The Irish Centre of Funambulism was founded in Galway in 2018. It is Ireland’s first and only training and participation centre for funambulism.

The Centre runs trainings in funambulism, the circus art of tightwire walking with a balancing pole. Beginners are encouraged and welcome to come try out this skill!

Funambulism is a fun way to practise your balance, mindfulness and self-awareness. Starting on slacklines 30cm off the ground, participants learn to use the balancing pole and build toward higher wires, with the emphasis on building technique and practising focus. Suitable for all body types, ages and fitness levels, funambulism is an accessible art-form suited to anyone with the enthusiasm to try it.
