Wildlands, a unique adventure and accommodation offering overlooking Ballyquirke Lake in Moycullen has recently announced a soft opening date of 7 August 2020. Nestled at the gateway to Connemara, Wildlands will be one of Ireland’s leading adventure offerings and opens with plenty of exciting activities for customers of all ages including:
Zip ‘n’ Trek, Zip ‘n’ Trek Junior, Fun Walls, Disc Golf, Bushcraft, Archery, Fairy Trails, Wildlands Walks, Adventure Play, Sports Hall, Yoga & Wellness
The show piece outdoor activity is the ‘Zip ‘n’ Trek’ course and tower, constructed last year by Swiss based world leaders in the design of high line zip courses, Altus. The finished product is up there with the best zip lining and aerial trekking courses in Ireland, standing 14 metres high with 10 zip lines and 4 circuits of varying levels of difficultly. A stand alone Zip ‘n’ Trek junior course for the mini Tarzan and Janes is sure to be a hit, along with the eye-catching Fun Walls indoor climbing arena built by the renowned manufacturer Walltopia is a first of its kind in the West.
First breaking ground in Spring 2018, the adventure hub development, a 2500 square metre building, and luxurious cabins was constructed by local suppliers and tradesmen.
The food offering will be through a custom-fitted Volkswagen, the Wildlands Wagon, offering locally sourced wholesome sambos and treats supplied by award-winning Corrib House Tea Rooms. The Olive Tree Kitchen, a 150-seater restaurant which will be open to the public, unique cabins accommodation and plenty more exciting activities such as Baile Beag, Tag Archery and Challenge Rooms are due to follow soon.
Safety, sustainability and fun underpin everything at Wildlands explained one of the owners. The owners have a wealth of experience between them in delivering first-class adventure, food and hospitality offerings. Unique and special it will certainly be, and not just for kids. With planning permission just recently granted by An Bord Pleanala for additional cabins, and a second phase at design stage for additional activities, the sky really is the limit at Wildlands.
