Ireland is full of beautiful, low hills, high mountains, streams, lakes, bog and boreens. It is a place to explore, and being prepared can give you the satisfaction that no matter what the weather, you will enjoy your day in comfort. At Basecamp, we know Ireland and what is needed for a stroll in Wicklow, a hike in Kerry, a 2 week long camping trip, or a quick ascent up a rock face in the Burren.
We can guide you on your way, where ever you are heading, giving practical information for all budgets. Our helfpul staff have been everywhere in Ireland, Europe, the Americas and Nepal. Our people have climbed Everest, Denali, Mt Blanc and big wall in America. But most importantly, every mountain and peak in Ireland has seen one of us. Whether hiking them, running up and down them or climbing them.
We have stayed for weeks in campsites in Ireland, the good the bad and the not so bad. We have eaten and supped pints in most towns in the country. Our staff can tell you which is the best route and which to avoid. If you need a guide, we can help you out there too. Just let us know what you need and when.
We stock some of the best brands available. Mammut, Marmot, Haglofs, Black Diamond, Inov8, Vaude, Paramo and many more. Just check out website for all thats in store. The shop itself has 3 floors of hiking, running, camping and climbing gear and a comfortable library area to learn more, at your leisure.
We are located in the centre of the city, beside the country's largest department store, Arnotts. We are close to O'Connell Street and to the Halfpenny Bridge, please see our map. Why not come in and have a look, or email us with any queries you may have. We look forward to welcoming you.
