Head to Ireland to Get your Next Adrenaline Rush

An adrenaline rush. A sudden burst of energy with an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, perspiration, and metabolism. Effectively triggering the body’s survival instinct. That’s the ultimate goal of people traversing the globe, indulging and enjoying activities the faint at heart would runaway from. They call it sport. Extreme sport. Now a new destination is emerging for aficionados to push their limits. Extreme sports in Ireland are now grabbing the attention of the global thrill junkies. Read on to find out what Ireland has to offer.

For the land based sports enthusiasts, Ireland has a vast variety of adventure sports to fulfill their needs. For an extreme rush, head to Belfast City to experience the bungee jump located 160 feet above the very site the Titanic was constructed a century ago. Or maybe you could try rock climbing at Donegal’s vast, steep and jagged, Atlantic facing coastline. Maybe mountain-boarding in the Mourne Mountains is more to your taste. You could try zorbing at any one of many regional adventure centers to see if that fills your thirst. Kite buggying, a sport similar to windsurfing, but on land with kites, has also started making it’s presence felt. A little less extreme and ideal for people who would just like to get their feet wet with extreme sports. If two-wheels are more to taste, then mountain biking in Tyrone is for you.


For the water babies, taming the big waves of the Atlantic at Cliffs of Moher or County Clare should be fun. Scuba divers can experience the beautiful underwater shipwrecks and unique rock formations and observe the vast and beautiful marine life all around the coastline. White-water rafting, gorge walking and canoeing in Ireland’s inland waterways and rivers are also viable activities. The vast ocean also has sailing and water skiing for it’s connoisseurs.

If flying is what you were born to do, then you should really check out the hand gliding and paragliding in Ireland. Hand gliding would require proper permissions. Weather permitting, you can go hand gliding throughout the year. Expect strong, warm winds of up to 20 miles per hour in the summer and cool, smooth winds in the winter. An excellent way to get a new perspective of Ireland’s breathtaking natural beauty.

Ireland just has it all. The mountains, the rivers, the breath taking landscapes and the mighty Atlantic coastline. All you need is your imagination and a craving for that adrenaline rush to make possible whatever you want. So the next time you are planning a memorable vacation, travel to Ireland to get the next thrill of your life.
