Based on the shores of Strangford Lough; just 45 minutes from Belfast. Come to Clearsky Adventure Centre for a wide range of activities on offer to everyone a€" from the young to the young at heart. The centre was also used extensively for the filming of Game of Thrones. As you drive down through the estate you soon realise why the HBO film location scouts chose here; the centres medieval walls and castle clock tower, the beautiful surrounding landscapes and far-reaching views across the water; it was the perfect place to create the fantasy 'Winterfell' - home of the Stark family Adventure days and courses for individuals to large groups. Canoeing, Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting, Kayaking, Sea Kayaking, Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Coasteering, Raft Build and Racing, Archery, Crate Stacking and more. Experience Clearsky &€" inspiration, fun and enjoyment for everyone.

Had a fantastic time with clear sky group archery. As a family ranging from 12 to early 70s it was the perfect activity for everyone and our instructor made sure it was fun and inclusive. Everyone had a great time and we will definitely be back for some cycle hire and kayaking

The speedboat Trip was grant...Even the rain maid the Sunset more beautyful. And the mixture of speeding and enjoying the sea/ landscape was perfect: for father AND child. To get warm afterwards try the Cuan - Or eat there before!!!

Travelled from Glasgow to Belfast to visit Castle Ward for a Game of Thrones tour including biking and archery. Staff were excellent, everyone seemed to know who we were and when we needed to be places and the guys were really friendly with good banter. There was a small mix up with times that made the end of our day... More

I booked a two hour Full Moon Paddle Power (beginners) kayaking session with Clearsky in June. I had a lot of fun, despite the fact that as the slowest member of our small group I struggled at times to keep up to speed with the others. Our instructor Johnny was supportive and encouraging, and made sure I was never left... More

We rented mountain bikes from the guys at Clearsky and did the Game of Thrones tour around the estate. The trails are well kept and not too challenging for people not used to trail biking. We also did the archery in the court yard with Ruairi for 50 mins. He showed us how they put everything together for filming Game... More
