It wa an over all good experience for me and my student I was with whom has autism but there one lady with glasses who works there was very abrupt and rude to my young student. She wasn’t helpful and basically felt like we were unwelcome by her presence. Her sister showed us around the place and into some of the display planes was a great host and very friendly but her sister left a bad taste in my mouth unfort especially for kids with SEN

Brilliant place for families and tour groups. There's also different camps throughout the year, where children of all ages get to see flight simulator in operation, from inside.

It's lovely to visit somewhere where the people give the tour and demonstrations have so much passion for the subject. Our visit to the Air Atlantic Ventures was brilliant. The kids got to dress up as pilots and aircraft personnel and we had almost an hour in the simulators. We then had a tour of the museum with many actual plane cockpits and memorabilia. Then a tour of the planes outside. There were seven of us from 8 to adult and all had fun.

What a surprise we had in store at Atlantic Air Adventures. I’d booked an hour on the flight simulator for my dad who is afraid of flying and who at nearly 80 is unlikely to take to skies himself. I shared this information in advance when I booked online and the team couldn’t have made him feel more special. He flew the 737-800 with Harry at the helm who was brilliant with Dad and allowed him the experience of a lifetime & certainly one he has been talking about constantly since we did it. Taking off from Shannon to Singapore and landing in New York with a sneaky flyover the Statue of Liberty was amazing. Jane and team are brilliant, we enjoyed our time so much. They offer a range of options, we did an hour’s flight which was €150 but they offer lots of other options. The building may not look much from the outside but if you’re into planes this experience is unmissable!!!!

8 children (age range 8 - 12)plus 4 adults visited today and had a ball. Very educational in a fun and fascinating way. Kids hung on our wonderful guides every word. So worth the 2 and a half hour round trip. I'm ex cabin crew and I learned a lot today. Many "so that's why they do that" moments. Loads of wonderful photo opportunities. Very generous and informative staff. Great day out that's suitable for all age groups / boys and girls. Kids loved wearing the jumpsuit and being able to see all the aircrafts outside. Flight simulator is incredible. Highlight was inflating the lifevest. We all jumped! Definitely worth a visit and would be great destination for school tours. Very reasonably priced.( plus local Supermacs do deal for groups visiting- €4 kids meal.) We finished the day off with trip to viewing gallery in Shannon Airport which is just down the road to see the real thing in action. Thanks again to the wonderful staff there today.

Celebrated our son’s 15th birthday here and it exceeded our expectations. Plenty of information generously given by the pilot and hands on flying experience made for a great day. Highly recommended.

Visited on a Saturday morning with our three young boys whilst waiting for our flight home and what a fantastic little place. The people who work their are so passionate about what they do was lovely to see. From the start they were great with the children letting them dress as pilots and our youngest a captain where they could then play in a plane. It is very small but we spent a few hours here and the children didn’t want to leave. We will be back when we return to Shannon.

I went there on the 31 of August, i have to admit , the museum is small, but they have some very interesting planes and a lot of things to see. I had the chance to have a very kindly Lady , to explain me the exposition. I have felt that, she is very passionnate and has an impressive knowledge. If you wanna see some grat planes and simulator , just go. We need museum like this one to keep this knowledge.

We dropped in here on a wet morning while holidaying in the area for a few days. My wife and I and two kids 7 and 4 really enjoyed the experience. We were welcomed at the reception counter and made feel very welcome. Eddie the owner gave us a guided tour of the museum, he was very informative and interesting and you could listen to his stories for ages. He recalled his own career as a Senior Aviation Engineer in the RAF.
Our guys got the opportunity to put on real junior aviation suits and we had plenty of time for photos.
Great place for anyone with and interest in the Aviation industry.
Thanks for sharing with us.
