We booked this as a day out for our family of five including three boys aged 12,11 and 9. I think kids take to this quicker than the adults! Personally I'm not great with heights but I was fine on the green and orange circuits, it was white that challenged me (and my fear!) and I was mortified that I had to be rescued by the very calm, capable and pleasant Aaron. I think my main tip for anyone who has poor circulation like me would be to layer up and bring warm gloves as my numb hands proved my undoing in the end. Its colder than you'd think up there in the trees! The kids absolutely loved it, on face value it seems expensive but actually well worth it when you consider you get four hours of wholesome outdoor entertainment out of it. Would definitely go back. They do sell basic snacks on site but a picnic would be a good idea as there are benches dotted around the location.

Hi Eleanor, thanks for the review and well done on pushing your limits even if Aaron had to come to your rescue, nothing like facing a challenge, especially when the 'kids' are watching. Yes, at first we may seem expensive but we work hard to provide the value over the time you are with us, thanks for commenting on this. Hope to see you again soon.

Exceptional fun. Well organised, safe and helpful guides. Second time here. Enjoyed it last year and came back again. We were early and CJ allowed us to join an earlier group as other had not turned up on time. Guides are genuinely enthusiastic. I used to be a tour guide so i know how bored you can get giving the same speech over and over so i admire them for it.

I will never be a candidate for Ireland's fittest family but was able for orange and white routes. Kids flew through them of course. A good workout and proud of myself that i got over the wobbly crosses.

As you can only carry a bum bag, i would make sure your phone is charged. Can be nippy at that height so i would bring an extra layer. Make sure good grips on runners and they are tied tight. A shoe fell off a girl on a zipwire there.

CJ was also very kind when our taxi did not turn up.

We really enjoyed Zipit. It is very well run and all the staff were really nice. The instruction we received before going up was excellent. The tone of supervision is good, staff are keeping an eye without interfering.
My only issue was that we didn't get to start until after 5.45 ( although being there on time) , as a consequence when it came to 8pm the kids were not allowed to go back up, due to closing time. While I understand the rationale, they only got 2 and a quarter hours instead of three and they were disappointed.

Hi Fiona, thanks for the review and observations on our staff. I'm sorry that the kids were disappointed at the end of their session. Our session time has been reduced because of COVID and includes the time spent at the Safety Brief so not everyone is getting to finish unfortunately. We hope to increase to 4 hours again soon. Thanks again.

I work with St Michael's House with young adults with Autism.
3 of our guys went last week and it was the most amazing experience.
The staff was amazing especially our instructor Gavin who treated the guys with such respect and had the craic with them.
The guys absolutely loved it smiled the whole way through, one of the guys actually drew spongebob ziplining during art.
It was a great sense of achievement for our guys, learning new skills and more importantly they had fun.
We will defiently be back thank you so much , especially Gavin for going above and beyond with your kindness we all really appreciate it.

Dropped over here for an afternoon out while camping nearby. Was a day out for two adults and a 12 and 9 year old.

Venue has 5 high wire courses of increasing difficulty laid out through the trees in the forest. With COVID, there were significantly smaller groups making for a much easier movement around the courses. The 12 year old could go on all bar the hardest course.

Kids absolutely loved the high wires, climbing and zip-lining around the trees. The three hours absolutely flew. Great value for the afternoon entertainment. Highly recommend a visit for anyone nearby.

My friends & I made a trip up to Zipit and enjoyed every minute of it. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, we had a full safety brief beforehand and there was always someone on hand to answer any concerns we had. I would 10/10 recommend Zipit & a special shout to Eoin for taking care of us for the evening. We will be back :)

Took the kids here today (7 and 13) they had a fantastic time 7 year old was a bit sad that he could not do more, he had to do the same route all the time. 13 year old was able to do alot more, but they both enjoyed themselves very very much. The people working there were very helpful and friendly. The toilets leave alot to desired. But all in all a fantastic day out.

Hi Jennifer, thanks for the review and delighted you enjoyed yourselves. As you know we have age and height limits on all circuits to ensure kids do not find themselves in an unsafe situation. The toilets are an eco friendly solution to being in the middle of a forest with no services and I agree they do not meet usual home standards but do not interfere with the environment either. All in all, I hope you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing you again. All the best.

Went with my daughter and we had a great time.
Staff friendly and professional.
Our thanks to JP who provided a few tips and guidance after the initial training. Also being quick off the mark to help when one of us got into difficulties.
Also recommend doing the package that includes the ziplines at end, nice way to relax after the physical side of courses.
Glad we went and will definitely do it again sometime.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Zipit! Everyone was friendly, especially the instructor Andrew. He had a big smile on his face and helped me around courses. I'd highly recommend going and if you do get a chance, meet Andrew :)

Went with my nephews and sister, had the most enjoyable day, the instructors were extremely friendly and made us feel very comfortable in our ability to tackle the courses. The obstacles were challenging in places but such good fun, great craic and great value for money. Would highly recommend
