What an incredible experience, beautiful landscapes, fantastic people and fun and enjoyable activities. I attended with several work colleagues to test our skills and participate in challenges outside of our comfort zone, all highly enjoyable (From building rafts, climbing high wires, swimming in the lakes, enjoying boat rides on the stunning lake and running through mud bogs!) Personally I thought... More

This company does a great job showing you a fun time. They have a high ropes course, kayaks, a giant swing, and terrific instructors.

We took 4 kids for tubing recently and had a mediocre experience. There was a lot of standing around waiting for the guide and to get suited up. The guide when he did appear was less than enthusiastic. The tubing started 45 minutes late and ended 35 mins early all for a fairly rich price tag. Kids were yelled at... More

We did Kayaking & Gorge walking - neither of these were too physically challenging - we were a family 2 adults a teen 14, and a child 10. We also were given the opportunity to do the cliff jump - 2 of us did it but from a lower point than the platform - highly recommend that you do this... More

My daughter did the summer camp at killary a and loved it. It was her 4th time going. She stayed for 5 nights and had activities each day. She did the bungee jump, but her favourite activities are the Ringo rides and the turf challenge. Accommodation is basic but clean. She is going again next year and is considering taking... More

We dropped off our 15 year old son here for an afternoon of kayaking and gorge walking. We'd done a family gorge walk here about 4 years ago and had a great time so were pretty confident he'd have a great time again. He wasn't disappointed. Kayaking was new to him, but he quickly got the hang of it and... More

The early morning drive over to Leenane from Galway was lovely, a good bit of head-space to get rid of thoughts of the working week. Upon arrival the staff were really helpful at reception - even coming out front to give me directions to where the clay shooting would take place (across the road). I popped down there and received... More

Dropped two young teens off here for a day of fun. They had a fantastic time and I would consider the cost of €49 for a full days activities with lunch included to be excellent value for money. The centre is very well run and professional and we were confident the boys were in good hands. It was the highlight... More

Spent a fantastic day at Killary Adventure Centre with a group of 30, (mostly children!) of mixed ages and mixed experience levels. The whole day was a very positive one for our group, right from the helpfull booking team, to the friendly reception staff and especially so with the activity instructors who made the day fun and safe and left...
