Essentially, at Kippure Estate, the opportunities for bonding, immersing in nature, embracing new experiences and tapping into your adventurous spirit are endless.
Abseiling from tree canopies down to the forest floor; taking a leap of faith to grasp a suspended trapeze; racing against the clock and other teams to solve a critical mission, cooking in the wild in Master Chef-style; these are just some of the fun-filled adventures Kippure Estate has to offer. We want to share with you the natural splendour of our surroundings providing the perfect setting for an abundance of outdoor activities to do. You can embark on your own explorations and self-led hikes or participate in one of the many activities and team building programmes led by our experienced instructors.
For companies and organizations, we offer a series of fun-filled adventure and team building activities that encourage inclusive participation from all the team members and inductive learning to help build and foster healthy and productive work environments. Ropes courses, archery, orienteering, treasure hunts, sky-trekking and outdoor survival skills are just some of what we have to offer that give confidence and the desire to reach new heights, both cooperatively and as an individual. Team mates learn so much about themselves and each other including newfound skills and how to work more cohesively and dynamically together.
