Killary Adventure Bursary Scheme

Killary Adventure Company has launched a new annual bursary scheme to support applicants in their attempts to push the boundaries of adventure worldwide.

The bursary package will include cash funding of €1000 towards supplies, as well as a week- long workshop on preparation and logistics from experienced adventurers for those attempting to achieve a new adventure goal, and special consideration will be given to those expeditions that are challenging and different!

The bursary scheme hopes to highlight the opportunities that exist in the outdoors for young and old and promote the achievements of those who decide to push themselves to the limit. With the introduction of the bursary scheme, Killary Adventure Company continues to build its reputation as a central 'adventure base' in the West of Ireland and aims to provide inspiration and support to grow the outdoor adventure community in the region and throughout the country.

The bursary is not limited to any particular sport but rather is designed to further a sense of adventure and to support ‘thinking big’ allowing people to achieve something novel and exciting. The grant funds are to be used directly towards the costs of the expedition.

Potential expeditions should apply at least 4 months in advance of their proposed date of departure, unless exceptional circumstances apply. Applicants must be over 18 to apply.

Please note: Expeditions charging people to take part will not be considered.

You should submit your application to or post to Shane Young, Killary Adventure Company, Leenane, Co. Galway
