Awaken your Giant Spirit

  1. Watersports
    Here in Northern Ireland, tucked between the Atlantic Ocean and the Irish Sea, you’re never far away from water. Which means you’re never far from the fun either! And there’s plenty of fun to had in, on, under and around the water in Northern Ireland no matter what water sport you choose or what sort of activity break you’re looking for.
  2. Fishing
    Right out here on the very north-west of Europe with the Atlantic Ocean to our west and the Irish Sea to our east, the natural conditions for fishing in Northern Ireland are arguably better than anywhere else on the planet: pristine lakes, clear streams and a variable coastline that offers easy access to rich fishing grounds.
  3. Surfing
    Right out here in the north-western corner of Europe you’ll find clean, bracing water, mile upon mile of unspoilt beaches, fresh salty air, and some of the best waves anywhere. Best of all you’ll have it mostly to yourself! So whether you’re a complete beginner or a well-travelled wave-rider, there’s a beach, a surf school and a wave that’s just right for you in Northern Ireland.
  4. Boating, Canoeing & Kayaking
    Northern Ireland is part of an island on the very western edge of Europe. Everywhere you go in search of water-born fun and excitement, you’ll discover marinas, boat yards, canoe and kayak hire specialists who are only too ready and willing to help you make the most of it all.
  5. Coasteering & Bouldering
    If fingerholds, overhangs, routes and faces are your thing, then Northern Ireland is the right place to go coasteering and bouldering. This is the place to learn what it all means and why coasteering and bouldering are such an adrenalin rush.
