About Outdoor Pursuits Club

Welcome back to another eventful year in the Outdoor Pursuits Club (OPC)!

To keep up to date with what's going on within the club on a daily or weekly basis, or have any questions, check out our Instagram (@ulopc)!

The OPC's goals are to spark the interest in our activities and to develop the skills needed for to do these activities safely. We offer regular training for Caving, Climbing and Orienteering and major training for Mountaineering and Outdoor Climbing before international trips to places like Scotland, the Alps, Poland, Spain and beyond!

 Our Sunday Hikes are a great opportunity to get some exercise, meet new people and see some of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. Just bring your boots (they must have ankle support!!), waterproofs, food and water and you will be ready to go.

For our Caving, Orienteering and Outdoor Climbing trips we supply all the gear you might need. On these trips you will apply the skills you learn in our weekday activities. 

OPC weekend trips are fairly infamous. From the old monastery of Letterfrack, Connemara to the Youth Hostel in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains in Glendalough these weekend trips are not to be missed. They have gained legendary status due to the hikes, craic and general debauchery. You would have to go to find out. 

The OPC Climbing Wall is located next to the UL Sports Arena and is one of UL’s best sports facilities. We're so excited to get you all in to try out the new state of the art facility!

Be sure to look out for our trips sign-ups, information will be sent out in the weekly emails or you can check out our Instagram!

See you in the outdoors!
