The Congregation of brothers and sisters have developed a project called Adventure Retreats Ireland in cooperation with the Tanagh Outdoor Centre. The centre delivers high quality adventure activities and retreats on a day or residential basis for schools, youth groups, scouts, universities and colleges. The centre is located in a region of overwhelming beauty. The magic of this region lies in its gentle rolling hills, lakes, meandering rivers through enchanting forests and ever changing vistas. The centre provides a range of water-based and land-based adventure activities for all. Website is http://www.tanaghoutdooreducation.com
