A guide for accessibility

Ireland is renowned for its natural beauty, incredible landscapes, and breathtaking coastlines. Given the nature and locations of the Irish landscape, which is often rugged and remote, accessing the great outdoors and engaging in outdoor pursuits can present many challenges, particularly for people who may have a range of disabilities.

Irish Wheelchair Association’s Sports Department in conjunction with Sport Ireland developed the concept of designing and delivering outdoor access guidelines that could be used by various organisations, that provide and manage facilities within the Great Outdoors. The Guidelines are funded by the Dormant Accounts funding stream 2017.
