In Nature, Off-Grid, On Full Charge

Setting out in teams, they will work together to solve logical problems, observational clues and mind-twisting tests, all in amongst two of Ireland's most treasured beauty spots.

Designed with minimum technology, this off-grid, low-tech hunt will see your team interact personally again. Our variation in clue types ensures everyone can reveal their natural strengths and enjoy being given a chance to shine.  Our treasure hunts are also an opportunity for you to off-set your travel carbon footprint!
