Have an inspiring day out with your Family, Workmates, Club, Stag or Hen party.  An alternative uplifting and exhilirating activity together.  The experience and effect are all good ! 

Different groups have different capabilities and so we guide a hike that will get the best out of your special crew, with extra options for a picnic, refreshments or a meal en route or when you finish.  Include a boat trip around Ireland Eye if you fancy less hiking, but still want that connection with maritime wildlife,  nature and the deep blue sea.

Friedrich Nietzsche famously once said that “All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking” —

Boost the mood- According to a study published in Environmental Science & Technology, outdoor exercise is linked to "greater feelings of revitalization and positive engagement, decreases in tension, confusion, anger and depression, and increased energy."
