“Best week of my life!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Myself and about 40 other girls went to Blackwater for our adventure week away for 4th year. I have to say, it really was the best week of our lives. All the staff were so welcoming and they were so much fun. It was a week that will not be forgotten easily. The food was fab and the accommodation was brilliant. All the activities were so fun, and you knew that you would be in safe hands with the staff. No matter what age you are, you will have the time of your life there! I'd go back in a heart beat! Me and a few girls that went on the trip are hoping to return for a few days during the summer! I couldn't recommend the place highly enough!

Went here with a group of Scouts in the summer, great activities and very helpful staff. Will be using the activities again. The castle itself is also fantastic and it a great location.

“Bonding Hockey School Trip”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

Our school brought around 25 of us, as part of a hockey trip, and I have to say that this adventure centre was the highlight of my weekend. All of the staff were really helpful and we all thoroughly enjoyed our day here. There is something for everyone to do, from team bonding, to some family time! The activities that they have on offer are next to nothing. We got to go zip-lining and tubing, which very few of us had done before. overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, that each of us would most definitely do again! Thanks for everything, from all the Loreto Kilkenny girls.

“Fantastic hen party!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Myself and 20 other "hens" spent Saturday afternoon here zip-lining and attempting the high ropes. We had an azazing time from start to finish. The instructors were highly competent, good humoured and great craic. No request was turned down.
At €20 a head for over two hours activities this was great value for money. Luckily for Blackwater 16 of the 21 are teachers and will undoubtedly be returning with their classes in the near future!
I would highly recommend this for a hen/stag or day out for just some fun!
Thanks to all the fantastic instructors for making a great hen party!
