Coronavirus and Tollymore National Outdoor Centre

Since March 2020, the world of outdoor activity and adventure sports has changed dramatically. We went through a period with very restricted access to outdoor spaces and when restrictions were eased, there was a sudden and huge increase in the number of people participating in a range of adventure sports. Tollymore re-opened to deliver courses at the end of July, following an extensive review of policies and risk assessments.

A number of changes were made including:

  • Our accommodation capacity has been reduced from over 40 people to a maximum of 18.
  • Limited access to the centre
  • Revised and updated risk assessments
  • All participants on our minibuses must wear face coverings at all times on minibuses (unless an appropriate medical cert detailing otherwise is provided)
  • New equipment management policies were introduced to ensure all equipment supplied to students on courses is corona – free
  • Climbing Wall capacity has been reduced

Tollymore continues to deliver a range of skills and leadership courses to groups and individuals and we will do everything reasonable to ensure that your course meets all of your needs, is safe and is delivered in a fun, learning environment!

Have a look at the range of courses on this website – if you cannot find the course that you are looking for, please email us at

You can still drop in to buy tea and coffee, brownies and traybakes and sausage rolls.

Tollymore will continue to be guided by the advice from the Northern Ireland Executive, Health Promotion Agency NI and Health & Safety Executive NI, as well as our expert group within Sport NI.

Tollymore National Outdoor Centre has a long history in providing skills and leadership based courses for various types of groups and individuals which introduces participants to one or more adventure sports. Courses and programmes range from one day, non-residential courses through to programmes over a week long. New world , new you, learn a new skill.
