We just returned from a stellar trip to Ireland with Columbia Sportswear and the Ireland Tourism folks for a week of hiking, peak bagging, sea kayaking, adventure racing, “coasteering,” and sea stack climbing. Needless to say we got a real taste for the adventure opportunities and wildness (both in the pub and in the outdoors) that Ireland has to offer. The caveat? It was beautiful and sunny nearly the whole time! Not typical Irish weather we’re told. But here are a few Instagram snaps from the trip to whet your appetite.
