Laser tag

My son had his birthday party with laser tag for 20 kids age 13. They all had a great time. The instructors were great with the kids and made sure they all enjoyed themselves. All the team at the Adventure Centre are really helpful including the team who take the phone bookings. Andrew at reception is excellent. Well done everyone on a great job! We’ve previously been to sky park and day camps and all are a great experience also. This is a great activity location in the area.

Alice and funderland

This adventure centre was very enjoyable.
I went with my class to carlingford adventure centre for 2 nights. The first instructor we got was Alice. She was very conscious of the children but still made everything fun. She explained everything to us in a simple way and when we were leaving she was the only person that everyone took the time to say goodbye to. Please make sure that she sees this as we miss her very much.


We went to Carlingford Adventure Centre with our team. We had an instructor called Ellie. She was so funny and kind. She helped us when we needed help and was very approachable. I’ll be coming here with my family next summer and I hope I see Ellie again. Would highly recommend for team building or school groups

Yup Carlingford

Liam, Craig, Michael and Javier were super dooper and gave us the time of our lives and made sure we did not drown didn’t fall off a zip-line and made sure we didn’t fall into the fire. Make sure the four lads get a raise please and thank you. Also your apartments were serious thank you love bailiebourgh xx👑


Amazing, my son has gone two years running with his friend. Staff and leaders were incredible. My son is a fussy eater and LOVED the food! Every child should experience this as their first ‘holiday’ away on their own, would HIGHLY recommend. Hope my son gets to go again this year…….memories forever.

Great accommodation, great workers.

Sound workers, every one of them. Accommodation right in the middle of town where you want it, perfect for going out to the pub, very cheap yet high quality too. Highly reccommend.

Carlingford 2022

I stayed here for one night with my school – the food was very nice, good portions for such active days. The accommodations were perfect and I loved the volleyball court. The staff were all so helpful and encouraging. One of the employees who took us on our first day – Emily was so so kind and made the day so much more fun. She was engaged in allot of the activities with us and was there if anyone needed any help. She was so upbeat and when we were all tired got us up and going again. I had a great time I would definitely recommend.


I went away to Carlingford for a night with my school. We had an amazing time and did loads of different activities, but, what made our stay even better was our instructor Alex! He was so enthusiastic, funny and made our games a lot more fun by being creative and energetic. His sense of humour and enthusiasm made everyone wanted to join in.

Bloody Brilliant

Really enjoyed the homeliness of the very welcoming staff here, and the activities were terrific. Would absolutely come again.

Great day out

Really good day out. We were looked after by Leigh and his team. The activities and set up were fantastic. Would highly recommend 👌

Great fun every time!

Amazing place for entire family playdates! My son loves going to the Skypark or taking part in water sports. Their Skypark birthday parties are all about fun…

Good support for ASD.

My son (11) attended with the cub scouts for the weekend. Accommodations were made for his autism spectrum challenges and the instructors were great, asking questions about how best to support him throughout the weekend.
