"Dermot & Monica are probably 2 of the nicest people you could meet. My boys attended their recent Easter Adventure camp, to say they enjoyed it is an understatement. From feeding lambs to trekking, to forest activities, shelter building, building fires, toasting marshmallows, tug of war, games, barbecue, etc. This camp is situated in the most picturesque part of Co. Sligo, nestled in the Ox mountains, close to a Mass Rock. This camp is brilliant value for money & I would recommend it to parents for Birthday parties, school tours, summer & Easter camps, scouting groups. They have facilities for B & B, & camping. We are lucky to have this on our doorstep. A true gem in Co. Sligo"

REVIEW'S FROM RECENT CUSTOMER 

"Thank you very much from the 3rd Westmeath Cubs for your hospitality and for doing so much to make our stay so memorable. "

"Our Mystery tour on Thursday evening brought us to The Ox Mountain Adventure Camp at Masshill outside Tubbercurry. What a fantastic night our youths and leaders had with lots of fun activities out and about through the forest. On their return they enjoyed a well earned BBQ before heading out into the darkness of the night once again on another guided trail. A blazing camp fire awaited them on return where everyone had fun roasting marshmallows with Chocolate digestives and where we enjoyed a sing song! More laughs in the Adventure Camp shed where everyone sat around on sofas or bunk beds to watch a video of all their activities of the night. They were presented with their end of year certificates and went home exhausted after an amazing night of Adventure! A huge thank you to Dermot and Monica and all involved in making their night such fun. It was a perfect end to a wonderful year in a magnificent scenic setting. A must for all clubs to look into!   "
