Where you'll be

Birdwatch Ireland's East Coast Nature Reserve in Newcastle is home to a treasure-trove of Irish wildlife and a rare natural habitat, the coastal wetlands. Black Ditch Forest provides you with a glimpse of what 90% of Ireland looked like in her ancient past. Travel back in time to when woodlands spread from coast to coast. At Newcastle Beach along the sea you can really breathe in the beauty of the Irish landscape.

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 6 guests of all ages can attend. For parents with infants and toddlers, I would recommend bringing a carrier as some of the trails are not suitable for prams.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

Alcohol

This experience includes alcohol. Only guests who meet the legal drinking age will be served alcoholic beverages.

More tips

Please come dressed for the weather, especially proper footwear, including hiking boots and a rain jacket. Day packs are recommended. We will travel approximately nine kilometers on even terrain.
