Well worth the trip from Galway, I've gone a few times with groups and its always really positive feedback. Knocked a star off for some of the younger staff giving out instead of asking kids to behave

Great outdoor in the water. The kids and all the teenagers had a great time. And there's a picnic table to stay for the adults that's not going to the water park. We all had a wonderful time.
