Each day is different so you are guaranteed to take part in a wide variety of fun adventures on both land and water. We pride ourselves on offering some of the best watersports in Ireland.
Activities on the programme include water-based sports like windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and stand up paddleboarding, land-based activities like archery, climbing and mountain biking and arts activities such as t-shirt painting and film-making.
One of the main attractions and an area where we have got some of our best feedback from people on family activity holidays is our water park. The Wibit Water Park is one of the most popular family activities in Fermanagh and is a great way to burn off the kids’ bundles of energy!
