Climbing Wall


  TY Multi-Activity and Island Camping Trip

 “A huge thank you to Tommy, Lara, Eamon and all the Spanish helpers for a very enjoyable couple of days in Rooskey. We were all delighted to be returning to Rooskey over the Easter holidays. Overall, the trip is very well organised from being collected at Dromod train station to the collection of mobiles, the variety of activities, the overnight on the island. Students were kept busy throughout and enjoyed the time in the between to relax and have a cuppa!  The day is well structured with activities changing when needed. Students enjoyed all the games that took place e.g. blind climbing, tightrope walking etc.  The instructions given by Eamon and the other guides were well communicated and clear. The safety and welfare of students was paramount at all times e,g, not staying out too long in cold water. The guides were friendly and very helpful at all times. Students were encouraged to work in groups and it brought all together.  We appreciate greatly the opportunity to come to Rooskey and look forward to hopefully bringing groups down here again and maybe bringing the mobile climbing wall to Lucan next year. A huge thanks again”.

 Silver Gaisce Trip

 “We did 3 days, 2 nights here and, although we found it challenging at times, we thoroughly enjoyed the camping experience on the island. Sitting around the campfire, singing and playing games. I would genuinely recommend this experience”.

 (Kevin, Our Lady’s Templemore - April 2018)

“Tommy was great. He gave us what we want and always with a smile. The students loved the real experience of the outdoor life, with campfire songs, games, food. They catered for all needs. We will be back!”

 TY Multi-Activity and Island Camping Trip

 “Fantastic stay. Well supervised, well organised, fantastic staff”.

 (D. Sweeney, St. Oliver’s Post Primary, Oldcastle, Co. Meath - May 2018)

“Absolutely wonderful experience for the students and teachers. Really well organised and fantastic, enthusiastic instructors. Looking forward to coming back again soon!”

 (Fiona Mulver, St. Oliver’s Post Primary)

 “Excellent group experience. Perfect for the TY students. It takes them outside their comfort zone and challenges them to try new experiences. No phones in camp is a great idea”.

 (Caroline, St. Oliver’s Post Primary)

 Bronze Gaisce Trip

 "Tommy, Lara and crew were so welcoming and professional. There was a really positive vibe around the centre and on the walks. The walks and trip on the Shannon provided beautiful scenery and the natural beauty of the island was breath taking. Camping on Rabbit Island is a must do experience for anyone and definite highlight of our stay. The walks were well organised and it was obvious great thought, care and research was put into picking out the most scenic routes. We would highly recommend the centre to any school and can’t wait to go back!”

 TY Multi-Activity and Island Camping Trip

 “Booked in again for our TYs at Shannon River Adventure. We have large TY numbers – 100+ - and booking and arrangements were handled really well. Good activities during the day and the “back to nature” approach for the island camping is great. Tommy and his team know exactly what they’re doing, especially when it comes to putting teachers’ minds at rest regarding safety and good supervision”.    

 (John Barron, Templeoque College, Dublin - May 2017)

 Bronze Gaisce Trip

“Thank you very much for a very well organised, really enjoyable few days on our Gaisce trip for our boys! We did the cycling/camping journey and the boys loved it from start to finish. The boys cycled from Roscommon and then took part in land and water activities before canoeing to the island for great food, games and camp fire fun. Thanks again”

 "I can't recommend Shannon River Adventure enough. Malahide CS are coming here for the last 7 years. Staying on the island is always the highlight for all our students - it's a real unique experience. All our second years are looking forward to April already. Tommy and all his Staff look after us all so well".

 ( Dermot Washington, Malahide Community School - April 2016 )

 Bronze Gaisce Trip

 “We’ve been doing our Bronze Gaisce at Shannon River Adventure for several years. The canoe journey and island camp trip is a highlight in the students’ year. Mary and I love doing the trip every year too. It’s a great experience for the students and teachers alike.  Thanks to all the staff. See you next year”
