Take part in an event

Take part in one of our upcoming events, join Team Barretstown or take part in a community led event organised on behalf of Barretstown. We promise it'll be serious fun!

Lots of Serious Fun events on in 2022!

There are so many events that you can take part in for Barretstown.

Barretstown organises a number of events each year such as the Dublin Mountains Challenge, Golf Outing and Corporate Quiz  – more information coming soon.

You can also join Team Barretstown and take part in events like the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon and Dublin Marathon. Alternatively you can take part in events that are organised for Barretstown but not by us, such as the Ian Daly Swim A Mile With A Smile. Many of these events are going ahead in 2022, so you can still get involved!

At Barretstown, we need your help to raise over €6 million each year. One of the founding principles of Barretstown is that campers and their families come here because of a need, rather than an ability to pay. Everything, including accommodation, food and medical assistance are provided at no cost to the family.

We do not receive on-going funding from the Serious Fun Network – so we rely almost entirely on donations and the fundraising efforts of individuals, community groups and corporate supporters. That’s why event’s and fundraising is so important.

Get involved – it will be serious fun!


We ALSO have a fun new resource to help you fundraise for us

virtually, while we’re all socially-distancing!
