What a FANTASTIC experience we had at Eclipse on our recent trip to Ireland.

We enjoyed our horseback ride on September 4, 2013. Everyone at the stables was simply wonderful. From the moment we walked in, the staff was welcoming and kind. Iris and Michelle were fun guides out on the trails and riverbeds. They offered to take some great photos of us, too!

Iris went above and beyond to get us hiking advice for Gleninchaquin Park and it was just incredible. We would never have stumbled upon that adventure without her!

It is a group like you all that make touring in Ireland so very special to me. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

As an organised group of 6 adults and 20 children we arrived at the Eclipse Centre. Athos and his family were waiting to greet and organise us, they were welcoming, efficient, organised and kind.
We went on to have a very fun, adventure packed 48 hours with Athos and his family always on hand.
This facility is well worth a visit, the children still speak about it.

Holidaying in nearby Sneem we rang to book some adventure activities for our party of 9 which consisted of all ages from kids aged 11, to teenagers and to some of us in our late 40's. It cost €20 each person which for 3 1/2 hours was brilliant value. With some trepidation, we decided on orienteering, following by an army-type assault adventure course. We had the best few hours of fun we have had in a long time. Orienteering was fun with 9 clues and strong competition between the teams to get every advantage (not always fairly). The assault course was extremely challenging and scary at times (for the oldies) but we were so well monitored by our instructor who was with us every step of the way encouraging us to get over each obstacle and so, with much difficulty, we overcame each challenge, much to the amusement of our younger members. Teamwork was essential to help all levels. Some of the situations we found ourselves in will forever live in the memories !!! Sitting on the top of the nine foot wall, terrified to move and covered head to toe in mud for one challenge!! When it finished it was back to base to do some mental tests and then count our overall scores and get well earned (free) drinks of our choice. The pre-arranged forfeit of the losers cooking dinner and doing clean-up was hard fought but the winning team was ecstatic. Brilliant brilliant fun and worth every penny. The instructor was particularly helpful and seemed to enjoy it as much as we did.

I along with a youth group I work with participated in two unbelievable fun packed days in the Eclipse Center. The group was a mixture of both male and female and equally enjoyed all the activities undertaken. We engaged in activities such as bog running, assault course and horse riding on day one followed by gorge walking in the black water river on day 2 which consisted of jumping from various heights into the river and battling against falling rapids whilst wearing all the necessary safety equipment.!! The experience was thrilling throughout and at all times safety was ensured. I would highly recommend anyone reading this review to go and experience the fun, adventure and adrenalin rush that is sure to be got from a day at the Eclipse Center. You don't have to travel all around world for such an amazing experience its here in Kerry which I found hard to believe. I would rate this experience as highly as my experience snorkeling in Australia and it was only a 40 minute drive away!!!

I would like to thank the Staff at the center for their enthusiasm, energy and encouragement throughout the two days as I believe was a major contributing factor to the amazing experience we all had. Athos, Ripley & Andy could not be more friendly and ensured we got the most out of our time in the center. We will definitely be returning however next time we will be sure to avail of the high spec accommodation on site during our next visit.

What an amazing experience we had over 2 days at the Eclipse center. I'm from Kerry and have traveled all over seeking adventure getaways but never have i experienced anything like this. From the range of activities to how the staff ran the facilities and catered for our group was just outstanding. we had team building, horse riding bog running and the assault course on the first day which had me laughing all day long. On day two it was down to blackwater bridge where we were kitted out in safety gear and wet suits and had the most amazing Adrenalin rushes as we battled against the gravity of the water and jumped up to 10 meters off rocks into pools below us. I can not wait to go back and this time stay over in the fantastic accommodation they have to offer.

Thanks again guys
