Escape the everyday and experience the relaxing activity of Paddle Boarding under the watchful eye of our friendly Guides amidst the historic Castlewellan Forest Park in the heart of the Mourne Gullion Strangford Geopark. With no experience necessary we'll supply you with all the equipment and skills to get the absolute most out of your time on the water and provide a great start to one of life's journeys.

Explore the stunning Castlewellan Lake, situated beneath the impressive Castle once renowned for its aristocratic parties while in the hands of Lord & Lady Annesley. With an abundance of heritage, be it the place or the people, the stories are immense and will take you on a journey through some of the most exciting stages in not just Irish but world history.
