Week 4 - Glendalough 

TYs left a wet & windy Dublin and headed to a bright & sunny Glendalough this morning! 576 steps to the top&apparently “the wind at the top would knock you out. Frankie thought I was going to be blown off the side.” Let’s hope the view was worth the hike!

Week 3 - Bullock Harbour

TY students had perfect conditions for coasteering at Bullock Harbour in Dalkey on Tuesday!Light winds and high tide! Some super swimming and jumping! Well done to everyone but especially to those students who overcame their fear of heights and water by taking part!

Week 2 - Blessington Lakes

A beautiful day was had out kayaking in Blessington Lake on Tuesday.  

Chloe Fitzgerald from 401 told us the best part of her day was paddling through the challenges and getting to swim at the end of it!!! The worst part of the day was falling out of the kayak!!! I think we can all relate Chloe!! Well done!!! Look like a great day!!!

Week 1 - Howth

Lovely start to the day as our TY students began their Outdoor Pursuits module. Blue skies and great views from the Howth Head walk! Catching views of the tall ships sailing out to sea! Such a beautiful day to get out and about and discover all that Dublin has to offer!
