Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series

Ireland will host one of the six stops of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2017 at Poll Na Péist (Serpent’s Lair) on Inis Mór on 24th June. The world’s elite male and female cliff divers will return for the third time to the rugged west coast of Ireland for a dramatic competition opener. Standing 27m./ 90 ft. (men) and 21m. / 70 ft. (women) in height, divers will reach speeds more than 85km/h before meeting the wild Atlantic below. Three seconds of acrobatic free fall at venues ranging from natural wonders and visual feasts to historic sites and unknown grounds will push the boundaries of this rapidly progressing sport again in 2017.
