Owner description: Based on the shores of Strangford Lough; just 45 minutes from Belfast. Come to Clearsky Adventure Centre for a wide range of activities on offer to everyone a€" from the young to the young at heart. The centre was also used extensively for the filming of Game of Thrones. As you drive down through the estate you soon realise why the HBO film location scouts chose here; the centres medieval walls and castle clock tower, the beautiful surrounding landscapes and far-reaching views across the water; it was the perfect place to create the fantasy 'Winterfell' - home of the Stark family Adventure days and courses for individuals to large groups. Canoeing, Laser Clay Pigeon Shooting, Kayaking, Sea Kayaking, Abseiling, Rock Climbing, Coasteering, Raft Build and Racing, Archery, Crate Stacking and more. Experience Clearsky &€" inspiration, fun and enjoyment for everyone.

“Family day at Clearsky”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2010

Booking at short notice for a family group where ages ranged from 8 to 70, Ellie was enthusiastic and efficient, providing good advice on the range of activities available and calling us straight back with options. We opted for a morning mountain biking and an afternoon coasteering.
On the day, Andy was equally enthusiastic and accommodating to the range of skills within our party, providing safe and fun supervision; and patience and support for the less adventurous.
The whole family had a great day at Clearsky, and we will be going back.

“Great Day Coasteering with Clearsky Adventures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2010

Great day out in a beautiful location. We had the added bonus of the RIB taking us to the location. Davey and Andy looked after us very well. Would totally recommend it to anyone. Not too strenuous and a great way to see the coast. Lovely hot shower back at the centre

“Well Happy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2010

We had a great time and all was perfect. The combination of the Base camp Castle Ward and the Clearsky center just down the hill was great. We enjoyed the rock hopping very much and the weather was very kind to us. We had a good paddle in the lough in the open canoes seeing the fish jump and the local sea birds flying about . The completion of the archery was high but great fun. The kids loved the climbing wall and the where pushing to get to the most difficult section. The instructors in all the activities where great. They did make the activities more enjoyable. They did make sure that the safety aspect to all our activities came first and we had no issues there. Thanks to Castle ward National Trust and all the staff of Clearsky Adventure Center.

Donegal Scout group.

“Extreme Coasteering. Definately something you HAVE to do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2010

Have just come back from a brilliant afternoon out Extreme Coasteering with Clearsky Adventure. For those thrill seekers out there this is definitely something you have to do. Clearsky do a range of activities but the Extreme Coasteering was our choice. There were 11 blokes aged from the late 20’s to mid 30’s and we all had a belter time.

Coasteering is basically getting suited up in a wet suit, buoyancy aid and helmet and then diving off rocks/small cliffs into rock pools. Its not tame stuff and you would need to be confident enough with some heights and definitely be able to swim. But you have instructors there for safety and to talk you through things. James, our instructor was a good laugh and made the day for us. There is nothing like this elsewhere in Northern Ireland so it is definitely something to think about doing. Really, really good banter.

I would 100% do it again. Make sure to bring old trainers.
