Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, in which participants use a Global Positioning System  (GPS) receiver  or mobile device and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called “geocaches” or “caches”, anywhere in the world.  A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook  (with a pen or pencil). The geocacher enters the date they found it and signs it with their established code name. After signing the log, the cache must be placed back exactly where the person found it. In order to take part you must log on to  https://www.geocaching.com/play  , to create an account which is free to sign up to.

The Ballyhoura area is home to approximately 30 caches or more. The beautiful scenery and friendly people add to the wonderful experience you are sure to have when you visit. Once you have set up an account each member of the geocaching community gets a username. You can then message other “Geocachers” through this. For any information you might have our local Geocacher can be contacted through his name which is Ballyhoura1
