Super afternoon, great for the kids. Staff need to be strict for safety but they do it in a friendly way that doesn’t interfere with enjoying the place. If you’re going to Farran more than a handful of times in the year the Coillte parking...More

We visited zipit on bank holiday Monday so it was quite busy but we were kitted out, put through a safety induction and on our way in quick time. The courses get progressively harder and really get you used to the height so we felt...More

Only managed to do two courses in my time there. It was way too busy and the staff seemed overwhelmed and really didn't want to be there. After the tutorial we decided to skip the green course as it seemed very easy. There was a...More
