What you'll do
Take a scenic journey on Irish Rail out to Dalkey Train Station. From there it's a short, 15 minute walk to Dalkey Quarry, a former granite quarry. There myself or one of my instructors will meet you and supply you with all the safety gear needed for the climbing experience. This experience is suitable for • Complete beginners who just want to 'have a go' • Those looking for a friendly transition from indoor gyms to real rock environment • We can also tailor a more advanced climbing experience for those with outdoor experience Dalkey Quarry has available routes for every age, fitness level and experience. We will set up fun and easy climbs for you to enjoy. You will also get the chance if you choose to abseil down flat rock face ranging in height from 25 to 85 feet. Not only will this be exhilarating, but you will also get to experience the best panoramic views Dublin has to offer. We will take pictures throughout the session that will be sent to you afterwards so you can keep for your memories. Afterwards there is a lovely walk above the quarry which you can take before heading back to the train station.
I have always had a passion for the outdoors, and have been working in the adventure industry for over nine years. I am a qualified rock climbing, kayaking, and paddle board instructor. I run my own adventure company (www.adventuretime.ie) I work full time as a youth worker where I use outdoors sports as a tool with young people. My love for the outdoors has taken me on great adventures throughout the world, so if that inspires you to start your own adventure, get in touch.
Water, Sweets I'll have lots of water and sweets to keep the energy levels up.
Safety equipment I will provide a harness and helmet, and I will have all other equipment needed for a great day of climbing.
