Definitely recommend to those who don't mind changing in front of others and want a little... More

I organized a whitewater rafting session with some friends and colleagues from work and it couldn't have been better, even the weather cooperated! We traveled to Ballymahon for our first experience in whitewater rafting, after a quick change into our wetsuits we went to our starting point. There, the instructors gave us the basic safety/"operating" instructions and off we went... More

I organised my sisters hen recently and went with outdoor discovery for the activity. I was so happy with my decision. The hen was in athlone so they obliged us by having the activity in the IT. This saved us a journey and made it easier for people to attend. We began with short games where we had to work... More

I brought a birthday party of 16 boys and girls, aged from 6 to 13 to play Archery tag. Under the supervision of Alex and Richard they had a brilliant time. All played to their own ability and all really enjoyed. The Instructors were organised and involved. I would highly recommend trying this or any activity with Outdoor discovery. :)

Hi Trisha, We had great fun with your bithday party group. It was great to see how the young lads got right into the thick of it and competed evenly with the older girls. The cake was delicious by the way :) Thanks for the review. Regards Alex More

I did some activities with the company as part of a hen party. Archery tag was the main activity, but there were some short games before this. It was great fun. Alex and Richard ( I think) were really relaxed and fun and helpful. I would recommend it as a hen party activity - nothing particularly physically demanding so everyone... More
