Archery

Archery


Now you can pretend you are Maid Marian, shooting arrows in the unique walled gardens of an 18th century country estate. Archery is one of the oldest sports in history, and here you will have a resident archer fascinate you with details of the pastime’s past. The archery is facilitated by instructors who are members of the Kilkenny Archery Club and whose full qualifications are recognised by none other than the International Archery Federation. Not only will you be able to go into great depth about the beautiful art of archery, you will also be able to enjoy yourself learning and competing with the other ladies. Don’t forget to wear your long sleeved tops.



Canoeing/Kayaking

Canoeing/Kayaking


Ooh, fancy outdoor action with a bit of an adrenaline rush? Then try river adventure! This hen party escapade is a 3 hour activity and an experience you won’t forget in a hurry. It includes everything from lazy moments gliding on open waters and admiring the stunning scenery, to hysterics as everyone tries to ride waves and shoot weirs. The friendly, qualified instructors are passionate about the outdoors and will guide you through the natural trail, covering white waters and the calmer River Safari. They will make sure that you feel comfortable and safe at all times. Photos will be given afterwards so you can stick 'em on Facebook, and you will also be provided with a free photo album showing all your adventures.



Indoor/Outdoor Games

Indoor/Outdoor Games


Come to the exciting 4,400 square feet adventure centre and have a brilliantly fun 3 hours! These games can be physically or mentally challenging and taken seriously or light-heartedly for some great craic and team bonding. They are suitable for all ages and degrees of fitness and cover a wide range including the much loved Giant Skis, Balloon Tower, floor puzzles and Pipe-Relay. One favourite is of course Spider’s Web…the whole team must pass through a giant spider’s web, but every team member has to go through a different segment! There is even an extra discount for groups of over 20 people; a roll, drink and packet of crisps can be bought for just a fiver. If the weather is fine then the games can even be done outside in the sunshine.



Go Karting

Go Karting


A 1,000 metre, super smooth, all weather, floodlit track is in Kilkenny, just waiting to offer you the exhilarating buzz of a lifetime. The circuit is probably the safest in Ireland, while the staff are all carefully selected and trained to ensure that you are in the very best hands. You will be provided with everything you need for a fantastic driving experience, including superb Sodi GT3 karts which are powered by a 270cc, 9hp Honda engine and constantly inspected to ensure that they are up to a very high standard. If there are 9 or more of you, why not have a spirited race? Grand prix drivers are allowed a good 4 laps to get a feel for the track and karts, then 8 laps to qualify. Each lap is recorded and the person in the group who achieves the fastest one will start on pole position. Once everyone has their place on the grid, let the 20 minute final begin! Here every racer will try to make their way to first place before the chequered flag is waved. The drivers who arrive first, second and third will proudly be able to claim their victory on a podium. Slips will be printed so that they can compare their times, and the winner will even get a bottle of bubbly! Let’s show the men why women drivers are better – why should the guys have all the fun?



Orienteering

Orienteering


This is the ultimate fun treasure hunt, and an ideal activity to help members of the party bond and get to know each other better. The gang is split into teams, with each one having to retrieve 20 clues with codes on them. With their vital maps they must search all around the extensive, handsome parklands in a 200-year-old country estate on the banks of the River Nore. Each clue is worth a certain amount of money, and the team that brings home the most high value clues…that’s right, they win! It’s the perfect, light-hearted combat based in a large centre that also offers high quality, locally sourced food.



Golf

Golf


It is believed that 25% of the world’s golfers are women, and now you can proudly count yourself as part of that classy club. This is no crazy or mini golf, this is the real deal, played on a beautifully kept course that will take your breath away. But you don’t need to be professional or experienced to play here, oh no! Be as amateur as you like, keep it light-hearted and fun, and laugh at balls going into waters and bushes while we provide the full equipment for you to play with.



Pitch & Putt

Pitch & Putt


Pitch & putt is the smaller, faster and milder version of golf. Thanks to its shorter course – no hole length can be more than 90m – the game is accessible to everyone and your girls won’t need to worry about trying to hit long shots. Each round shouldn’t take longer than an hour, so you don’t have to be there all day. This is seriously amateur, a perfect game for a group of girls to play and have a laugh. We’ll provide you with the clubs, tees and balls, so all you need to do is enjoy yourself. You won’t even have to wear those silly golfing clothes…unless you want to, of course!



Indoor Automated Pistol/Rifle Shooting

Indoor Automated Pistol/Rifle Shooting


This activity is seriously good fun, and one that few of the gang will have tried before! Go to the only active indoor licenced target shooting range in the whole of Ireland, whip out a gun, and pretend you’re Lara Croft. The long rifles and the shorter pistols are just like those they use in the army and action movies and you can play with them for a whole hour, or for 90 minutes including a competition. These guns use non-metallic pellets and have no backlash, so there is no fear of getting hurt, and food and drinks are of course available to add that extra bit of comfort while you take on what is quickly becoming a popular hen party challenge.



Laser combat

Laser combat


If you want a painless alternative to Paintball in Ireland, why not try a game of Laser Tag at Ireland's #1 100 Acre woodland Laser Tag Venue! Laser Combat allows you to experience what a war is really like. It is ideal for Stag and Hen parties, Team Building and is even suitable for kids birthday parties, because unlike paintball, it is painless!



Paintballing

Paintballing


Paintballing is a terrific game that every girl has to try at least once in her life, and there is no better time than with a group of friends at a hen party! This impressive centre has 4 specially designed paintballing zones complete with reconditioned military vehicles and authentic military forts. Intense and realistic combat scenarios can be created on a range of terrain including urban compounds, uphill battlefields and water obstacles. Paintball guns and masks are available for free, not to mention freshly laundered overalls to help keep your clothes clean. All sessions are between 1 and 3 hours, depending on the package that you select, and while you will always get the chance to try different tactics when facing your enemy, no two paintball games will ever be the same.



Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay Pigeon Shooting


The chances are that most of your girls have never held a gun before. Now they can carry out the thrilling experience of shooting at flying clay targets using a proper shotgun. Qualified instructors will provide all the necessary tools and help the team learn how to stay calm, aim, keep a keen eye and react quickly. They’ll be relaxed and hitting those inanimate birds in no time, not to mention having craic getting all good and competitive. Watch out, you’ll be surprised who’s naturally a good shot.
