Families & Friends


YOUR HAPPY PLACE STARTS HERE

Over 2½ hours, you’ll enjoy a range of activities in the natural beauty of Lough Bofin and its surrounds. So, why not round up your friends and family and bring them to Shannon River Adventure
— they’ll thank you for it!

On water…on land…in the air (well, kind of — when you scale the Climbing Wall 😜).

You’ll have a blast jumping from a pier, showing off your paddling skills, firing at a target (not your family), scrambling up the wall, and getting covered in mud on the thrilling mudslide.

What’s the best way to skyrocket your energy and positivity?

An outdoorsy active fun day out with the family! And there’s no better location for activities than the River Shannon! So set your squad goal and get ready for an amazing family day out!

  • Excellent day out.  Our group of 2 adults and 6 kids (age 9 – 14) had a fantastic time and enjoyed every second. Our instructor was very helpful, flexible, kind and encouraging to all the kids which made their day. He kindly offered to let us have a second go in the kayaks at the end of our session. There is extra space set up as changing areas and the coffee in the tuck shop was lovely. I would highly recommend this Centre for activities as we had a great time.

  • Great experience and really good fun.  We were a party of 1 adult & 4 children. The activities were really well organised and our guide Rebecca was very helpful (she even gave some of the boys a helping tow back in the kayak). The mud slide is great craic and the whole set up is geared towards fun. Safety is always to the fore.
