Visited Killary Adventure Centre late March with three 12 year old girls. We had originally booked a full day of activities to include: "The turf challenge, Ringo rides, Gorge walking and cliff jumping". Unfortunately, due to poor weather conditions, the Ringo rides had to be cancelled which initially caused disappointment to the girls but we were given the option of picking two other activities instead; girls choose to do the "High swing, the rope bridge & abseiling". We started our day with these, had lunch and then did the turf challenge, Cliff jumping & gorge walking in the evening. Absolutely every activity was brilliant, our instructors: Leann & Lawrence endeavoured to make our experience one to remember, we felt reassured throughout & had a great laugh! They took the time to instruct us as a group & individually, encouraged & maintained a fun & enjoyable experience for us all. Our day was built around a "team" environment, under their continued guidance. Really cannot say enough good things about them both! There were a few cuts & many bruises, Lawrence ensured we were all ok before we finished our day & provided some light first aid. We were already planning our next visit before we left the premises!

Having attended a stag last year at Killary i was really impressed by the entire weekend. I decided to book a weekend for my family, a slightly different tone to a weekend away but expectations were high after a stag weekend filled with fun!

From arranging and booking dates with Mary and Linda in early January, correspondence and communication was always very easy. With email updates, calls about what activities to take and what was needed for the weekend.

Myself, ,my wife and extended family had the pleasure of spending the weekend at the Center. To say how overwhelmed we all were by the service, welcome and overall experience from the weekend is an understatement. Absolutely everybody we met working in the center was superb.

On check-in Linda kindly offered a second dorm should we need it for extra space, Jenny, Cian and Dave who took us wall climbing were brilliant. They obviously really enjoy what they do and they were so friendly and professional with the morning activity. Nothing was a problem for them and I really can't say enough about them. Nischa (excuse the spelling) took us on the Turf Challenge in the afternoon. To no surprise he was an incredible instructor, patient, friendly and professional and aside from that he was a really nice genuine guy. I was also like to pay compliment to the two ladies who fed and watered us for the weekend. We felt like VIP's with our own special dining room. The table was set beautifully for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Saturday night. I sadly did not catch the names of the two ladies but we were all so appreciative of the effort and service put in.

Again I would like to extend a massive thank you to ALL the staff at Killary Adventure Center. Absolutely everybody was fantastic. I have been fortunate enough to stay in some really nice hotels however the service we received in Killary was certainly on par with some 5 star resorts.

I will surely be back to stay in the near future.

Many thanks for the hospitality.

Thank you to the Killary crew for making our long weekend so much fun. Everything from the drive down from the airport to the incredible fjord were breathtakingly beautiful. There was also a beach nearby that was really special as the sun was setting. We tackled the high ropes and the climbing walls which was great fun. Our group was a real mixed ability but the instructors made us feel really safe and fun for all of us. Would definitely go back!!
