Long walks away from traffic, and remains of follies built by previous owners. Walks clearly sign-posted.

I love my kids but once in while I like to kick back and watch them do something frenetic while I sip a cup of tea. The kids did the outdoor course and some wall climbing. Their rosy red cheeks and laughter told me they had a great time long before they launched into a full description of the fun... More

We had a quick stop here to view the facilities and check out the courses available at the centre. We have plans to return at a later stage. Staff very friendly and helpful - showing us around the building. We had morning coffee which was excellent. Restaurant very clean and would return when next in the area. The views from... More

Went here on mountain bike February 2013, paid our fee to a member of staff who told us virtually nothing about what facilities we could use, was only by pure accident that we discovered a 2nd mountain bike track (saw bikes crossing the road)as we were finishing, maybe he was having a bad day but we were paying customers who...

I've been driving past this place for years without ever giving it much attention. I thought I knew what they had to offer without visiting. Then last week I gave it a go. AMAZED doesn't cover it. The facilities were clean, modern, perfectly purpose built. Every detail though of from skills pool and graded climbing walls to wet rooms and... More

Although I had no previous knowledge of Tollymore or its wonderful Outdoor Center. I was driving through the area looking for a trailhead to the trail I intended to walk last Easter Sunday (2012). I saw the center from the road and stopped to turn in and was hit by a very fast car on the "wrong" side of the... More

This was the best experience of my life, I went bouldering although the water was freezing. It was good fun and I would do it again, the low ropes course was challenging!

I bought my husband a weekend course "Mountain Skills 1" for Christmas and bought two places because I thought that he wouldn't want to go alone. If I am honest I was dreading it - I thought it would be full of action man types and that there would be nothing worse that being on a mountain in Northern Ireland... More

We came up for the weekend for a meeting and expecting a hostel type place, came prepared. The weather was terrible, the building unbelievably nice. All designed for people who would be doing outdoor activities, but without loosing the quality. The place and staff were welcoming, the room was clean, warm and very nice. Bedding and Towels were provided and... More
