  • Horseback Riding in Donegal: The wild and woolly coast of Donegal offers the perfect scenic backdrop for trail riding, and as varied a terrain -- beaches, countryside, mountains -- as you'll find anywhere.

  • Sea Kayaking in West Cork: In Castletownbere on the dramatic, rugged Beara Peninsula, Beara Outdoor Pursuits specializes in accompanied trips out and around Bere Island and as far as Glengarriff. You can play it as safe or as rough as you want.

  • Bicycling in the Southwest: The peninsulas and islands of Cork and Kerry are perfect for cycling, with an abundance of beautiful places to visit. Roycroft's Stores in Skibbereen, County Cork, rent bikes that are a notch above the usual rental equipment.
