If you stand by the shore at our outdoor adventure centre, the clear waters of Lough Allen stretch ahead of you, before your eyes rise to the historic Arigna mountain, a National Heritage Area.

Turn around and you’re protected by the majestic Sliabh an Iarainn to your back. This “mountain of iron” was the arrival place of the Tuatha Dé Danann, Ireland’s mythological warrior race and iron ore from the mountain is said to have been used in the construction of Dublin’s Ha’penny bridge. 

Look to your left and you’ll see the journey our kayakers, paddleboarders and canoeists take to glide along the iconic Drumshamazon on the Shannon Blueway.

Look to your right and you’ll appreciate the lake waters that take our water wayfarers to their relaxed wilderness experience at O’Connor’s Island. 

That’s before you might enjoy a coffee at our Wild Way Café or take a stroll through picturesque Drumshanbo.

Welcome to Lough Allen Adventure Centre, where the Hidden Heartlands meets the Wild Atlantic Way. 

We’re an award-winning eco facility, where our visitors can enjoy a wide variety of adventure sports and outdoor activities in a relaxed setting. 

As a specialist outdoor adventure centre with friendly and experienced instructors, you can take time to enjoy slow adventure, wilderness therapy and water sports for a morning, an afternoon or a day.

You can also book a package, tailored just to you. Stay at our own budget accommodation or on our spacious campsite overlooking the lake. 

Our mission is to bring the power of being active outdoors closer to our everyday lives. Outdoor adventure is simply fun in the fresh air! 

By disconnecting from our typical routine and spending time alfresco, we can reconnect with ourselves, our natural environment and others. 

Have a look at our popular and special packages where you can choose an epic adventure or a relaxing, re-energizing day. Either way, you’ll have lots of fun along the way!

Take a Wim Hof Method and wilderness therapy course and learn how to focus, de-stress and take your mental awareness and resilience to a whole new level!

Relax on the water and paddle the iconic Drumshamazon or take a trip on the lough to O’Connor’s Island with one of our signature kayaking and paddleboarding tours. 

You can spend a few hours on our island wilderness experience, learning survival, campcraft and bushcraft skills.

Why not try a Wim Hof breathwork session with your island experience?
