Located on the borders of Galway and Mayo, Delphi Resort is surrounded by rugged beauty and captivating wilderness..
The Delphi Tri-Event is a fun, challenging endurance event hosted by Delphi Resort. The event is designed as a taster event for aspiring tri-athletes, or as a fun, multi-sport challenge in its own right.
