Because they're there
What is it?
The Boreen Run is a way of getting to know your 4×4 vehicle and what it can do and while you’re doing it, see some of the fantastic scenery that is in county Wicklow. You may own a 4×4 but may not have driven it other than in and out to work or on the school run. Now you can have someone with experience driving off road in Ireland and Africa, lead you on some of the best boreens in Wicklow and even spend an hour in an off road area to see what you can do (or just watch others to start with).

To participate in a Boreen Run you need to....

  • Use the booking form here on this website followed by paying a fee of €50.00 using PayPal.
  • Have a 4x4 vehicle.
  • Be a competent driver.

Well organised with a really professional guy who explored lots of different places like this and not only in Ireland but Africa so it’s well worth trying especially we went to the places in Wicklow Mountains that I have never seen before, no damage to the car and fantastic experience — Svetlana
