“A total success - Unbelievable value.”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

I just organised a stag in Westport. There were 17 of us for the activities. We couldn't believe the selection that was available at the Adventure islands. The staff were so helpful and put together a package that was amazing. They organised mountain biking and Laser combat for the morning. Then we had a hot lunch and desert. We were then brought to Collanmore island by high speed rib where they had water sports to suit everyone(Even the non swimmers). They had sailing, sea kyaking and paddle boarding arranged for us. The instructors were professional and great craic. The lads couldn't believe the value we got. The adventure islands is definitely worth a visit and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We did mountain biking, laser combat, and sailing. The whole package was great value. They even threw in hot ports to warm us up.

“the adventure islands...professional, vibrant and friendly staff...and a brilliant weekend had by all.”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

Finbar Brady from Castleknock GAA Club Dublin. Castleknock won the Dublin Minor Football Championship in November and the management decided to reward the panel with a weekend away..after a lot of deliberations we chose The Adventure Islands Westport. This proved to be an inspired choice. From the moment we landed on the Friday evening to our Departure on Sunday we were brilliantly looked after by Ciaran and his staff(sorry cant remember the 2 girls names). We cycled the Greenway to Newport on the Saturday morning and returned to a lovely lunch before getting back on the bikes(ouch!!sore) and heading to Westport house for some fantastic adventure sports that included canoeing, kayaking, water boarding..we also had great fun at the combat games with laser guns. All the time we were there Ciaran and his team ensured the lads were having great fun in a completely safe environment. At every opportuninty Ciaran also took some great photographs which are always nice to look back on. We were treated to a lovely dinner back at base on the saturday evening before we got our glad rags(ie pulling gear) and headed up to witness Westports world famous hospitality. The famous Matt Molloys pub was visited..great crack. We finished off the night in the local Night Club where thanks to Ciaran we got special admission passes!! Unfortunately thats as much as I can divulge as you know the saying...."what goes on tour......etc!!" Thanks again Ciaran and staff for a weekend the will live in the lads memory for a long time.

“Gordo's Excellent Adventure”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

A couple of months ago myself and the kids were looking for something different to do in and around Westport as we were booked into the Hotel Westport for a September break. We got put in touch with this cool new adventure company called The Adventure Islands and they just took over and made our weekend. We did all sorts of activities with them and the kids loved the Kayaking on the Lake and the laser games in the woods. our two older ones were brought sailing the next day out at the company's Island they loved it so much. All I can say is job well done and thanks for giving my kids something to get excited about again other than useless video games.
