Visited with children from 6-17 on a reasonably cold May morning. Wet suits and the facilities provided were all well maintained and clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The actual water park itself has something for everyone but small children may struggle a little to get in and out of the water. Really excellent experience all round even in... More

Was a dull day and so we took the kids here as they've been before and loved it. All equipment is provided. Make sure they are wearing socks! ! My husband and I then walked over to the hotel for a nice coffee and to use the wifi. Then once kids ready, popped into Athlone for lunch.

Bay sports was a fun day out - and such a different activity for the family to part-take in. The staff were wonderful, so enthusiastic and helpful. It rained while we were there but it didn't matter, the craic was mighty.

Recently visited Baysports. Very surprised that it could not be prebooked. I think it would help with the smooth running of this facility. We opted for the combo package of kayaking and obstacles course costing €25 per child. Kids are 10yrs and 12yrs. The kayaking was a disaster and a complete waste of money. A guy set them up told...

Kids enjoyed it, was only 26 euro admission for the 2 of them. Wet suits and life jackets are provided and a safety brief is given prior to going out to the inflatables. The changing area is quite small and the on-shore area could do with tidying up / refurbishing. We visited on a hot day in August and there... More

A well run outfit and an hour of serious fun. Had been on something similar before in Ibiza but this was much better as there were lots of places with enough handles/ladders to get back on to the inflatables after you jumped/ fell/ slid off. Round tower slide is class. Lots of kids/teens there but myself and my boyfriend really... More
