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.

Despite water levels being fairly low at the end of the summer, we were still able to have fund canoeing down the river and 7 sets of different size rapids.

We had a group of varying abilities and they ensured that all were catered for with us all learning some new skills and having fun in the process.

We went river tubing in ballymahon as the river was too shallow to go whitewater rafting. We had great fun bobbing up and down the river on little inflatables,shame there was no where to get changed although our instructor was fab and great fun! Definitely recommend to those who don't mind changing in front of others and want a little something out of the ordinary.

We recently went white water rafting for my sons 11th birthday party , we brought 10 kids down the river Inny in Ballymahon , The whole event was very well organised and ran by James and Richard , they even had 2 guys in canoes for safety .. The kids really enjoyed themselves , If you want to have a exciting party for your kids this is the place to go .

I organized a whitewater rafting session with some friends and colleagues from work and it couldn't have been better, even the weather cooperated!
We traveled to Ballymahon for our first experience in whitewater rafting, after a quick change into our wetsuits we went to our starting point. There, the instructors gave us the basic safety/"operating" instructions and off we went down the river Inny.
We got to experience calm water, also the exciting whitewater parts of the river, there was a lot of splashing and a bit of jumping/diving as well.
The instructors made the whole experience safe and exciting but most of all very fun!
We all recommend giving rafting a go with Outdoor Discovery.
Thank you lads! :)

I organised my sisters hen recently and went with outdoor discovery for the activity. I was so happy with my decision. The hen was in athlone so they obliged us by having the activity in the IT. This saved us a journey and made it easier for people to attend. We began with short games where we had to work together to solve different dilemmas that Richard and Hugh put us in. Then after that we began the main activity - archery tag. It was as intensive as you wanted to make it. There was varying ages and abilities in our group and everyone really enjoyed it. It became fierce competitive in the end! Couldn't recommend the company more. They were a pleasure to deal with.

I brought a birthday party of 16 boys and girls, aged from 6 to 13 to play Archery tag. Under the supervision of Alex and Richard they had a brilliant time. All played to their own ability and all really enjoyed. The Instructors were organised and involved. I would highly recommend trying this or any activity with Outdoor discovery. :)

Hi Trisha, We had great fun with your bithday party group. It was great to see how the young lads got right into the thick of it and competed evenly with the older girls. The cake was delicious by the way :) Thanks for the review. Regards Alex

I did some activities with the company as part of a hen party. Archery tag was the main activity, but there were some short games before this. It was great fun. Alex and Richard ( I think) were really relaxed and fun and helpful. I would recommend it as a hen party activity - nothing particularly physically demanding so everyone can get involved no matter what age or level of fitness; but still works up an appetite for the evening ahead; and lets everyone get to know each other.
Also they took great photos and shared them with us.

Hi Eve, I'm delighted that you enjoyed it. The icebreakers and the Archery tag are a firm favourite with lots of groups and as you said is suitable for any level of fitness. Thank you for you review. Regards Alex
