    well theres 2 adventure sports place in Cork that i know of. one of them is the Kinsale outdoor education centre and the other is Oysterhaven. There both good, i think the kinsale one is probably cheaper cuz is partly funded by an goverment org.

    If youre having serious withdrawl symptoms you could throw yourself down a hill in Currabinny wood on a mountain bike. I've done it a couple of times and most of the time come out without injury.

    If anyone from Coillte is reading, the above is a pack of lies. :D

    Currabinny wood is, funnily enough, in Currabinny. Currabinny is near Ringaskiddy (the car ferry place). If you head up the back road towards Carrigaline theres a turn off to the left (beyond Carbon Chemicals and across from Novartis). Follow that road and u'll eventually see signs for the wood.

    Now having introduced the idea of downhill mountain biking I feel I should point out that I dont think its actually allowed in the wood (but whos gonna stop ya). Theres a few... lets say interesting paths you can take. There arent really all that many routes as most of the forest is overgrown. Normally (and saying that I havent been down there for ages) I take the 'beaten path'.

    Must get my damn bike fixed..
