Blackwater Outdoor Activities
Why not combine a stay at Blackwater Castle with some adrenalin boosting activities? The Castle is set on a 50 acre estate on the edge of a rocky promontory so there are plenty of natural sites for extreme and not so extreme activities. Try zip-lining across the River Awbeg on the most spectacular zip-line in Ireland (and one of the longest). The River Awbeg winds its way around the Castle so it is the ideal starting point for kayaking or river tubing. The most recent addition to the range of activities on site is a climbing tower with a giant swing and a Leap of Faith – this one is definitely not for the fainthearted! Other activities include a high ropes course, archery, and laser clay pigeon shooting.
The activity centre is run by Blackwater Outdoor Activities which caters for groups by appointment. Brian and Conor deliver a superior quality service guaranteed to set pulses racing and provide a super schedule of exciting activities. Guests of the Castle often combine their stay with a customised programme of activities perfectly suited to the age ranges and abilities of all guests.

You can also read some of the glowing reviews posted by participants on Tripadvisor where thrill seekers have been raving about the Blackwater Outdoor Activities experience – which, along with Blackwater Castle, carries a much deserved 5* rating.
Our private parties and wedding guests frequently incorporate an afternoon of activities with a stay at Blackwater Castle and preferential group rates are available for guests of the Castle.
An afternoon of activities is an ideal way to promote cooperation between colleagues with a “Team Building” emphasis.
