What if it’s raining or bad weather?
The great Irish weather likes to keep us on our toes and if it is raining, you may well get wet, but you can have just as much fun in the rain as you can in the sun. Always prepare for the worst weather and have waterproofs and a hat with you, just in case. Some activities are sheltered from the elements, as we have climbing walls on the inside of our activity tower and wooden archery shelters. No refunds are given if you have booked and paid but choose not to go on the course due to bad weather. Sometimes Xtreme.ie courses have to be closed at short notice when bad weather (lightning, high winds, snow or ice) makes it unsafe for them to be used. If this happens we will try to contact you. This is made easier if mobile telephone numbers have been provided at the time of booking. If we have not been able to notify you of a course closure prior to your arrival, the course manager will be able to give you the latest update on likely re-opening times.
Do you sell food or drinks?
No. We recommend you bring your own water and snacks if you are here for a few hours. We are on the same location as Courtlough Shooting Grounds who run a Country Café onsite, however their opening times vary, please see www.courtlough.ie. You can contact them on 01-8413096.
