a few visits to the center over the past couple of years have left me addicted to kayaking. The center also offers archery, glamping, windsurfing and assorted other activities. It's a lovely place with friendly and knowledgeable instructors. Thoroughly recommend a visit!

Spacious indoor area. Loads of indoor and outdoor activities to keep old and young entertained. A great range of food if you decide not to take a picnic.

Even though this is my 7th year at this camp, the fun and enjoyment my friends and I have gotten from it hasn't decreased in the slightest! The center is situated on the scenic shores of Lough Allen and is easily accessable by road. The friendly instructors are very helpful and highly qualified to ensure everyone has a safe, yet...

We did the team challenges and archery and could choose between kayaking or the raft challenge. We opted for the raft challenge which was great fun.
