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.
