Ballyhass Adventure Group
Multi Location Adventure Company
The Ballyhass Adventure Group is made up of two activity centres in Cork. Ballyhass Mallow which was originally Ballyhass Lakes was established 20 years ago. Originally a trout fishery based out of an old quarry the site expanded by adding 11 self catering holiday homes to target overseas anglers. As the seasons went by the site was expanded into outdoor activities starting with utilising the beautiful crystal clear waters of the quarry. Kayaking, Raft building on the water alongside rock climbing and abseiling on the natural cliff faces. This resulted in an amazing day out comprised of Land, Water & Height Activities. This became the core of our outdoor experiences. It has stayed true for the next 15 years of activities in Mallow and we now plan on developing Ballyhass Coachford to mirror what we have built in our first site.
In Mallow after developing the outdoor activities further with the addition of Ziplines, Highrope and low ropes courses we made our next big development. In 2015 we installed Irelands largest cable wakeboarding facility. In the years after the install Mallow has become the home of cable wakeboarding in Ireland hosting several major competitions including the Irish nationals and being host to some of the worlds best professional wakeboarders. It has become a training ground for up and coming wakeboarder's. Each year we hold several youth training camps and cutting edge summer camps to promote the sport to youths. We run ladies days and introduction courses deliver and coached by women for women. It is an amazing sport that we are delighted to keep pushing into the future.
Irelands Largest Cable Wakeboarding Centre
Following the expansion into wakeboarding in 2017 are next big addition was installed. Ballyhass Aquapark's first course was put into our Mallow site. This giant inflatable water park was a instant hit. The slides, trampolines, climbing walls, Balance logs, blast bags and obstacles were a dream playground for young and old. With over 10,000 participants going through our aquapark alone in 2017 we became an outdoor destination not just for groups but for individuals, families and small groups looking for a unique outdoor experience.
The aquapark opening lead to Ballyhass Coachford in the off season and we were delighted to bring our second Aquapark course to our new site in Coachford in June 2018. With the addition of Kayaking tours and Stand Up Paddle Boarding experiences we were blown away by the response of people going to our new centre in 2018. With 11 acres of the beautiful Inniscarra Lake to explore it has been an instant hit. Ballyhass Coachford will continue to develop for the foreseeable future and we are excited to be able to offer the public two unique outdoor destinations in Cork.
