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.

We were at Ballyhass Coachford for my daughters 13th birthday party. There was 13 in the group & they did the all day adventure day pass. They did high Nets, archery, kayaking & the the aquapark. Incredible value for this pass!!! A huge Thank you to 2 of the instructors/guides - Chris & Ben. They were fantastic talking through the activities and reassuring one of the girls so that she went ahead & tried the activity. I was so impressed by everything at Ballyhass! And it was a great experience for the girls. We'll be back soon as I'd love to have a go too!

We stayed in the village last weekend for 2 nights with our cub group. Couldn't fault it one bit. Everything was there for us, bbq area, chillout room, down to the very knife and fork. Josie was on call if we needed anything, and was a pleasure to deal with. The cubs were kept busy all weekend with all the different activities.
I would highly recommend The Village for any group to stay

Absolutely incredible facilities. The bunkhouse accommodation was so clever and comfortable. Think camping but with bunkbeds contained in a lovely wooden hut. Outside a lovely covered area with tables and benches. Tepe tent full of games. Bbq kitchen area was outstanding. Onsite pizza takeaway and lovely coffee shop. Activities were incredible

Don't let the weather stop you going, there's a lovely micro-climate here and the wetsuits keep you warm in the aqua park. Our kids also did the zipline and absolutely loved it.

The staff here are outstanding and so kind and patient with the kids. They genuinely seem happy in their work and double, triple checked everything in terms of safety.

We will definitely be back and hope to stay in a bunkhouse next time and sample the tasty looking pizza.

Great place with loads to do rain or sunshine.
Big group of us and we stayed in bunkhouse
Overall great experience, people fab and so helpful, so clean and facilities were above expectations
Only consideration I'd advise for the accommodation is to add a few hooks to let clothes dry both inside and outside.
Would def recommend

I recently went to Ballyhass with my 4 children and whilst there my sons New Zealand Rugby jersey was stolen. He put it in his bag and placed the bag on the shelf along with all the other bags and came back to find it gone. We alerted the staff who also alerted the manager. They promised us they would follow up on it and call us as soon as they knew something. But no phone call came. My son had to travel home with no top on. I emailed.and the response I got was contact the garda station if I felt it was stolen.!!! The age calibre of staff was very young, as was the manager. I didn’t even get an apology or a please come back again. We go to Ballyhass every summer but I was very disappointed with the customer service. I wouldn’t leave any property unattended on any shelf. I would advise anyone to make sure someone can watch the bags at all times and be aware that there are now only two lifeguards on duty around the aqua park as opposed to 4 on all the previous years we attended. Only one lifeguard on the water and one trying to watch the whole inflatable alone. This was a good place to bring teens in particular and I used recommend it to many, however I won’t recommend it anymore.!!!

Ballyhass bunkhouse village. We stayed here in July 2023. It was the perfect stay cation for family. The ballyhass adventure centre has days of activity to entertain 6 year olds to any age. We booked for 2 nights and ended up booking a third. We could easily have stayed a week. The ballyhass bunkhouse village is state of the art. Cooking facilities for any type of meal, freezer and fridge space, food storage space, all utensils, pots, cutlery all top class. Consistan Piping hot water in kitchen, toilets and showers. Staff are extremely friendly. Booking activities is easy and flexible. Absolutely top class holiday spot highly recommended. All water activities are very well supervised and water safety gear is Again top Quality. The tipi tent is very spacious, plenty of functions, eating, playing, relaxing and mingling. Perfect.. The put door seating area is perfect for a camp fire.
