Killary Adventure Company was founded in 1981 and has grown to become Ireland's premier adventure company offering excitement, fun, quality accommodation and activities. Still a family business it never stands still and consistently offers an amazing experience of the outdoors to all its customers, aged 8 to 80! The accommodation base, located on the Wild Atlantic Way overlooking Killary Fjord, includes cosy en-suite rooms, bar, restaurant and recreation areas with views all the way to the Atlantic Ocean.

We had two separate student groups visit Killary and take part in the turf challenge this summer. They were talking about it for days and weeks afterwards, what a brilliant time they had! Everyone was a little anxious before they got started but once they had finished they all wanted to do it again. The staff are great and the... More

We took a 3 hour kayaking tour. Our guide, Bruce, was from New Zealand, but was very knowledgeable concerning the flora and fauna of the Killary Fjord. We saw a nest of newborn Seagulls. We also saw Oystercatchers, birds we were not familiar with. There is quite a mussel farming operation in the fjord. Bruce described the process from eggs... More

Have just returned from a hen weekend in the Killary Adventure Centre. A group of 14 girls who all had an absolute ball from the minute we arrived. We had the recreation room reserved for us on the Friday night where we had free reign. Arriving after a long drive to a warm fire and cosy atmosphere was great. Saturday... More

The journey from Galway to the centre is not to be underestimated and takes over an hour as the roads are old. However the scenery and experience at the centre is not to be missed. I found the staff... More
