Swimwear & Towel
We will provide all the wetsuits and safety equipment. Swimming togs are to be worn under these. If you have your own wetsuit you are welcome to bring it along.
Plastic Bag or Dry bag
You will more than likely have a lot of wet clothes so these are handy when packing.
Everything on the Aquaprk only list plus:
Wet shoes or Old Shoes
For kayaking and raft building you will need to wear some form of footwear in the water. For all other water activities, you will have to walk with wetsuits on so shoes/ flip flops are vital.
Warm Outdoor Clothing
We are an outdoor activity centre. If it is raining we will still operate, we have a sheltered site that nothing short of a red weather warning stops us. It is your responsibility to have appropriate outdoor clothing. If nothing else at bringing a spare pair of clothes.
Rainproof outer layer
Probably the most important part of all. You can pick up cheap ponchos in any supermarket outdoor store. It will make your experience so much better if it's raining. (Or at a minimum a spare pair of clothing that can act as an extra layer)
Big packed lunch
On a full day, you will be outside for over 6.5 hours doing several active experiences. Trust us you WILL be hungry. We have a small cafe on site that has snacks available.
Refillable water bottle
We have a water fountain on site that you can refill your water bottle in between sessions.
€ coins for the Lets Eat Cafe
Our hot chocolates are famous!! We will also have our Lets Eat Takeaway cafe working on some days. Check with us in advance or pre book hot meals for the whole group.
Hat/Gloves for colder months
A woolly hat makes a huge difference in the shoulder seasons March/ April / September / October
Even on a cloudy day, this prevents wind burn. We can't overstate how important this is at all times of the year regardless of what the weather forecast says.
Over Night Trip
Bring everything you need for a Aquapark only, day trip plus the following
Shower gear & toiletries
You will have free time either in the evening or the morning to shower. Your group will appreciate it!!
Extra set of clothing
You are here for an extra day don't forget..
Night time snacks
All our accommodation partners are in rural settings with no access to snacks after the traditional Irish meals. No harm in having some extra midnight snacks. No One likes someone who is Hangry...
You will be sharing at all of our accommodation options. (All linen will be provided for on the trip)
