Honestly lads, Galway has it all.

If you're planning your next outdoorsy weekend adventure in Ireland, definitely consider adding Wildlands in Galway to your list. Less than ten minutes outside the city, this Moycullen spot has everything the thrill seekers among you could possibly want.

Their zip n' trek course soars 15 metres above the ground and stretches for over one kilometre, with four circuits of varying heights and levels of difficulty. There are obstacles of varying difficulty to suit everyone, whether you're a hardcore thrill seeker or just fancy a leisurely stroll through the trees.

The longest zip line extends to almost 100 metres, taking you on a sky ride through the woods with fab views of Ballyquirke Lake along the way. There are over 40 rope, bridge and swing obstacles to get through, so among other things it's also a fairly decent workout. The perfect activity to dust off the cobwebs if you've had a night out in the city the evening before!

Wildlands also offer kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, yoga, archery and plenty of activities for kids. Most importantly, the Olive Tree Kitchen and Wildlands Wagon cafe will keep you fed and watered after a casual jaunt through the trees.

This spot would make for an amazing stag or hens activity, day date or family day out. Find out more about the activities and get booking HERE.
