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

A few of the girls were very... More

Our family had a wedding in Blackwater castle last month, the service and value for the event was excellent. The wedding party arranged to do activities with the Blackwater Outdoor Activity Centre which turned out to be fine as all guests enjoyed the activities. However the Senior Instructor did not introduce himself and lacked the confidence needed to put our... More

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

We had our own room with tea and coffee making facilities (which came in handy after being in the cold river). We did... More
