Todds Leap

One of the largest out­door ac­tiv­ity cen­tres on the is­land of Ire­land, Todds Leap, in Bal­ly­gaw­ley, is set in 100 acres of Co Ty­rone coun­try­side and of­fers vis­i­tors the chance to be­come ac­tion he­roes for the day. There is some­thing for all the fam­ily, from adren­a­line-fu­elled free fall­ing, driv­ing blind­fold, high­fly­ing on a zi­pline, paint­balling and body zorb­ing, to gi­ant swings, climb­ing walls and archery.

Gortin Glen For­est Park

This is a great place for a fam­ily day out, with lots of marked trails to lead you through the beau­ti­ful land­scape. Pack a pic­nic and fol­low the na­ture trail, stop­ping along the way at the in­for­ma­tion points that de­scribe the sur­round­ing habi­tats. Or climb to Ladies View to en­joy some spec­tac­u­lar vis­tas. Younger chil­dren will en­joy the play sculp­ture with its fam­ily of wooden deer.

An Crea­gan

The cen­tre also hosts reg­u­lar events in­clud­ing mu­sic and story-telling evenings and spe­cial school hol­i­day ac­tiv­i­ties.
