VIP exclusive Hot Air Balloon Flights for 4 passengers Sunrise (WEEKDAYS only Monday to Friday excluding Bank Holidays and subject to availability.)


Escape to a world of unexpected surprises and adventure as you drift effortlessly over the most beautiful Irish landscape. Fly with us and make your dreams come true. Alternatively, give the gift of flight to somebody close to you!


There is little to compare to the experience. Hot Air Balloon Flights take place either shortly after sunrise, or a couple of hours before sunset, when conditions are generally at their calmest. Due to the conditions of the weather and direction of the wind, take-off and landing sites can be different each day. Once we have met you at our meeting point, we will travel to the launch site, if it is not at the meeting point.


Once we arrive at the launch site, we unload the balloon and carry out a safety briefing with all the passengers. Due to the conditions of the weather and direction of the wind, take-off and landing sites will be different each day. Your pilot will decide these locations and inform you before take-off. The adventure begins by inflating the balloon using a giant portable fan. Once the balloon starts to take shape the burner is lit, heating the air inside. The hot air inside is lighter than the cool air outside and this is what creates the lift and why it is called a Hot Air Balloon. Due to the conditions of the weather and direction of the wind, take-off and landing sites will be different each day. Your pilot will decide these locations and inform you before take-off.


Once you have landed, you’ll get the chance to assist in packing up the deflated balloon. Once the balloon has been inflated, the passengers are invited to climb into the basket. Getting into the basket is a little like crossing a field gate! When the balloon has positive lift, two safety lines are removed and the ground slowly sinks away. We are then on our way - destination unknown! Don't forget that balloons travel with the wind, so there is little opportunity to steer the balloons, other than by maybe finding a different wind direction at different altitudes.


Our retrieve crew follows the balloon, in radio contact, and aim to be at the landing field when the balloon lands, around an hour later. The crew will then contact the landowner to gain permission to recover the balloon from their land. Due to the conditions of the weather and direction of the wind, take-off and landing sites will be different each day. Your pilot will decide these locations and inform you before take-off. Once you have landed, you’ll get the chance to assist in packing up the deflated balloon.

  • Location

    Irish Balloon Flights, Trim, Co. Meath

  • Group/Spectators

    The minimum age is 8 years of age. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, all passengers must be able to see over the edge of the basket and be able to clearly follow safety instructions. There is no upward age limit providing that each passenger has sufficient mobility to be able to get into and out of the basket. It is akin to crossing a field gate, where there are a couple of steps in the side of the basket to facilitate entry. Passengers must also be able to comfortably stand for a minimum period of 90 minutes. Unfortunately, we are unable to facilitate wheelchair users on our flights. We are also unable to fly anyone who is pregnant or suffering from certain medical conditions.

  • Duration

    We ask passengers to allow 3 to 3.5 hours for the whole experience. This includes the preparation and packing away time, plus travel time back to the meeting location following the flight (plus the time for the champagne toast once returned back to the meeting point!). The flight itself is around one hour in the air, give or take a few minutes either way.

  • Dress Code

    We recommend that you dress in layers. It is generally no colder in the air than it is on the ground on any given flight, so there is definitely no need to overdress on warm days. There are some items of clothing that are NOT permitted on a flight. These include shorts, skirts or cut-off trousers, open-toed sandals/pumps etc. We can sometimes land in a field that contains thistles or nettles so we ask passengers to wear sensible clothing in that environment. Shoes must be flat with no heels. Also, we strongly recommend waterproof footwear for morning flights, when there can be substantial dew on the grass.

  • Weather

    Hot Air Ballooning does require light wind conditions with no rain. If flights are postponed due to bad weather, the passengers simply reschedule back in for another convenient date. We are governed by the Civil Aviation Authority in terms of weather limitations and have to abide to these limits for safety reasons.

  • Other information

    People who are not very good with heights can also participate in this activity. A flight in a Hot Air Balloon is completely different to being at the top of a building, tower or cliff etc. When taking off, it is as though the ground is slowly receding away and, in all our years of flying balloons, we have never had a single person who advised that they could not handle the experience of flying in the balloon. Our Chief Pilot feels uneasy climbing onto the roof of a bungalow, yet happily flies over the Alps by balloon at up to 20,000 feet!!

Indoor Golf: So much fun!

Indoor Golf is addicting. Great value considering how cold it is outside and what a trek it is to actually get to a driving range. Will be back often. So much fun! Read More...

There's a reason why these guys have 5 stars. Everything about the experience was stellar. They were all so friendly and personal, professional and although they see a lot of different people every day, they still made us feel like we were individually important. Read More...
