Carlingford Adventure is a family-owned business in operation since 1990 providing adventures for schools, youth groups, families and international students. We are the most popular adventure centre in Ireland for schools, with schools also visiting us from across the UK and further afield. In addition to adventure activities, we also provide English language courses and study skills programmes.

Our 3 adventure sites cater to a wide variety of fun adventure activities. Woodland includes orienteering, laser combat, rock climbing, ziptopia and axe throwing. Sea includes kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddleboard and raft building, as well as fun activities like pier jumping and inflatable trampoline. Skypark is an aerial adventure park which also has the Crystal Maze challenge course, team development high ropes, footgolf, archery and more! Whatever type of activity you are looking for from strenuous and adrenaline-filled to team building and leisurely activities we have something for everyone.

Facilities also include a 250-bed hostel, canteen, games room, sports hall, volleyball court and more. All situated within medieval Carlingford complete with castles, pedestrian streets and harbour overlooking beautiful Carlingford Lough and the Mourne Mountains.
