“Amazing Adventure weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

A group of 19 of stayed at Eclipse last weekend and everyone has an absolute blast. On arrival the accomodation was FAR superior to anything we had previously imagined, with a fully fitted kitchen, beautiful living room with TV, music player etc. As many people commented, "This is better than my own house!". Athos welcomed us with open arms and a warm house which was a great start to the weekend.
On saturday we did a grand total of 4 activities; orienteering, the assault course, archery (some people did horse riding) and mud surfing. Our group was split in 2 which gave an edge of competitiveness to the day, and we were asked to come up with funny team names and team dances turned out to be a hilarious start to the day.
All of the Eclipse team were helpful, friendly and great fun to be around ensuring there wasn't a dull moment throughout the day. I would reccomend EVERYONE going here to do the assualt course...it really was one of the most fun activities have ever done! You're musles will ache the next day but it's totally worth it! Mud surfing is also an activity that, if you don't mind getting muddle, is brilliant fun... watching your mates struggling to run after a surf board being pulled by a quad is a pretty hilarious sight to behold!!
I really can't say enough good things about this place. everyone working here will go out of their way to ensure you have an amazing stay...whether you are a group of friends looking for a fun weekend away, a stag or hen party, or you are a tourist looking to for an Irish adventure..THIS is the place for you! You won't regret it!
I will definitely be back.

“What a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

It's is a 5 star destination for families or companies looking for a retreat to team build. The activities are customized to the goals of each group, making each event a unique adventure. Playing hard, pushing comfort zones and thoroughly enjoying victory is the focus. The Eclipse Centre has a wonderful team that coordinates the fun and is there to cheer you on or push you one more inch. The holiday houses are stylish and comfortable. The stable manager and the horses are a dream to work with and both can accommodate all levels of experience. If all that isn't enough.... The setting is absolutely priceless and will make even the toughest challenge a joy to complete. Beautiful. Thumbs up!

“Unique Horsemanship & Vaulting Experience at Eclipse Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

My daughter came to Pony Camp in July for a week, she had such a fantastic time she came again in August!

The Eclipse is such a unique experience, she rode in the mornings and after lunch took part in two different outdoor adventure activities each day. She had so much fun, made new friends and took away wonderful memories she will always treasure.

She is hooked on the centre and on horses now! She has begun 'The Natural Horsemanship' Course, comes once a week, every week without fail! and is learning to Vault also.

She hasn't stopped talking about the Eclipse, now all her friends are coming!!

“This was a great adventure for me and my family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

I took my family to Eclipse this summer in June. I booked a whole day with several activities. We started very early with hunting. This was something tailored especially for male members of the family. It was a great fun. We did not shoot anything not because there was nothing to shoot at but because it was our first time and we basically sucked. Still though it was a great fun and big adventure. Next we went on horse riding with female members of the family. It was too an enjoyable time. Great area for horse trekking with astonishing views. Thirdly we decided to do some archery. Again this was the first time for all of us so it was a lot of fun but still great experience. Next we took our chances on mud surfing which too turned out to be enormously enjoyable time. If you have never done it before than you definitely must try it as this is something you will never forget. In the end we all ended up covered in mud from heads to toes but luckily there was great spa and sauna prepared for us already.
All the attractions were well prepared and thought off. The stuff was very helpful, easygoing and we could tell straight away that they had put a lot of effort to make this day unforgettable experience for us. We are definitely planning to come back to Eclipse in the near future to have some more fun trying some other activities they have to offer and doing mud surfing and horse riding again for sure.
It is really hard to describe all this experience just in a couple of sentences. You really need to go and experience it your self and you can believe me you will not regret it. We very often come back to this day in our day to day activities and talk about all the fun we had and we plan our next visit.

“school trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2012

I would like to thank all the staff at the ' Eclipse Centre', Killarney for the fantastic day my class and the teachers alike ,enjoyed on their recent school trip. We all had such a brilliant day, unique and joyful in our experience, and now the children hold fond, fun memories of their last school trip as they now move on to Secondary School.
The centre excelled in all aspects and I have no hesitation in recommending the centre to my colleagues..
I look forward to bringing my future class next Summer,
Every success ,
