Happy Spring!!


April has been a crazy busy month for us in terms of events, awards and getting prepared for the season ahead, but it has surely catapulted us into the season with energy and optimism.


We were finalists in numerous awards and came out with the Award for "Most Creative Website" at the Micro Business Awards in Dungarvan. We were also nominated for and were finalist in the TOYP Awards in Galway.

It is so wonderful as a micro business to be recognised in these awards, as at times it can feel a little isolating being an entrepreneur, so getting together with other like minded people to celebrate our hard work and achievements gives a fantastic boost to morale and keeps us striving to do our best.

The win also gave us great exposure with PR in local papers and radio stations, which is a great way of letting people know what we do and adding credibility to the business and brand.


In addition, we have been using the build up to Spring/ Summer to do some fundraising as we like to do throughout the year. Our target is to raise €1000 through the sale of raffle tickets with the prize being out 30m Garden Zip-Line and Brake worth over €300! We are VERY close to the target with just a couple of tickets left, so please feel free to grab one or two in the SHOP section while you can, and help us meet our target :)


Last year we used a portion of the profits for the year to purchase and donate Christmas presents to a childrens charity here in Galway, as a way of giving back and Paying It Forward. Each year we will do what we can to help make life easier for others through various events and fundraisers and welcome your suggestions. It is important as a business that we do what's in our power to increase the quality of life for those around us, it is also important as individuals to so the same, We encourage random acts of kindness. One small good deed could change another persons day/ week/ month, so don't hold back on doing good and being kind, it doesn't have to cost a cent <3


Have a lovely Week :)

Have a look at the pieces below and check out our brilliant jingle on the home page :)

Assuming a level course, let’s start at the end… The Finish Point (FP) should be at least 2ft(.61m)

higher than the tallest rider. Let’s assume our rider is 5ft(1.52m), so the FP should be 7ft(2.13m)

off of the ground. The Start Point (SP) height needs to be higher of course to create a safe Drop. A

slope of 8% is safe. So if we take our Course Length measurement, let’s assume 80ft(24.4m), and

multiply it by our 8% slope we get our Drop of 6.4ft(1.95m). Our SP height is therefore the FP

height plus the Drop (7 + 6.4 = 13.4ft or 2.13 + 1.95 = 4.08m)).


Full info is included in the Instructions that come with your zipline, you can also check these out on our Instructions page.
