Exhibitor profile

Ireland - a country famous for its rich heritage, fascinating culture, magnificent scenery and warm welcome.
The traditional welcome here in Gaelic (our native language) is 'Cead Mile Failte' which means, 'One Hundred Thousand Welcomes' and that is the kind of hospitality you will find in Ireland.

Donegal Adventure Centre (DAC) is Ireland's largest Surf and Outdoor Education Centre which has been delivering residential language, cultural and surf experiences to youths (8-18 years) from Europe, USA and Ireland since 2002.

Donegal is Ireland's second largest county and is renowned for its beauty, scenery and history. So much so, Donegal was recently named the 'Coolest Place On The Planet' by National Geographic in 2018. We are perfectly located along the Wild Atlantic Way on the west coast of Ireland. Surrounded by world-renowned beaches with excellent surfing, and we are home to the highest sea cliffs in Europe - Sliabh Liag.
