Shannon-River Adventure is an outdoor adventure centre located beside Lough Bofin on the River Shannon at Rooskey, County Roscommon.
Kayaking is probably one of the most popular activities at Shannon-River Adventure. Visitors can have a fun taster session on one of the sit on top kayaks, or take things a little more seriously with one of the cockpit kayaks. Venues such as the tranquil waters of Lough Bofin and Lough Boderg are used. They are based on the River Shannon at Rooskey, County Roscommon.
Canoeing, or open boating as it is also known, is a little more relaxed than kayaking with usually two or three to a boat. On a relaxing open boat trip, you will get to visit some of the many islands surrounding the beautiful waters of the River Shannon and Kilglass Lakes.
Test your target skills with one of the oldest sports in the world. Traditional long bows and straw targets set on tripods are used. The archery shed at Shannon-River Adventure is sheltered from the elements, so that you can build your skills in a safe comfortable environment. Pier jumping is an all time favourite and gives great enjoyment to adults and children alike. It is a great way to get started with the adventure activities available at the centre.
There are a variety of team games and challenges, which can be tailored to suit all ages and groups.
