Kippure Adventure and Education Centre provides exciting opportunities for children and adults. Our courses include Eco-Adventure Days for schools, Family Days, Fun & Adventure Days for Transition Years and groups of all ages, as well as Ecology & Geography Field Studies for Junior and Leaving Certificate groups.

Our 240 acre private estate is set in northwest Co. Wicklow, near Manor Kilbride village. Kippure Estate is 45 mins from Dublin city centre – close enough to give students a real away-from-home experience whilst not travelling too far.


All our courses take place on-site; the Liffey and many of its tributaries flow through the estate, and we have extensive mature Mixed and Oak woodland habitats. We can also provide a Grassland ecology study. Our unique woodland Adventure Centre includes a High & Low Ropes Challenge Course, Climbing Walls, Abseiling Towers, a 100m long Zip Line and Ireland’s only Sky Trek.


The theme of our courses is education through adventure and teamwork. We are happy to custom design your day to meet the needs and requirements of your group.
