We had a wonderful stay at Eclipse with our scout troop. On day one we took on an obstacle course and archery session, did orienteering, went on a crazy bog run and ended the day with an assault course - mucky, hilarious and seriously challenging. The barbecue in the evening, cooked by Athos, was extremely good - you can tell he's been in the restaurant business and the accommodation is high standard. The next day we went on a beautiful hike along the Kenmare Bay, where we learnt about survival in the wild and foraged for mussels and limpets, which we then ate (most of us anyway!) The helpers, Andy and Rippen were fantastic at imparting knowledge and making sure everyone had a brilliant time. We'll be back.

I booked a Halloween break to Eclipse to give my family something 'different'. Well we definitely got that! We travelled down from Belfast and stayed on site in one of the self-catering houses. We are a family of 6 (kids 13, 11, 9 & 7). Athos and Anita put together a package which included Horse riding, kayaking, assault course, orienteering, treasure hunt and mud surfing. It was a very unique experience to be honest but the most impressive thing was that we ended up feeling like part of the family! The highlights or the things that we keep talking about and laughing about are the assault course (which we done with a number of other families) and the mud surfing (which I will not explain but is one of the most exiliarating and memorable things that I have done). I cannot say anything apart from good things about Eclipse, Athos and Anita. If you have a group that you want to bond and have a unique experience then book, bring some old clothes and have a laugh. The horse riding and the scenery that came with it has to be experienced. Thanks again guys for a memorable holiday and keep up the good work. We hope to come back soon.

I booked this trip for 11 friends and myself, we stayed on site in the absolutely fantastic self catering accommodation, 12 of us in one house and there were still free beds. loads of room for everyone. We done the Coasteering Bronze Package, none of us had done this before so we didn't know what to expect, it was an incredible experience that we all enjoyed. Athos, Anita & the team really looked after us and made it a weekend never to forget. We will definitely be going back as soon as we can free up time from work. The videos don't do it justice, it has to be experienced and is 100% safe.
