Balloon Flight Locations
We fly from areas outside Dublin airspace (within 1 hour of the City)
Due to Dublin’s Controlled Airspace, we fly outside the greater Dublin area (typically the Boyne Valley area, due to unsuitable terrain in Wicklow and a high number of racehorse studs in Kildare). We ensure that our meeting location will be under an hour’s drive from the City. We will agree a meeting location when your flight is due and we bring you to the launch site, and return you back to the meeting place for the celebratory champagne following the flight (after all, it’s a tradition!)
We endeavour to always launch from the specified location, however, due to operational restrictions, we reserve the right to move the launch site at short notice or up to the time of the flight. Operational restrictions may vary e.g. wind direction (which could bring us towards controlled airspace or other restricted areas. We also require cut fields (short grass) to launch from and therefore may have to move until hay or silage is cut from our regular launch fields or until farmers have moved stock. For this reason we have several launch sites in the border areas of Co. Dublin.
