Spent last Saturday at Blackwater Outdoor Activity Centre. From start to finish we had a fantastic day. Sean, Joe and Cody were our instructors and they were a pleasure to deal with. I Highly recommend a visit..

“Adventureland on your doorstep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

Spent last Thursday and Friday at Blackwater Outdoor Activity centre as part of a group from Presentation Secondary School, Ballyphehane, Cork. !9 second year students and 3 teachers camped there on Thursday night and did all of the activities on the site. Upon arrival on Thursday we were greeted by Brian and his crew who told us the history of the castle, showed us the grounds which were breathtaking and the activities that were available and the facilities on site. We were staying in the campsite and there were plenty of tents available . The washing facilities were excellent, the recreation room great and all the food was homemade and plenty of it .The instructors all had great lively personalities and made every activity so much fun, We did archery, river tubing, zip wiring, obstacle course, paint balling, kayaking etc.. The instructors took plenty of time kitting everyone out for each acitivity and we all felt very safe in their hands. The climbing wall was great fun, leap of faith for the adventurous and the swing was something else, Thank you so much guys for making our trip there so enjoyable, we hope to see you all soon We really had a blast, Rose, Sheila and Fiona and the 2nd year group

“Excellent choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Our end of year trip with our youth club, was spent on a camping trip to Blackwater Outdoor activities centre in Castletownroche. We had a group of 31 (15 boys and 16 girls). It was an absolutely brilliant experience! Each and every one of them enjoyed it immensely. We did River Tubing, Zip Wiring, Archery, Orienteering, High Swing, Rock Climbing and Paintballing. Meals were supplied by the centre and everyone enjoyed the food. The staff were excellent at their jobs and were entertaining and fun to be with. We would highly recommend the centre for anyone looking for a fun and exciting place to go!

I recently visited Blackwater Castle as a surprise for my hen with some of my friends.The girls organised an afternoon of activities to get the party started.The setting in Blackwater is simply stunning!!!Spotlessly clean and so scenic!On arrival we were greeted by Sean,Willie and Ciaran who kitted us out in our safety gear and ran through the safety procedures with us.I have to compliment the 3 lads on their warm friendly and professional manner.My friends and I had the most fantastic afternoon,we were terrified,excited and loved every minute!The lads made sure we had a great laugh and made us feel so so welcome!!I honestly can't recommend this place highly enough and I'm so looking forward to my next visit!!!!!
