Locals from the North Coast are already pencilling in the weekend of 23rd and 24th March in their diaries for Northern Ireland’s third Adventureland Weekend.

Over this weekend the North Coast is set to become a key destination where no less than thirty four outdoor activity events will be on offer for both locals and tourists alike. For one weekend only all events are being offered at a fraction of the price to kick start the activity season on one of Europe’s most famous coastlines.

Over this unique weekend, twenty-three activity providers from all over Northern Ireland will offer events at either £10pp or 50% off in order to celebrate the rich variety of outdoor activities available. On offer along the North Coast, families will be able to choose from an exhilarating sea safari ride along the Causeway Coast and Rathlin Island, test their skills on a stand up paddle board in Portrush or enjoy a relaxing canoe trip on the River Roe.

The more adventurous out there can try out surf kayaking in Portrush, experience the buzz of hovercrafting in Limavady or learn to surf some waves at Benone Strand or Portrush.

The Northern Ireland Adventureland campaign has been launched by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board (NITB) in association with NITB’s Activity Tourism Officer, Julie McLaughlin, said: “Whether people are looking to have fun with their friends, spend some quality time with their other half or do something different with the family, there really is something for everyone this Adventureland Weekend.

“The weekend gives everybody the chance to try something new and fun for great value and with ten North Coast and Glens of Antrim based activity providers offering a range of ‘come and try it’ activity sessions from horse trekking to have a go sailing sessions, there really is no better time to get you, your family and your friends booked onto an adventure this spring,” added Julie.

Beverley Pierson from explains what the weekend is all about. “Northern Ireland Adventureland Weekend is about getting outdoors and trying something new. It is the perfect kick start to a whole summer of outdoor activities and all events are perfect for beginners, enthusiasts, families or groups of friends. With qualified and experienced instructors showing people the ropes, no experience is necessary and all that’s required is a sense of adventure. 
“It promises to be a great weekend with so many fantastic activities right on people’s doorsteps at such great prices. Over 1400 people took part in last year’s event so make sure you get your place booked soon,” said Beverley.
