What are Rachel's Pop Up Tours?

Rachel’s Irish Adventures focuses on private, tailor-made Ireland tours to take you off the beaten path. But since we don’t like to put limits on ideas, we always keep a space for projects that are different from our usual business. This might entail collaborations with sport clubs, individuals with a vision or other companies.

We will use this space to keep you updated about special tour offers and unique adventure occasions.



The Ballina Treasure Hunt returns for July & August 2023

The Ballina Treasure Hunt is a self-guided outdoor discovery game in Belleek woods.

We set up the Ballina Treasure Hunt as a special offer in the summer season 2021 and decided to bring it back in July & August 2023. You can take this self-guided adventure on at almost any time that suits you. Get in touch now to make your booking!

Are you ready to solve the mysteries of Belleek woods?

You could call it an outdoor escape ‘room’, a treasure hunt or a discovery tour. The Ballina Treasure Hunt is a fun activity for couples, families and small groups who love to solve riddles, follow clues and explore new places.
