I went with my TY group and found the experience only okay. I stayed overnight. The rooms were lovely, and the beds extremely comfortable. The manager however was slightly condescending and at times patronising. The activities were amazing though, I had so much fun! It was really well organised. It was just the treatment we received from the manager that... More

On Saturday 11/06/2016 I went cliff diving with Huib, it was an amazing experience, for a person who's always been afraid of water and not the best swimmer I was made... More

I had an incredible time here. From rock climbing to ALMOST jumping off the free fall (don't judge me, I simply couldn't do it...lol). Their surfing lesson was nothing I Experience before. They were very friendly and would answer any question you may have. Great people!!!

I took a surf lesson with my 11 & 12 year olds! Staff couldn't have been more helpful and engaging. Great facility, well designed, appropriate equipment all the gear required is part of the package, well maintained facility, piping hot showers! Great for beginners to experts. They will cater to your needs!

We had a group of 95 students stay at Donegal Adventure Centre over 3 nights. The level of care and interest taken by the Centre staff was second to none, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere throughout. The quality and range of activities kept the students engaged and fully occupied over the 3 days. I would highly recommend this Centre... More

Myself and 3 of my friends took a surf lesson over the weekend and it was brilliant fun! The guides were a great laugh and very encouraging! Everything was so well organised. Between the laughs and the water, it was the perfect hangover cure! Definitely recommend!

We booked three children aged 10 and 13 in here for a full day summer camp. They done surfing in the morning and kayaking in the afternoon, it cost 40 euro per child and was worth it as they really enjoyed it. They spoke very highly of there instructor Mark and they would love to return here. I would recommend
