I have been a frequent visitor to Ballyhass lakes since 2015. However I always felt uneasy about the dated system provided for looking after ones belongings. There are NO lockers or any secure place available while you are either in the water or participating in another activity. In this day and age I would expect a higher standard from a facility that is so well established and recognised. (Instead you are depending entirely on the honesty of the other patrons and left with no option but to leave your belongings at risk of theft). On the 18th of July my son and his friends visited the Aqua park. He left all of his clothes in a new bag which included an expensive dryrobe, in the designated open shelving area provided. (Fortunately no phone or money in the bag). Total value of belongings approximately 130 euro. However after the 1 hour session his bag was taken. Immediately the staff were informed who took note of this. We had planned to go for something to eat on our return journey home. As my son did not bring an additional set of clothes, he was upset that he had no option but to stay in his wetsuit and due to this we did not go to a restaurant, We felt the day had been ruined. I contacted the manager following day and I asked if there would be any form of compensation offered for his bag been taken. In response I got belongings are left at ones own risk and customer be aware. In 2022 I believe at the very least a secure and safe place to be made available for belongings which would provide people with peace of mind. Due to this experience it is unlikely we will be returning.

We were a family group of 14. We pre-booked about a week in advance. Luckily we had a great week of hot weather (24°+) so the water was very refreshing. The kids in our group ranged from 6-16 with the majority not being able to swim. You are supplied with wetsuits and a life vest so there is little chance of drowning. The time we had on the obstacle course was just about enough. It was very well marshalled with staff members on the obstacle course and more floating on surfboards nearby. The whole experience was very well managed from start to finish. My only dilemma was the exit from the lake. It was very murky and difficult to get out even for adults. I feel this area could be improved. Luckily I had water shoes on me but one of our group didn't. When he attempted to exit the lake he stood on something sharp in the water. This caused a large gash on the sole of his foot which needed first aid followed by a visit to a chemist later that day for more dressings and treatment. This is why I'm only giving ⭐⭐⭐⭐. Otherwise a good day.

A great experience. We were a 6th yr class of about x20 and all had a great time. Staff went above an beyond to be helpful, even when the kitchen was closed after 6pm and one of the group forgot to order, the staff put something together. Excellent all round experience and great surroundings.
