The Irish Mountaineering Academy offers half-day, full-day, two-day, and six-week courses.

Their goal is to make you into a safe and confident rock climber. All of the courses look at the knots you’ll need to know to climb, how to set up and belay a climber, abseiling, and of course, include loads of time rock climbing. The courses are based at various unique coastal climbing venues in the Ailladie/Ballryan area, just 10 minutes from the village of Doolin.

Corporate/team building workshops:

Team building workshops are designed for corporate and private groups, emphasising trust, communication, leadership and, most importantly, team spirit. The team-building workshops run in adventurous environments, such as on cliff faces for abseiling or rock climbing.
