The Centre also includes ensuite accommodation, a range of changing facilities to suit different organisations, excellent dining facilities, coffee lounge facilities, information on the Mournes, and a range of meeting and conference rooms, making it an ideal location for work programming and team development days.
If you are hoping to try an adventure sport for the first time or you are an experienced outdoor enthusiast, we will have a course to suit you. If you are responsible for organising a residential or team building programme, Tollymore can provide you, your group or your organisation with many opportunities, and programmes courses.
We have a range of meeting rooms and social areas, ranging from the 'Poulaphuca' Lounge, to the Cassy Lounge in the old building which has been completely refurbished. There are extensive changing and showering facilities for non residential groups, with secure lockers for storage of personal clothing when on activity!
Tollymore is more than a building! Tollymore is a resource for all who share a love of the outdoors, and who want to develop and improve skills, and coach others in a welcoming environment.
