WELCOME TO CAPPANALEA OETC

Cappanalea is a Public Outdoor Education & Training Centre (OETC) run under the auspices of Kerry Education and Training Board. The Centre was established by Killorglin Community Council and Munster AFAS (Association of Adventure Sports). The Centre focuses on personal development through the medium of adventure sports. The highly qualified instructors offer programmes which include the full range of adventure sports and field study activities. All of our programmes make students aware of and develop their often hidden talents and skills. We also teach them about team building and focus on how an individual can make their contribution to the effectiveness of a team. In our programmes we use adventure education and outdoor / wilderness experiences to enhance the learning outcomes. Purchase an activity or make a payment here »
