Inishbofin Adventures are fun, charity sports events based on the beautiful Irish island of Inishbofin, 7 miles off the Connemara coast.
Our events have already raised more than €200,000 for charity.
Our first Adventure began back in 2013 when we collaborated with Ailbhe and Eoin O’Malley, the organisers of BIKE-2-BOFIN. The following year we started the Inishbofin Half Marathon & 10K, and in 2019 we added our swim event.
Happily, these events also bring in much needed custom for local island businesses, especially during quiet shoulder periods. So its win, win for everyone.
It is important to us that our island home benefits from Inishbofin Adventures, therefore we encourage people to make a weekend of it, and see all this stunning island has to offer. Inishbofin is a small, friendly island, with beautiful safe sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, quiet roads and stunning scenery. It has 3 hotels, a pub, hostel, several B&Bs and self- catering houses. Many of our participants return every year. Once you get the ‘Bofin bug you’ll be hooked!
Our events are not-for-profit, with all proceeds going to Down Syndrome Galway http://downsyndromegalway.ie/ to provide vital speech and language, education and social services for over 100 families in Galway City and county.
We are grateful for LEADER funding which enabled us to purchase equipment and set up our own website to promote our events further.
Many thanks also to our Sponsors.
