Things to do
Shannon River Camping and Glamping is based at Shannon River Adventure Centre where we have water and land activities to suit families, groups, and kids. So, whether it's a fun family break your looking for, or an adventurous group getaway, or somewhere to occupy the kids while you explore the local surroundings, we are the place to come. At Shannon River Adventure, we run Summer Camps during July and August. They run Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 4.00pm at very reasonable daily and/or weekly rates. The action-packed Kids Camps and Teen Camps are sure to please and tire out the kids!
