Our comprehensive rock climbing courses are suited for and aimed at all levels.
From beginners wanting to take their first steps, novices and intermediates wanting to further their skills or groups of friends just looking to try something different!!!
We offer full day, half day or evening courses and they take place in two different locations in Kerry.
The magnificent Gap of Dunloe – This area of outstanding beauty is one of the very best and picturesque places for rock climbing in the whole of Ireland and is situated just outside the bustling town of Killarney. The climbing consists of old red sandstone crags and cliffs mainly of horizontal cracks with loads of single pitch climbs of various grades, and all only a short 15 minute walk from the road.
Dunshean Head, Dingle Peninsula – Here we climb on the phenomenal sandstone sea cliffs of Dún Séanna. This stunning headland is situated just outside Dingle town. Climbing on these cliffs with the waves crashing below is a truly enlivening experience and enhanced all the more by the views across Dingle Bay and the mountains beyond. (Unfortunately due to an ongoing access issue we are at present unable to offer Dunshean Head as a climbing venue at this time.)

• Knots and ropework
