Outdoor fun building inner confidence, true friendships and a passion for the outdoors

Whether it’s part of a Transition Year programme, fulfilment of the adventure section of An Gaisce, class-bonding experience, or an end of year class tour, we have something to suit all requirements at Primary and Secondary level.

Located on the banks of Lough Bofin on the River Shannon, we have been accommodating school adventure tours and activity trips for many years. Our full day multi-activity trips for Primary and Secondary level are renowned and our overnight activity and canoe-camping island trip is perfect for TY and Gaisce groups.

All activities are led by experienced instructors, all of whom have Level 3 First-Aid, Child Protection, and Garda Clearance. All activities are fully insured.

The centre itself is a modern facility with toilets, changing rooms complete with showers, indoor recreation room, and fully equipped kitchen with facilities for teachers to make refreshments.

  • A huge thank you to all the staff. The children had a magical day full of adventure and fun from the start to finish. The glorious sunshine and the picturesque scenery here topped it off! The staff ensured every child was fitted out comfortably and safely in water gear. Extra kindness was shown to those children needing extra help. I’ve just witnessed two boys, who arrived here this morning, ‘afraid of the water’, splashing and kayaking with the rest of the group – in their element! Super to see! Plenty of smiles all round. Hopefully we’ll get to return here on another school tour. It is very well organised and relaxed for the teachers.

Experience the thrill, adventure, fun and achievement of outdoor team activities

Get soaked from head to toe. Get covered in mud. Tie yourself in knots. Sound like fun?
It sure is! Feel the thrill of leaping off a pier. Or compete with your classmates in Tug-o-War.

Or face the challenge of the Fun Assault Course. Or have a great laugh on the slippery, slidey mud slope. Whatever you’re down for, we’re up for showing you a good time!
