From the start, Dane was funny and helpful. We had never done real rock climbing before, and Dane knew how to cater the experience to us... I cannot recommend this experience enough. It is a MUST DO for anyone going to Dublin. It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to rock climb while overlooking Dublin.

Super fun climbing trip over st. paddy's weekend

My 3 friends and I signed up for this trip without knowing what to expect, but it sooo exceeded our expectations!! The climbing was a perfect mix of challenging and fun and the views were absolutely beautiful. Dane and Lloyd were so great and charismatic and kept us laughing the whole time! They were also super encouraging and attentive - they kept asking if we needed extra layers/gloves/etc when it got a little chillier than expected and kept checking to makeu sure we were comfortable and happy the whole time. They were even nice enough to give us a ride to the train station after. We did this as a short escape from the craziness of Dublin during St. Patrick's Day weekend and it definitely perfectly completed our weekend here in Ireland. Thank you so much!! Would definitely recommend!

Half day rock climbing in Dalkey quarry

My husband and I were given a voucher for a half day rock climbing at Christmas and it was just the best present! I have a fear of heights so was a bit worried about how it would go but Lloyd was a brilliant instructor and ensured we were safe and comfortable throughout. His enthusiasm was infectious and it felt like a great achievement to complete the climbs - and not feel scared!

Rock Climbing at Dalkey Quarry

My wife and I had a great day with owner/operator Dane. He was prompt with emails prior to our trip, punctual the day of the excursion, knowledgeable, and a consumate professional. I say this with over 6 years of climbing experience myself. On top of all that, he was extremely enjoyable to spend the day with and had a great sense of humor. His confident demeanor serves to calm even those with a fear of heights. I highly recommend this excursion to individuals, couples, friends, small groups/corporate team building events or really anyone with a flair for safe adventure. Additionally, the price was very reasonable for the time and attention given.
