Weekend Adventures Things To Do

Looking to leave your everyday life behind for a little while? Well, Cork has an array of activities to whet your adventurous side.

Cork's Harbour Islands are full of adventure for all ages! For Watersports, activities and more visit corksharbourislands.ie

Get a crash course in the basics of Kayaking before embarking on a trip around one of the most beautiful and unique marine environments in the world with Kayak Cork Harbour of Whitegate.

If an afternoon at sea takes your fancy, we have the Atlantic Ocean right on our doorstep so arrange to go diving or deep sea fishing with Youghal Dive Charters’ state of the art ‘Sea Hunter’ boat or, for something a little closer to the city, check out the different tours available from the crew at Cork Sea Safari.


Fota Wildlife Park can provide the perfect warm up or cool down for such activities as its 70 acres are set on the beautiful Fota Island, with further walks to be enjoyed around the nearby Fota House & Gardens.

If you’re the sporty type, you can always test you skills against Fota Island’s 18-hole, championship-standard golf course. If you want to try out a traditional Irish sport you can check out Playgaelicgames.com  No matter what you choose, just don’t forget your camera!
