We have worked really hard during lockdown to implement the government’s guidelines on Covid19 and Social distancing. We’ve implemented Pods of 15, sanitising stations, Masks & Temperature checks, separate arrival locations; and reduced bedroom capacity. We’re proud to have been awarded Failte Ireland’s Covid19 Safety Charter which means you can book with confidence.
We have quarantine rooms available which can be used to isolate anyone thought to have Covid until test can be taken to determine for sure and parents contacted etc.
Temperatures are recorded every day and anyone with a high temperature is asked to isolate.
If you cannot travel due to covid travel restrictions then we will refund you, if you cancel for any other reason we are happy to change the date or give you a credit note.

Yes no problem, we note requests like this on the booking. The rooms are on average 6 per room so we will have the pods in rooms beside each other.
No children are not allowed to leave the building on their own. There is an onsite shop and vending machines for them to use.
We’ve had loads of positive feedback and are confident our Adventure Camp offers a lot more than traditional ‘summer camps’ offered elsewhere. We aim to positively improve young people’s lives with what we call ‘Adventure Therapy’. Here’s just a small sample of feedback we’ve received.
21. Are the kids supervised the whole time and through the night while on the camp?
Kids on our residential camp are supervised the whole time they are on the camp by one of our experienced instructors. They start their day off with an instructor for their morning activity who stays with them all day through lunch and into the late afternoon, then one of our other instructors then starts their evening activity with the kids, the kids then get a bit of time to relax with our facilities. They then head to bed at 11 o’clock and the instructor stays on as their night warden. They stay in the adventure centre in our dormitory style rooms which vary in size.
