Keep Hydrated

Water bottleFrom water bottles to hydration packs, it's essential to bring water for any hike into the unknown. Generally a 1 - 2 Litres of water will be sufficient for a 10km hike. We stock Water bottles from Contigo and hydration packs from Vango.

Pack Light

Day PackKeep your hands free with a lightweight backpack that's specifically designed to make any hike comfortable while holding everything you need close at hand. Berghaus daypacks with their Freeflow Back Systems are an easy choice.

Stay Connected

Solar ChargerIn case of emergency, it's always handy to have a fully charged phone. But just in case you're on a multi day hike or trek, a PowerMonkey Extreme from PowerTraveller can keep you powered up wherever theres sunlight and even when there's none.

Hiking Trousers

Hiking Trousers PantsConvertible trousers like those from The North Face and Columbia make hiking in the changeable Irish weather tolerable. Being able to change from trousers to shorts is a joy when it's cold in the morning and warm in the afternoon.
We have everything for men and women here.

Hiking Boots or Shoes
