Mountaineering Ireland wish to invite members of youth climbing clubs from all over Ireland for a weekend of rock climbing on the beautiful Cruit Island in County Donegal on the 25th and 26th July 2020.  Cruit is a perfect place for sea cliff climbing in a very family friendly location – with golden sand beaches, hidden sheltered coves, granite sea cliffs, quality boulders…the island is a real haven for outdoor adventures. 

For youth climbing club members who would like help to experience some of Cruit’s classic climbs, there will be several rock climbing instructors on duty to help with setting top ropes, learning to lead climb or developing your skills as a trad climber.

Spaces are limited for instruction over the weekend.  Please complete and submit the following online application form and parental consent form if you wish to avail of any support with rock climbing as part of the meet and Mountaineering Ireland will get back to confirm your place before the end of April 2020. 


If you wish to attend as a family of independent rock climbers for the weekend there is no need to complete the online form, we will see you at the crag!

A camping option for families is available on the island thanks to the goodwill of the local landowner here: 


Otherwise there are numerous local Airbnb style accommodation options on Cruit.
