A group of us spent a great 3 hours down here recently. We did archery, zip-line and the leap of faith. Very enjoyable activities, friendly and helpful staff, and set in the beautiful surrounds of an old quarry. Highly recommended.

Very beautiful activity centre based in old quarry. We did the ziplining (a great experience, even for me, being afraid of heights) and the kayaking. The kayaking was super, and we did lots of fun activities. Our instructors where top notch, and very patient. It was really a fantastic day out!

Ballyhass is as the kids say "a cool place" and they are constantly adding tot he facilities. the lakes for fishing, the walkways, the big fields for football and the zip line and climbing line. when there for a camp the instructors are very nice and friendly.

It was a great but wet day in Ballyhaas we were met by a great team only happy to help some novice with no fly fishing experience. Tom was excellent at helping us learn the basics and then move on, When we passed our lesson and move on it showed us how much we had learned and how much we could learn in the future.

Lovely activity centre based around an old quarry: the kids (young and not so young!) enjoyed the ziplining across the lake and kayaking afterwards in the clean, clear lake. The older members ofthe party would have appreciated some "free" time kayaking as well as the games and races organised by the team.
It is a little out of the way but worth the journey. There is absolutely no shelter or shade for those of us waiting around for participants however; on one of the hottest days of the year this was problematic, particularly for my elderly mother. Take parasols etc, or be prepared to wait in the car with air con on - or heating in colder weather.
A café of some kind would be a good idea. However, lots of activities were available, the setting was lovely and the crew running it and working with the participants were wonderful! Definitely worth a visit.
