What Is Zipit?
Thrills await high among the treetops at Zipit in Dublin, Cork and Roscommon.
Discover your wild side in our treetop high ropes parks, with fun and excitement for all the family. Our courses are built in a natural forest setting, offering the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life – immerse yourself in nature in the breathtaking Irish countryside.
Zipit’s fun-packed circuits include zip lines, swinging logs, cargo nets and rope bridges. You can enjoy thrills high above the ground with the most up to date safety equipment to ensure you get the most out of your visit. Come as a family, come on your own, or bring along a group. There is no better endorsement than the families, school tours, corporate outings and youth groups that return to us year on year.
All instructors are ERCA certified and operate to the highest safety standards at all times. Each Zipit session lasts three hours and includes the completion of a safety briefing.
Circuits can be completed at your own pace, with all the family able to participate at the lower levels. Circuits are age dependent and children must be supervised by an adult, either participating or from the ground.
You only pay if you wear a harness.
Zipit courses are designed to be fun, challenging and perfect for anyone looking for adventure in the great outdoors. You don’t need to be an expert or fully-fledged adrenaline junkie and all circuits are designed and operated to the highest safety standards
So come on…. branch out and enjoy the high life at Zipit!
What Makes Us Unique?
We build all our courses in Coillte forestry, with every activity starting and finishing at a tree. There are no concrete structures or wooden poles in sight. We ensure minimum impact to the forest park. Our whole activity could be dismantled, leaving the forest undamaged. We look after our trees, and the platforms are built to allow the tree to continue growing. Activities can be changed and trees rested, whenever inspections request it.
It’s non-stop fun and adventure once you take your feet off the ground.
Family holidays in France, enjoying high ropes courses in the sunshine, brought two families together to bring that exhilarating feeling to Ireland – rain or shine! Securing a licence from Coillte land to use forestry, we hired the most experienced French Construction Company to build our courses and ensure safety was paramount.
Zipit Forest Adventures opened its (and Ireland’s) first forest high ropes course at Lough Key Forest and Activity Park, Co. Roscommon in 2011. In 2013, we opened our second course in Tibradden Wood, Dublin 16 in the wonderful Dublin Mountains. Our third course in Farran Forest Park, Co. Cork opened for business in 2015.
Zipit Forest Adventures Vision
Our vision is to re-introduce adventure to participants whilst challenging and motivating them to reach beyond their perceived limitations. Since the Covid Pandemic, being outdoors is the new staying in! We are delighted to see the growing appreciation of our natural countryside and to be part of the exciting expansion of recreational opportunities that are available across the country.
