Get Outdoors in Northern Ireland this September


Explore the waters of Lough Erne by canoe.  Come face to face with cute Red Squirrels in the Sperrins.  Try mountain biking in County Down.  Learn outdoor wilderness skills.  And much, much more.

It’s fun, it’s fresh and it’s FREE!

Get Outdoors Weekend is jam packed with outdoor activity events across Northern Ireland on 20 & 21 September.  You will be spoilt for choice with over 50 FREE OF CHARGE events catering for young ones and the not so young!


Try your hand with expert guidance at coasteering, mountain biking or archery... or enjoy guided walks spotting red squirrels or reaching the peaks of the Mourne Mountains.  Families can also choose between 5 Family Activity Days taking place where they can participate in outdoor activities such as bushcraft, climbing and laser pigeon shooting as well as fun activities such as face painting and arts and crafts.  Guides and experts will show you the ropes, teach you the skills and offer a lot of encouragement along the way.

So gather your family, your friends or your other half and get out there.
