Adventure Sports in Ireland


Ireland is a thing of breathtaking beauty, the hills are green, the land is filled with history and the people are very friendly. It’s no wonder a lot of people put Ireland at the top of the countries they want to visit. But more than the pub life, tourists can take a variety of adventure sports in the country. All a traveller really needs to do is rent a car so that they can go to these destinations that are perfect for each specific sport. Car hire companies will be more than willing to service the specific needs of the adventure tourist. Some of adventures that can be taken at Ireland are: Canal Cruise Ireland can be navigated through its vast network of rivers, canals and loughs. The longest river in Britain in Ireland, the River Shannon, is the center of this network of waterways, and this is where the most popular cruise plies its route as it runs down from Enniskillen to Killaloe. The gentle pace of the trip gives visitors a leisurely time for side visits to various destinations like castles, or golf courses. The river cruise is perfect for families with small children. Biking Biking gives travellers the perfect opportunity to see the countryside. The varied terrain makes biking very interesting and, at some points, very challenging. Most of the routes though are gentle, which is perfect for the leisure-oriented biker. Ireland offers bike tours where the lodging, guide, and wagon support are already provided. Caving Spelunking is a popular sport in Ireland. In fact it enjoys a strong following. The sport requires strong will and nerves but the thrill itself is the reward. A lot of cave systems are accessible from many of the major cities. Some of the popular caving sites are the Fermanagh/Sligo region, Country Cork, and Clare. Leser systems can be found in Country Kerry and Country Kilkenny.
