scarred and featured coastline. Stretching from Kinsale in the south to Malin Head in the North this wild and beautiful coast is perfect for those wishing to find themselves out in the elements and feeling the thrill of existing in the nature.

Macgillycuddy's Reeks

The mountain range in the west of County Kerry where Ireland highest mountain Carrauntoohil (pronounced car-awn-tool) resides. At a mere 1038 meters high it doesn't sound like much but that doesn't make it any less spectacular to climb. The beauty of the mountains of Kerry can only be truly appreciated from the ground and with views stretching right out over the Atlantic and scenic glens to explore they make for a hikers paradise.

Shannon River

At over 300km long and covering nearly a fifth of Ireland the Shannon and its lakes are perfect for those who want to explore inland Ireland. With activities such as cruises on Lough Derg or a kayaking on the historic Shannon estuary making for fun and exciting days out for your group. Historic towns all along its banks add to its allure.

Great Irish Greenways:

Ireland has many well established Greenways (cycle ways) to explore around the country. These are usually located off the main roads on old railway lines or canals which make them both safe to use and surrounded by natural beauty. A perfect way to see the real Ireland.

Ireland the Island

As an island nation on the edge of an ocean we Irish have a close and harmonious relationship with the sea. Nowhere can this be seen more clearly than our enthusiasm for water sports. No active tour of Ireland would be complete without getting your feet a little wet.

Mountains of Ireland

The subject of many a song and poem, the hills and mountains of Ireland are the perfect place to see the beauty of the exposed Irish landscape. With hugely varied landscapes of beaches, bogs, mountains and fields offering the perfect escape to a rich outdoor world.
