Mayo Pride — The Outdoor Adventure Edition

Needs a location

Wet & Wild are not an official partner of, or collaborator with Mayo Pride this year, events are not being organised through meetup so please check their website for more info and updates on all events listed below.

This year's Mayo Pride encourages adventure with lots of activities taking place outdoors in the beautiful surroundings of Westport. Daytime events include Ride With Pride, a gay cycle along the stunning Greenway, The Big Gay Hike up Croagh Patrick, and Sea Pride swimming complete with Pride soundtrack supplied by Mr Whippy Soundsystem. Pride goers will also be able to unwind with Queer Yoga, and of course there’s a Pride Cruise around the gorgeous Clew Bay.

By night, Mayo Pride presents a post-parade party extravaganza featuring Ireland's favourite queer club night and firm festival favourite Mother on Saturday night. Friday’s nighttime antics will include a Queer Cabaret featuring drag queens extraordinaire Candy Warhol, Dirt Bird, Beryl, Daria Day, and the all-singing, all-dancing comedy duo Floozy & Bluesy, as well as Bitches Be Crazy & Conor Behan (The George & 2FM) spinning tunes to keep you dancing late into the night.

The main parade will be led by Mayo native and Irish national treasure Panti Bliss.

Rock climbing (outdoors like on real rock!) beginners and intermediates, 2 days

2 days of summer rock climbing, sign up for just one day or both days. This weekend is aimed at Wet & Wild members that have done some climbing already, either indoor or outdoor, harness and helmets supplied, if possible bring your own climbing shoes. You don't need any ropework setting up experience but you should have at least done an introductory session at an indoor climbing wall.
The Saturday's climbing will be based in Co Wicklow at Carrick Mountain
and Sundays climbing at the Rocklands in Wexford town, If you intend doing both days climbing contact me for accommodation options.
Both locations have some great climbing routes of all grades.
We will be mostly top roping with possibly some introduction to lead climbing for those approaching that level.

Any questions just contact Nghia or Diarmuid for more info

End of July Glendalough Spink Trail

Needs a location

Celebrating the end of July with another Glendalough Hike! Hopefully this time the wind and rain will hold off so we can get to the top.
Provisionally the hike will head off at around 12.00pm and finish up about 3.30pm, we will meet in the lower carpark, that is the first car park beside the visitor center. (provided there are no fallen trees again)
You will need to bring comfortable walking footwear, lunch, a drink and a good outdoor jacket. The hike is a complete loop of the upper lake on gravel track and timber sleepers , however if you feel like just doing half or even a quarter this is easily done. This is a hike/walk for all levels of ability.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there to kick off the new year of Wet and Wild events
