School Tours & Youth Clubs

As Seen on BBC, RTÉ and TV3

School tours at the Kilkenny Activity Centre, as seen on TV3, BBC, RTE and Irish TV. We provide a purpose built centre located in the heart of Kilkenny offering the ‘Best School Tours Ever’ and ‘Epic’ youth club outings. Choose from our diverse range of activities which include Paintball, Bubble Soccer, Splatball, Body Bowling, Archery Darts and of course the ‘Hell’s KitchenAssault Course which includes a super fun water slide.

 

Located to the rear of The Orchard House Bar & Restaurant just off the M9 Motorway, we are 5 minutes from Kilkenny City Centre and within easy reach of all the schools and clubs in the South and South East. If your school or youth club requires overnight accommodation we can arrange that too through our sister company Kilkenny Concierge.

 

All activities are fully insured and instructor led with a hands-on approach to ensure everyone gets the most out of their time. It also means that the teachers/leaders can relax and enjoy a tea or coffee from our coffee dock. We can arrange food for your group or they can bring their own lunches. We have parking facilities for buses and cars and have catered for groups of up to 100 children at any one time.

 

If you wish to make your School Tours or Club Trips educational as well as fun, Kilkenny Castle, Dunmore Caves and St. Canice’s Cathedral are just some of the historical places of interest within easy reach of the Kilkenny Activity Centre. We’ve compiled a list of educational places to go and things to do in Kilkenny in this blog post.

 

So if you REALLY want your students to love you or want your club to idolise you book your school tours in the Kilkenny Activity Centre where they’re guaranteed to have the ‘Best Time Ever’!

Forget Footgolf — Footdarts is the latest craze for School Tours in Kilkenny!

 

Armed with just your football skills step up to the board and see which of your group can get the highest score in “301”, “Around the Clock” or “Shangai”. If you want to get more competitive play team vs team in a game of Chase the Ace or Cricket! You also get the chance to test your hurling skills in a game of Hurling Darts or try your hand at Archery Darts with our high-powered bows & Velcro arrows.

 

Now introducing the brilliant game of Body Bowling. While in a bubble, participants are rolled towards a set of inflatable pins to see who can knock the most. Just like regular bowling except you’re the ball! Let me hear you shout ‘STRIKE’!

 

That’s an exciting, stress free and super fun combo that all the class can enjoy!

Best craic ever! For a truly memorable day out why not try Bubble Soccer at the Kilkenny Activity Centre?
