Whitewater Tubing - Outdoor Discovery Adventure Company, Cork

If you fancy chasing the rapids and getting that blood pumping, then why not try this great activity in Cork. You don't need any experience and they'll provide all the equipment.

Hot Air Ballooning - Irish Balloon Flights, Various

If you've watched the movie 'Up', you're probably dying to ride in one of these. With locations in County Meath, Athlone, and Kilkenny, this is a great way to mark a special occasion.

Hovercrafting - Irish Extreme Sports, Various

You can give this a go in Cavan, Derry and Leitrim and it's been described as "trying to drive a car on ice". Cool, eh?
