The stunning new building is a state of the art and purpose built facility that simply takes your breath away. On entering the centre there is a 3 storey dining atrium supported by huge curved laminated timber columns. The centre now has 3 meeting rooms, a large lounge area, fully stocked equipment stores, a heated indoor pool for teaching kayak rolling skills, a new gym and climbing training wall, as well as the existing Hotrock Climbing wall. There are 20 twin bedrooms all furnished to the highest standard with en-suite facilities and tremendous views over the forest and Mourne Mountains. The new building is built to be very eco-friendly incorporating a biomass boiler system, solar panels and rain water recycling system.

Located at the edge of the Mournes and built to be in keeping with the environment, the centre provides training and development at all levels for a range of outdoor sports. The centre staff are some of the most experienced and well qualified in the United Kingdom and Ireland and are enthusiastic practitioners of the sports as well as tutors. The centre has partnered with the Mourne Heritage Trust to be a Mourne Information Point and can provide information on walking routes, access points and information on the flora and fauna of the Mourne Mountain environment.

After a great day out in the hills or on the water – being challenged by our great natural environment – it is great to come back to the centre for a hot shower, great food provided by an all new catering team and finish the day in front of the log burning stove with a cup of great coffee before retiring to a comfortable bed. Even if you’re not resident at the centre – why not call in to see it, gain information about the local area and have a cup of coffee and some of our chef’s famous flapjacks.
