Family Activities

As Seen on BBC, RTÉ and TV3

Our family activities, as seen on TV3, BBC, RTE and Irish TV, offer loads of fun things to do for a family day out in Kilkenny. All our activities are family friendly and include Paintball (12+), Bubble Soccer, Splatball, Body Bowling, Foot Darts, Archery Darts and of course the ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Assault Course with it’s super fun water slide.

 

Located to the rear of The Orchard House Bar & Restaurant just off the M9 Motorway, we are 5 minutes from Kilkenny City Centre and a short drive from Waterford, Tipperary, Kildare and Carlow. If you should require overnight accommodation we can arrange that for you through our sister company Kilkenny Concierge.

 

All family activities are instructor led with a hands-on approach to ensure your family gets the most out of their time and thus making it one of the best things to do in Kilkenny.

 

Parents why not join your kids playing Bubble Soccer or get shot at in Splatball.Alternatively you can sit back and enjoy a coffee from our coffee dock while your family gets mucked up on the assault course.

 

So for a fun day out with your family in Kilkenny, book into the Kilkenny Activity Centre where they will have the “Best Time Ever”!

Forget Footgolf — Footdarts is the latest craze for Hen Parties in Kilkenny!

 

Armed with just your football skills step up to the board and see which of your group can get the highest score in “301”, “Around the Clock” or “Shangai”. If you want to get more competitive play team vs team in a game of Chase the Ace or Cricket! You also get the chance to test your Hurling skills in a game of Hurling Darts or try your hand at Archery Darts with our high-powered bows & Velcro arrows.

 

Now introducing the brilliant game of Body Bowling. While in a bubble, participants are rolled towards a set of inflatable pins to see who can knock the most. Just like regular bowling except you’re the ball! Let me hear you shout ‘STRIKE’!

 

That’s an exciting, stress free and super fun combo that all the family can enjoy!

Bubble soccer is another one of our great family activities for a day out in Kilkenny. Parents can join their kids as they bump into and knock each other over like human bumper cars while trying to show off their football skills. Players can do backflips, dives, rollies or crash right into each other. Anything goes in bubble soccer but watch out if you lose your balance or fall over or you might find yourself stranded upside down…

 

Bubble Soccer is a team game where both teams have to devise a game plan to outscore each other – not an easy task when you the opposition treat you like a human bumper car!

 

Voted as one of the Best Things to do in Kilkenny!
