Our service provides foster placements for children in care. Our group of 65 people included adult carers, foster parents and children up to 18. Some more confident then others! Finding activities that can accommodate and maintain the interest of such groups can be difficult. Credit is due to Brian and his team for creating a really enjoyable day of exciting... More

A million thanks to Brian Mc Carthy and all the staff at Blackwater Outdoor Activities, they hosted our end of season party to wrap up a great year for the Fermoy RFC U14 squad. Everything was excellent, from the freshly prepared food on arrival to the expert and friendly staff that guided us around the beautiful grounds. All the lads... More

Did the ziplining and obstacle course with a group of 10 girls- great fun. Superb views over the blackwater. Our two guides were really helpful, putting the more nervy of the group at ease and good craic. A great way to spend an afternoon, well recommended.

We went as a group around 15 persons. We did some activities like Giant Swing , Zip-Line/Aerial Adventure and River Tubing. The staff who were responsible of our group were very nice and friendly and every single person enjoyed the activities. Our package was including lunch at the end of the day which was very tasty. I would recommend this... More

I went here on a 30th Birthday two weeks ago. We did the zip line, paint balling and archery. It was great craic, with great facilities (changing, showers, etc.) and very well organised. I will definitely be heading back again to try some more of their activities.

I joined my tri club members here for our end of season do (dinner afterwards). I knew the ziplining was going to be up high but the giant swing scared the hell out of me. My fellow members knew that I was raised in a Christian denomination when the swing got going! The two instructors were very nice and the... More
