Donegal Adventure Centre (DAC) campus is one of Ireland’s premier adventure facilities located in Bundoran, a famous seaside resort along the magnificent Wild Atlantic Way. Donegal - Ireland's second largest county is renowned for its pristine beaches and offshore islands. So much so, Donegal was named the 'Coolest Place On The Planet' to visit by National Geographic Traveller in 2017.

There are many more beautiful places nearby, such as Ireland’s oldest town – Ballyshannon, historic castles, Yeats Country, national parks and gardens which we visit during the duration of our all-year-round residential camps.
