“Can make a grumpy teenager smile!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2011

My sister and I brought our 4 children (15,13,11,10) for an afternoon of mud surfing and a go at the obstacle course as a way of passing a few hours at the activity centre. The entire Eclipse team were an absolute pleasure and managed the kids perfectly (no mean feat with 2 grumpy teenagers!). Activities were very well organised and great fun so much so that they asked to go back a second time two days later for orienteering and horse riding and despite the typical Irish bad weather we got out an had a great time. The centre has residential cottages which looked great and a M*A*S*H style tent that sleeps 12 for larger groups. The hot tub would have been welcome after finding muscles we forgot existed but alas we hadn't time to experience. The scenery is also stunning!

We stayed in one of Eclipse's houses for two weeks with our three kids (12, 11 and 9). The house was surprisingly spacious, very well kitted out and extremely comfortable. Athos, his family and staff created an atmosphere that was very warm and friendly. The location and range of activities available left our kids with complete freedom to take advantage of all the space on the estate eg. bikes, kayaks, etc.
In terms of organised activities, we did horse riding - lessons and trekking, archery, orienteering, treasure hunt, obstacle course and mud surfing. One of our most pleasurable experiences was an evening fishing with Athos - we caught 4 mackerel which he cooked for us there and then.
We also spent days travelling to various spots in Kerry, eg. Muckross House, Derrynane etc.
All in all we couldn't recommend Eclipse highly enough for families with kids of all ages.
