Nordic Fitness Ireland provide tuition in the use of Nordic Poles to improve all round fitness. Classes include, Nordic Walking, Nordic Running, Nordic Fit, Rehabilitation & Fitness Walks. We also run a Community Walking programme. Please note that that due to Corona Virus some of our programmes are currently suspended.

From our base at Burkedale House in Dysert O’Dea near Corofin, Nordic Fitness Ireland provide both residential and non-residential courses, walksNordic Walking experiences & holidays.

Our Nordic Walking experiences provide the opportunity to embrace the fabulous Clare countryside whilst learning a new skill. Relax in the garden of Burkedale House and enjoy tea and cakes or lunch on our half and one day experiences. Make a weekend of it and stay in our luxury self-catering accommodation

Our instructors are fully qualified in Fitness Walking and hold YMCA Level 2 certificates. Joanne, a former nurse, leads our rehabilitation programmes and Tony, an accomplish mountaineer and ultra runner, leads our running & mountain programme.



This is an unsettling time for all of us and we have been closely following the government Coronavirus announcements. Now that a ‘roadmap’ for return of activities has been announced by the government we are delighted to be planing our future programmes. As the ‘roadmap’  can be reversed at any time we will only be taking bookings for classes and walks 1 week ahead. ALL classes must be booked in advance as numbers will be strictly limited to adhere to the regulations regarding social distancing. Classes and walks are on a first come basis. Additional classes will be added as required. We have suspended our Nordic Poles 1, Nordic Poles 2 and Community Walking Programmes until further notice as the number of participants involved would make social distancing difficult. People can still learn to Nordic Walk through our Nordic Walking Experiences or private lessons

We are conscious that the parks and usual places we walk are likely to be very busy and therefore it will be difficult to ensure social distancing and your safety is our priority. For this reason we have decided to conduct all our classes from our base at Burkedale House in Dysert O’Dea. All of our walks will start from here also. We have found some beautiful new trails which we are sure you will all enjoy. We will continue our online Nordic Fit classes on Tuesday evenings for people who have attended one of Nordic Walking training programmes

If you plan on joining us on a regular basis we would suggest you have your own poles. Poles can be hired for a small fee which is to cover the cost of the additional cleaning that is required. We have poles available for purchase.
