What to Bring

What you’ll need for residential school trips at our adventure centre in Wicklow

When you come on a school trip to Kippure Estate, we want to make sure you enjoy every minute of your stay with us. Our outdoor education centre offers first class facilities, but we do recommend that you bring these personal essentials with you to make the most of your time.

For overnight stays you will need:

  • A waterproof rain jacket (essential)
  • Waterproof trousers (useful)
  • A full change of clothes and shoes
  • Warm clothes in case the weather is cold during your stay
  • Towel
  • Toiletries
  • Night wear
  • Slippers (optional)
  • Snacks (our tuck shop is open during the day; the nearest village shop is 8km away)

If you are visiting us in late autumn, winter or early spring, you will also need:

  • A warm hat
  • Gloves
  • A warm, padded jacket to protect against the wind
  • Strong shoes/boots

For summer time visits, we advise:

  • Insect repellent
  • Sun cream
  • Long sleeves and trousers are also useful in summer (otherwise the activities involved might result in stings from insects or plants)

If you are camping at Kippure Estate, you’ll need to bring all your own camping equipment, including:

  • Tent
  • Sleeping bag
  • Sleeping mat
  • Cooking pots
  • Stove, etc.

For further information or to make a booking, just get in touch and one of our team will be more than happy to assist you.
