Delphi: great experiences in a stunning environment

Delphi Resort is nestled in the heart of the Delphi valley, Connemara, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Located on a 200 acre forest site along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way, breathtaking mountain vistas provide a dramatic backdrop to the Resort which overlooks the banks of the Bundorragha River. 

Delphi Resort has undergone a huge transformation over the last 30 years, without losing its roots as a premier adventure destination in Ireland. Established over 35 years ago as an adventure centre and hostel catering for both domestic and international school children, Delphi Resort has evolved into one of Irelands’ leading destinations and now boasts a newly built 206-bed Failte Ireland ‘Welcome Standard’ approved hostel, 4* Hotel, Restaurant, Bar, Spa, Yoga Studio, Cafe, and onsite Adventure Centre. 

Outdoor education

Throughout the years the schools and youth group outdoor education and adventure programmes have remained at the heart of Delphi Resorts’ offering. Delphi Resort’s stimulating environment helps to change perspectives and broaden the horizons of pupils. 

There is something exhilarating about being outdoors and Delphi Resorts’ multi-activity programmes encourage students to experience the great outdoors through an exciting itinerary of land and water-based activities. Everything from a Gaisce hike to kayaking the Killary Fjord, the infamous Bog Challenge, Aerial Zip-Line and Trekking, Archery, Climbing and much, much more. 

Building students’ skills

These activities help build students’ self-confidence and develop greater emotional intelligence, inter-personal skills and team spirit in a safe and awe-inspiring environment. Delphi Resort offers all-inclusive action-packed school/youth group packages with activities running from 9.30am-9pm daily and 24 hour supervision provided for students. 

One teacher travels free of charge per 15 students, with teachers accommodation provided in the 4* Hotel. 

Over 200 school/youth groups choose Delphi Resort annually for their adventure trip, with over 99% of the school’s and youth groups Delphi welcomed last year planning a return trip. Some of the feedback from past groups include “Delphi just keeps getting better and better” and “Best school tour bar none!”

More than an adventure centre

Today, Delphi is far from just an adventure centre, it is an experience – one that warmly welcomes all visitors, from those seeking adrenaline-fuelled adventures, action-packed school and youth group tours, corporate team bonding trips to romantic getaways, quality-time family trips or those seeking pure relaxation.
