Kerry is not always blessed with good weather even in the summer so this attraction for water sports is very useful. My daughter and friends have used it on 5 or so occasions over the last few years and love it every time.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our center. You " hit the nail on the head " as the saying goes with your comments on the weather here in Kerry.

We went out Kayaking with our guide 'little' Jamie, who was a great laugh and a real nice genuine guy. Spotted some seals, spotted some Donkeys and Kayaked around a rich man's island. After a relaxing cruise, we got real on the water trampoline and did some flips into the water! Spot on adventure.

We visited on the recommendation of a waitress locally. My 9 year old was bored so we drove from Bantry to the venue. Beautiful scenery along the way. Abi was well looked after by Niall who was v kind to her (and us as we took a pedal boat out). Thanks Niall

The team of outdoor instructors met and immediately sorted our girl guides, they were professional and fun, exactly what youd want at an outdoor activities centre, the guides did watersports, kayaking, water trampoline. Banana boating, crazy golf, team games. Archery and the obstacle course. Excellent event, excellent staff and facilities. Thanks, we will be back!
