We believe that outdoor education is a life skill that everybody should have. It not only educates, but gives confidence and energy to
every participant. We also believe that learning in an outdoor environment should be fun and exciting for students. And we feel that by
combining with the IYHA (An Óige) and Dartfield, our programmes at Knockree, Glendalough, Killarney, Dublin, Donegal and
Galway meet all of these criteria.

Our instructors bring a combined experience of decades in outdoor education and are qualified in their relevant disciplines bringing an
enthusiasm that will help every group enjoy their visit to us.

Our new Mobile Activity Unit is helping groups with tight budgets and brings EcoAdventure Ireland to an even larger audience.

EcoAdventure Ireland's expertise and passion for outdoor pursuits, at last schools, youth groups, scouts troops, community projects and companies have a professional choice of location and service when it comes to outdoor education - and all at a very competitive price.

Being aware of the difficulties for organisers of events we are conscious of not only the budgetary constrains but also the importance of having an all-in package available to teachers and group leaders. With this in mind we have put together a number of sample packages to give an overall flavour of what we can provide, bringing the opportunity to apply what is learned is the classroom to the field for students. Our Activity Packages are available to groups of all sizes and ages.

With full conference facilities we also provide team training and team building days, facilitation and workshops for both the corporate and voluntary sectors. We have locations in both Enniskerry - Co Wicklow, Glendalough - Co Wicklow, Killarney  - Co Kerry, Dublin City, Errigal - Co. Donegal and Loughrea - Co. Galway.
