Family Activity Holidays in Ireland

"The family that plays together stays together"

Here at the Donegal Adventure Centre we have lots of options for family activities.

We know not all families are the traditional mum, dad and 2.4 kids so we have affordable activities to suit all sorts of families whether it's mum and a load of kids or the full extended family with uncles, cousins, dads and grannies.

If you'd rather just drop the kids off there are lots of options on our camps pages  but here you can find out what we can offer the whole family:

Daily Surf Lessons

The DAC is open all year around and you can book lessons at almost any time (weather permitting ) in advance. But during school holidays and high season, we have "open sessions". This means anyone can book in you don't need minimum numbers or to arrange days in advance. Surf lessons run daily at 12pm and again at 2pm on Saturday.

Open Kayak Sessions

Like the Surf lessons we have regular kayak sessions on beautiful Lough Melvin during the holidays.

  • Tuesday 1:30 & 5pm
  • Thursday 1.30pm & Sundays 2pm
  • Thursday 1.30pm & Sundays 2pm

Private Family Lessons

Want to stick to yourselves? No problem we've got you covered there too. You can arrange lessons for just your family.

This is particularly suitable when there may be a mix of abilities or ages, where someone may need a bit more time or help with wetsuits or equipment. Or, if a younger person would love to go along with their big siblings but a parent would like to go too in case it's a bit too tiring or overwhelming.

This way you don't have to worry about holding anyone up or indeed anyone delaying you. Great where there is one adult and a few children or even vice versa contact us on 071 984 2418 (+353719842418 from outside the Republic) or email  to find out more.

Minimum numbers do apply but with groups it's often much better value to arrange a private lesson.
