The oldest outdoor shop in Ireland, Great Outdoors opened its doors in 1976 and ever since has become an adventuring institution, providing the proper gear as well as advice, no matter what your sport, be it skiing or surfing.
Since their inception as the Great Outdoors, they have welcomed many adventurers through our doors. People venturing off to the North Pole, Everest and other hard to reach places have all stocked up here before setting off. Others diving in the Red Sea or the Glacial Fjords of Iceland have been equipped through ourselves. Students on J1 visas or Australian work permits have all been looked after before heading off on their travels.
No matter how big your adventure, it’s still your adventure and the Great Outdoors have always strive to make that adventure the best possible one. They hope that anyone who enjoys “the Outdoor Life” will find much to interest them both in their shop and on their website.
Having built their reputation on their great brand ranges and the experienced and qualified staff that we employ, all of the staff are outdoors’ people and have as much interest in adventure as the customers do. Plus – their foot guru Neil can assess your needs and help find your perfect fit for whichever activity tickle your fancy (foot!).
