Gartan Outdoor Education Centre is superbly located, set on 87 acres on the shores of Gartan Lough, 15 minutes from Letterkenny, Co Donegal, Ireland.

Set on our own rambling 87-acre woodland estate, where wild things grow, we’re on the shore of beautiful Lough Gartan in the heart of Donegal.

Over the past 25 years we have been developing courses at all levels in a wide range of outdoor sports. While we particularly welcome those new to our world of outdoors and adventure, we equally appeal to those more experienced who are keen to develop their skills and outdoor experience through our many higher standard training courses.

We run a very varied program of Outdoor Learning and Adventure Sport training courses, holidays and guided trips, most run from our very comfortable base on the southern shore of Gartan Lough.

Along with the highest standard of instruction, we also include really comfortable and cosy accommodation, first class equipment and facilities, excellent catering, and 87 acres of rambling, woodland lakeshore estate.

Owned and managed by Co. Donegal Education and Training Board (ETB), we at Gartan have a particular belief in the benefit of outdoor, experiential learning using adventure sports and our beautiful wild environment as a powerful education and self-development medium.

Individuals of all ages, schools, colleges and universities, sporting teams and companies avail of our courses and events.
