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

We had my sister's hen here last Saturday and I really can't rate the place high enough. We were all slightly hungover when we arrived and the 2 guys working with us couldn't have been nicer to us and they had us harnessed in no time. We went zip lining and giant swing. A few of the girls were very... More

However the Senior Instructor did not introduce himself and lacked the confidence needed to put our... More
