We've stopped for 2 days at the Adventure Center during our trip "cruising" Ireland to allow our two boys (12 & 14) have fun. We actually all did. The Center proposes all sorts of activities (in and ouside water), such as rock climbing, zip line, kayaking, etc. We have not tried the famous Turf Challange as it seemed quite hard... More

Had a great time kayaking and gorge walking. Didn't try the cafe but the food looked good and the views were great. We booked the camping but the weather was too bad. Our guide Fionn was great. Thanks Fionn for the tow and hope you got the tip we left for you in reception!

This is a well-run place with a great staff. It is family friendly and has many activities. We were with Jess, who was awesome. This is a great place to try some of these activities, even if you are a little nervous at first. The staff here really tries to make you comfortable. Do not forget insect repellent!

We booked 2 half days with Killary and also stayed overnight in the centre. What a fantastic experience! We had all our activities pre-booked but at the last minute, one member of our group dropped out and I also injured myself which meant I couldn't take part in the Turf Challenge. The staff were amazing - we weren't charged for... More
