    Son's first time trying clay shooting
    Had a great time. Instruction was excellent. First time my son had fired a gun and he enjoyed it that much he can't wait to go back again. Even with the rain the cover allowed us to remove our rain jackets and get comfortable.

    Great family activity for teens & adult children (and parents).
    Great experience. Alan the instructor was brilliant. Very patient and encouraging. It’s a popular spot and can see why. Restaurant on site with very friendly service and tasty food, bar, coffee, etc. Kids have to be 14 & our youngest just turned 14 so was delighted to do something so grown up with his big brothers. Will come back to try the rifle shooting. We did Clay pigeon this time.

    Fantastic Day Out: Rifle and Clay Pigeon Shooting at Courtlough
    We recently visited Courtlough Shooting Grounds and had an amazing experience. The rifle and clay pigeon shooting were particularly enjoyable. The instructors were knowledgeable and ensured a safe environment, making it a great place for both beginners and experienced shooters. The facilities were top-notch, and the staff were friendly and helpful, enhancing the overall experience. I highly recommend Courtlough Shooting Grounds to anyone looking for a fun and exciting shooting experience.

    Cannot recommend this range highly enough
    Booked time with an instructor. Was blown away by this young man's knowledge and approach to teaching. Can't remember his name, funky tattoos and piercings. Best training session I've had. Daniel

    Had a 'blast' in Courtlough!
    My family & I (2 teens & 2 adults) did a clay 25 session this w/e gone. We had Pierce as our instructor and it was HIM that made the whole experience so enjoyable. Not being ' shooting people' Pierce very quickly put us at our ease while all the time being ultra professional. The competitive juices began to flow quickly between the family and Pierce encouraged that banter. The hour flew but we are still buzzing from the event. We are raving to one and all about our time in Courtlough. Well done Pierce and Team. Hope to see ye soon. Conor & family, Skerries

Myself and my sister went clay shooting here for the first time and we had an absolute blast. Our instructor was Mickey and he was such a gentleman. Shooting over 65 years he has an abundance of skill and technique to help you along the way. He made us feel very at ease in a male dominated environment.I couldn't recommend this as a fun weekend activity or party activity more and Mickey for the win 🥳.

We had a great time. It was my son's birthday present and it was just the two of us. We were made to feel very welcome and the experience was amazing. The adrenaline flowed and of course my son beat me at clay shooting and the rifle range. I will definitely return. I help to run a youth group and it is something I would put on the to do list with them. The only thing...the time went too fast.

Booked a rifle and a shotgun experience for 2 people. Started the day with Donal, who was our shotgun instructor. Well, what can I say. An amazing person, great sense of humour and great instructor. Cant thank him enough for a wonderful experience. Followed on to the rifle, our instructor was Charlie, who was also an incredible! Wonderful way to spend the day and around great people! Will be coming back 100%!

Got this as a birthday gift and it was fantastic. Went for the Shotgun and Rifle shooting great craic with the instructor whilst still being shown how to do it properly. Would highly recommend even if you haven’t tried it before. Little outside Dublin but well worth it.

Gerry Kerns is an excellent instructor. I have had many lessons and he is by far one of the best. He tailors lessons based on YOUR skills and abilities not in a "this is how you do it" way. I came away with some great tips that I will incorporate in my shooting for years to come. James was also a delight to deal with as a puller.

We did the clay pidgin shooting with Michael! It was a fantastic experience. He was really kind hearted and really made the experience worthwhile and enjoyable. We will definitely be returning! Even with no experience he was very informative on how to get the best shoot!
