Activities In Ireland

Ireland Activities Travelguide

With a landscape of greatly varied terrain spread across a relatively small country, Ireland makes for the perfect location no matter what activity you are looking to take part in. The only drawback can be the weather, especially outside of the somewhat warmer and drier summer months, so if you are taking part in an outdoor pursuit in Ireland be sure to check the weather forecast beforehand and always have a raincoat at hand!

Cycling in Ireland


From woodland parks to beaches and mountains, Ireland has always had a great selection of cycling routes to choose from. Recently, there has been a rise in what are known as 'Greenways' springing up in Ireland. These are designated walking and cycling paths and are usually created from disused railway lines.
