Our kids had a fantastic time here. Literally hours of fun. They all worked together on some of the task and enjoyed trying to beat each other at others. I highly recommend it for older kids!

We had a super afternoon in the snow! Thanks to Killian and Fergal for keeping us warm! Really enjoyed the Zip Line and snow ball fights... Highly recommend, even in the cold. The soup and sambos afterwards were also excellent!

Great place for a work team building event. The snow was an extra nice touch. Zip lining and snow ball fights go very well together. A big thanks to killian and fergal our guides for looking after us so well.

Very dissapointed... Not only did they not do what they said would happen.. They expected 2 young teenagers to fend for themselves for 2 1/2hrs because the instructors wanted to go home early!
