Zipit Forest Adventures is a treetop high ropes course set in beautiful Coillte forests in Dublin, Cork and Roscommon. A place where students can enjoy an exhilarating and challenging outdoor activity in a natural setting, building confidence, teamwork and self-esteem. Swing into cargo nets, whizz down ziplines, trek across a floating bridge and be immersed in our stunning countryside.
Big challenges or baby steps, our energetic instructors will encourage and motivate even the most nervous student, creating a lasting sense of achievement. With circuits for every fitness level, Zipit provides a school tour that everyone enjoys!
Of course, we know that teachers need to enjoy their day too and what better way to bond with your students, than participating alongside them! Free participation and free tea and coffee for all teachers. But of course, you can choose to watch from terra firma and we do ask that at least one supervisor remains on the ground at all times.
Cost is Ä15 per primary school student (3rd class upwards) and Ä18-Ä20 per secondary student with activities lasting for approximately 4 hours. Zipit can take up to 150+ students in any one day, by staggering start times.
With parallel Safety Briefings, we ensure a streamlined throughput so everyone has a great school tour.
We also cater for small schools and classes, with no minimum numbers, subject to availability.
Risk V Safety
Everyday life is full of risks and challenges and we provide students of all ages the opportunity to experience perceived risk in a controlled environment.
Our safety harnesses are designed with a dual safety element, eliminating the risk of accidental removal of both safety devices while on the course.
Students are fitted with a harness by a trained Instructor and given a safety briefing before moving at their own pace.
Zipit operates to the highest EU safety standards. Our Instructors hold European Ropes Course Association qualifications and are first aid trained. Should a student need to come down off the course, when they reach their limits (physically or mentally) our instructors are trained to bring them down safely, and talk them through what is happening.
We provide the opportunity to learn life skills in a safe environment, giving the opportunity to problem-solve, make choices, push limits and controlled risk taking.
