We went here on two occasions. The children did archery - had so much fun they came back to do it again another day. On the second day we also did some kayaking - great fun. Everyone we met working there was very nice and helpful.

I had an amazing trip here with my transition year class. Great way to kick off the year and it was a great bonding experience. The staff were amazing, Robbie the manager had the place well run and the leaders Ger, Fiona, Dave and Joey were great too. Ger and Fiona had nearly 24 hours entertaining us for 3 days and they did not lose their entusiasum. The activities were great craic from 5 hour long hikes to kayaks along the coast, there was also sailing, water trampalining, camping, night orientiering, banana boating and more. Food was really good. Had some bant and hope to go back next year. I would definitly recommend especially for a group of teens.

Had an excellent time here for my transition year adventure trip! :) Had great craic with all the brilliant leaders Ger, Robbie, Fiona, Dave and Joey :D They were all so kind and pushed us to do stuff we might have been otherwise afraid to do which made me so happy,, only got to stay 3 nights and that was not enough! It was way too fun to leave behind! Would've loved to do more water trampolineing, banana boating, kayaking, sailing, land activities and raft building! Would recommend this place to anyone especially teenagers. Thanks so much to all the leaders, miss ye so much i wanna cry :( <3

Thank you for your recent review of our centre and staff. We are delighted you enjoyed your visit to us. As you probably noticed the vast majority of our customers are the young energetic type and families. Childrens camps are indeed very popular, however in case you had not noticed we do have a family package which makes all activities available to adults also and can be done as a family group. ( Archery session, cruise on "Star of Kenmare" & kayaking to watertrampoline ). We do also look after groups such as youth clubs, corporates and all types of sports clubs for day visits and indeed overnights.
