We stayed in one of the luxury belle tents for a friends birthday. Would highly recommend, very comfortable and warm with stove, had a brilliant time with activities, staff are very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to do something a bit different.

I always maintain that the staff make or break the holiday. The friendly helpful staff made our trip happy and memorable from start to finish. 24 hour cover on site, fun activities and excellent facilities. Great value for money. The glamping pods are very comfortable and warm. A heater is provided. Fantastic for a family break. I will be back.

We had a really great afternoon out in canoes and kayaks. Our instructor was excellent, really patient with wee ones and big ones alike. Great safety equipment for everyone meant we all just enjoyed the fun. Brilliant day out especially for teens.

I visited the Carrowmena Activity Centre on 15th June 16, an "away day" with my colleagues from the Ulster Farmers Union. The morning was an indoors seminar where we were updated on UFU matters by our HQ team. This was followed by an indoor BBQ.
