Carrick Quads provide a fantastic opportunity to really get off the beaten track, all 100 acres of it. The Quad bikes themselves are in excellent condition and surprisingly powerful. This is an excellent choice if you are in a group as with quad biking it really is the more the merrier.
Tripadvisor.com – “Highly recommended. Great experience” ’Brilliant track and gear. Great for families with teenagers or stag/hens. Very helpful staff. Highly recommended and loads of time to get a feel for it if needed’
If you are travelling in a group then this is quite simply a must do! It is a truly unique experience, you are on a football pitch covered from waist to well above your head so you can run & clip into your buddies. There is a little bit of football involved, for some it is an important aspect, for others the important part is the fun of knocking your friends over, repeatedly.
There are quite a few factors that go into making a great golf course but for us, scenery comes just ahead of the variety of the holes, luckily Carrick-on-Shannon Golf Club offers both. The course in 18 holes in total and is perfect for golfers at all levels.
For a group of lads that know each other and love a bit of banter, this is the top choice every time. You can gather in groups, talk tactics and then fire pellets at your mates! You may be walking around Carrick-on-Shannon later on with a few scrapes and bangs but trust us, it is worth it. The guys at Battlebridge are great, they are well used to catering for stag parties and assigning groups to maximise the ‘craic’.Paintballing is not an unusual choice, but it is a good choice. The only slight concern is if it rains. Rain will add to the fun for some and ruin it for others!
Off road 4x4 driving:
Driving an off road 4×4 jeep from A to B over rough terrain is a thrilling experience for anyone. This requires some skill as you drive through mud and master rough terrain. This would be a unique experience for your group and the perfect choice for adrenaline junkies.
