Our Venues

 

1) WESTPORT ADVENTURE CENTRE

WHY WESTPORT? There are many compelling reasons why Westport is such an ideal base for our programmes and why we believe it to
be the best location for this purpose anywhere in Ireland. Lying at the western end of the East-West railway line, it is an easy town to access. Once you are here, you are in a prime position to explore and enjoy the surrounding wilderness. By locating our Centre in Westport, we feel we can offer you the perfect mix of great natural beauty in the hinterland, and the lively, cosmopolitan attractions of the town of Westport. You get the best of both worlds, all in one place.

Our Centre

Our Westport Centre is located in the wild and wooded grounds of the lovely Westport Woods Estate at the edge of Westport Town on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.We offer outstanding Hotel Standard facilities for both Teachers and Students including en-suite accommodation and a 17m swimming pool. All activities are either on-site or on nearby beaches and mountains. Even though the 12 acre site includes the Hotel, the area that Horizon has exclusive use of, is totally secure and separate from the rest of the Hotel Facility.
