Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a fantastic day out as usual, our annual visit to the lagoon! Changing rooms and toliets spotless, staff amazing and very helpful. We did the waterpark which requires a good level of fitness but that's clearly started in the terms and conditions,very detailed safety talk, lifeguards on the ball as per usual. Overall a fantastic day out , we will most definitely be back, looking forward to next year already.
Highly recommend.

Booked for family of 4 as part of our holiday in West Cork and Paul the manager was very accommodating when we had a problem with the time we booked. We had great fun on the inflatables…kids loved the slide and the hamster wheel! There are lovely warm showers after too. Staff were great. We had previously been as a few times and and we will definitely be back again…it doesn’t get old!

My family attended Rosscarbery lagoon aquapark today and had nothing short of a terrible experience. Upon  checking in at the front desk it was obvious from looking around that the place was ran by teenagers who had absolutely no interest in being there. The safety talk if one could credit it with that title was very brief and rushed and there were no safety checks of life jackets. My husband and children went onto the aquapark and I viewed the activity from the bridge. There was one member of staff on the aquapark who spent his time on his mobile phone with no consideration for the safety or supervision of anybody partaking in activities, the only time he got up was to leave the aquapark and another teen staff member took over his position and yet again no supervision.

There were many kids and adults who struggled to get back onto the inflatables having fallen into the water and they had to be assisted by others on the aquapark, no assistance whatsoever  was provided  by the teen staff members.

So many people returned to the shore with blood streaming from lacerations to the feet from the velcro on the inflatables there was no medical assistance on the lagoon, I dread to think what would happen if serious medical attention was required.
My son came off the transfer boat, crying. I discovered that the teen who was operating the boat had accidentally hit him on the back of his head with his elbow whilst starting the boat (boat was overcrowded all crammed in) and did not even acknowledge it, an acknowledgement and apology would not have gone amiss here.

Showers and  changing rooms are both tiny and filthy. The water in the bay was also filthy.

Overall, safety, supervision/management and cleanliness of Rosscarbery lagoon is absolutely shocking. This facility needs to take a look at Ballyhass activity centre to see how activities should be ran and staffed, we have attended recently and there were 3 members of staff on the aquapark supervising and assisting and one member of staff circling the waterpark on a paddleboard to ensure safety of participants

I left Rosscarbery lagoon with serious safety concerns and most certainly will not be returning.

Kids ages 8-12 enjoyed it, adult thought it was good. The only negative is that groups tend to take over a session too much. There was a group of about 10 teens and our kids couldn’t get on certain things (e.g. rotator) as the group took it over for most of the session. Lifeguard should break this kind of hoarding up. The place is run by very young staff (teens), punctual and polite but I do wonder how they would cope if a serious incident occurred. Overall 4 happy people, but not racing back

Kids and hubbie had a ball. Wetsuits optional, all wore life jackets and everyone seemed to enjoy. A little boat brings you from the pier to the feature in the lagoon. Life guard supervised also. Great spot. Would return
