Our Road to Adventure

We have been providing amazing outdoor experiences for over 15 years. Orginially we operated a marine lesuire facility in Kinsale, we now offer over 20 different outdoor activities from two amazing locations in Mallow & Coachford Co.Cork. And now, we are on a mission to inspire people to get everyone active outdoors! We are aiming to do this through Accesibility (Multiple Locations) Affordability (Adventure Pass and Inclusive events) & Education (showing you where to take your next adventure and providing you with the skills to do so.)

Our team offer all instructor led activities on a challenge by choice basis. In a nut shell, you go as far, high or intense as you want to go. Don't worry though, our team are experts at providing that extra bit of motivation when needed. We are the steeping stone for people to start their healthy and active outdoor lifestyles.

Our Core values are at the heart of everything we do. They guide the team each day to ensure they provide the best experience possible. They are there to remind us the importance of what we are doing and who we are doing it for. Modern life can be hectic but one thing that will stay constant, is the clear benefits of living a healthy outdoor lifestyle. Adventure is so important for all our development. 

Our mission is to inspire everyone to get active outdoors. Team Ballyhass is on the road to accomplish it!



Always enjoy what you do. Bring Passion and fun to the job every day. A smile is worth so much and remember it could be everyones one and only chance this year to have an outdoor adventure experience this year. We are here to make sure you remember it.
