While staying at Blackwater Castle for a few days for my wedding, some of my guests and I were able to squeeze in a quick zip lining adventure. The zip lining isn't extravagant, just one trip over the river and another back, but it's also a beautiful area and incredibly inexpensive. You can add other activities to flesh out an... More

Had an awesome time when we went with work, the staff was almost more fun than the activities and it seems everyone, visitors and the people working there, had a really good time. Would love to come back anytime! Thanks a mill!

Brian and the lads are brilliant and made sure the day was very safe & enjoyable. To cater for 33 people is not easy but they did a damn good job of it, and from history... More

We, a team of 33 people, had a brilliant time in Blackwater Outdoor Activities. The very experienced team in Blackwater Outdoor Activities looked after us very well, we spent the whole day including lunch (which was plenty and delicious). The place is very structured and clean. The advisors would encourage you to try it at least but will not put... More

We recently had a team-building day organised here and the guys did a great job putting together a list of exciting activities, taking in consideration our team's preferences! We had a great time, discovering our own limits and enjoying some adrenalin! We were well fed and looked after, they made sure nobody gets bored. Would definitely recommend it and would... More

It was absolutely brilliant and the guys who ran the activities could not have been more kind, patient or helpful. Absolutely brilliant.
