The IPC has the biggest planes, the best facilities and the best vibe out of any DZ in Ireland. It's also the only DZ that really caters for fun jumpers. It has the largest community and jumpers of all levels so finding jumpers at the same level as you is easy.

The Wingsuit, Freefly and 4 Way disciplines are really well catered for and everyone is willing to help you learn. The load organizers (Tony, Conor, Ronan etc.) do an awful lot for the club and since I started jumping here have seen a remarkable improvement in the skill levels and sense of community as a result.

I didn't learn to skydive at this DZ but it is now my new home DZ.

This is also the only DZ in Ireland (apart from the Geese) that isn't just a shed in a field. They give equal preference to fun jumpers and tandems.

If you visit Ireland or are doing your first skydive, this is the place to be.

Just got my A licence from this club via the AFF route. This is a fantastic parachute club. It is located about an hour from Dublin, very convenient. The instructors are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. The facilities are great as is the Porter. If you are trying to decide which club to go for head to the IPC. You won't regret it.

Booked in for AFF course during the summer.
They were happy to take the money but not so keen to get me up. The course,such as it was, was totally disorganised with no one having a clue what was going on. Their manifest system was a shambles. Nobody had the remotest idea of a weather forecast.

It was a 3 to 4 hour drive for me to get there and to sit around all day with not the slightest idea whether I was going to jump or not,despite good weather, was soul destroying. And as for the grumpy woman at the manifest desk!!

As a student avoid the place, the weather is too unreliable to waste your money. Go to Spain.

Learnt to jump abroad and live abroad so have only been to Irish Parachute club a few times. Its a rocking place with a great vibe, cool/mad people and loads of people to jump with along with really experienced guys who will help you out any time. The weather can suck at times but they go when there is any opportunity, if you are in Ireland go for a jump, the Irish parachute club rocks!

From the minute I got there I felt welcomed. The instructors there were very helpful, professional and always kept me Informed of what was going on. Also, The vibe there was awesome, people are very friendly and there's always someone to jump with. This is a DZ I recommend if you are in the area and definitely would consider going back.
