Our Venues

 

1) Westport adventure Centre

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.

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.

FACILITIES:

For Students

  • 24 hour supervision with trained Horizon on-duty Night Staff ensuring that students are kept safely supervised at all times
  • All en-suite accommodation in two and four bedded rooms
  • Full Dining and Indoor Recreational Facilities for Students

  • Climbing Tower, Archery, Aeroball etc. Surfing and Hill Walking are 20 minutes drive away from the centre

Teacher Care

  • Separate en-suite sleeping and dining facilities for Visiting Teachers
  • Leisure Centre, Spa and Complimentary Treatments available for Teachers
  • For Teachers or Leaders who may wish to get some quiet time away while we supervise your group, the Centre is within walking distance of the Town Centre and the Quay area with its famous array of Pubs and Restaurants

EVENING ENTERTAINMENT PROGRAMME:

Guests are kept busy and active in supervised instructional activities during the day and into the early evening – but we don’t just stop there.

Our evening schedule features our famous Entertainment Programme, and guests are left to feel that there simply aren’t enough hours in the day. Our talented and creative staff ensure the programme has just the right mix of excitement
and winding-down activities before bedtime.

  • NEW Aeroball
