Went here with the lads from work, and thoroughly enjoyed the day. We did the paintball, zip lining and the river tubing. The craic was good especially when the organisers joined in with the ball hopping. Would recommend it to anyone, teams, schools, work colleagues etc. Ps the bbq was really good afterwards
