Glencullen Adventure Park (The GAP)
This fantastic bike park is situated in the Dublin mountains and only 20 minutes from Dublin city centre.
The GAP opened in 2017 and has become the top spot for children, teenagers, and adults alike.
They offer a variety of trails and activities involving all-terrain bike rides. The tracks vary in length and difficulty, and feature different surface types and technical obstacles including two blue runs, six red runs, seven black runs, and a pro-line and tech track, the Dual Slalom race track and one ‘pedal up’ track and the newly opened Skills area as well as 6 new trails recently completed and expected to open later this summer. They have a mountain bike shop onsite selling Full face helmets, Protective gear, and Mountain biking clothing onsite!
Visitors can have their own or rented bikes transported to the top of the track with an uplift vehicle and ride a chosen course.
(81 seats) A fleet of four branded Ford Transits equipped with custom-made trailers means a speedy lift to the top!
Twenty-nine full-suspension Nukeproof 2021 mountain bikes, each come with a full-face helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads included in the cost. Pedal pass booked separately.
For non-bikers and spectators, the scenic walking trails are free to use and lead to Ticknock and the Dublin Mountain Way. Along the route is the ancient ‘Giant’s Grave’, a 4000-year megalithic wedge tomb that is said to be the most intact of its kind.
The GAP kitchen (run by Gary Eustace & crew) provides a range of refreshments including barista coffees, fresh pastries/cakes, and hot food with renowned burgers so succulent you would have to see to believe.
