Welcome to Bushcraft Ireland.

What is Bushcraft?

Bushcraft is a blending of ancient outdoor skills such as knife craft, shelter building, fire-lighting and woodcraft, combined with modern skills and technologies which allow us to get a fuller experience of Nature. We offer 2 day Basic Bushcraft and Advanced Bushcraft courses, Wilderness First Aid and Family Bushcraft courses.

We provide a unique, high quality outdoor education experience covering many aspects of bushcraft, wilderness survival and nature awareness. All our courses are run in relaxed way whilst being as informative as possible. We want all our students to have fun and to go away from our bushcraft course with a real sense of achievement.

Our philosophy is to train and guide our students through the world of nature as a participant not just an observer. We strive to give each student a deeper understanding of the natural world, allowing them to feel part of their environment and so live closer to it. You will learn through simple but effective bushcraft skills, how to work and live with nature and increasing your confidence in the wilderness and in your everyday life.
