Hello! Welcome to Clearsky Adventure Centre Northern Ireland (Castle Ward)

Our outdoor pursuits centre is situated in the stunning Castle Ward Estate on the shoreline of Strangford Lough (just 40 minutes from Belfast, Downpatrick in Northern Ireland).

In 2009 and 2010 we were lucky enough to have the BAFTA award winning Game of Thrones filmed in our castle courtyard. Yes….really….the HBO Mega TV Show Game of Thrones (dubbed to get bigger than Lord of the Rings) was actually filmed here ‘on location’ at our centre! As you drive down through the estate you soon realise why the HBO film location scouts chose here; the centres medieval walls and castle clock tower, the beautiful surrounding landscapes and far-reaching views across the water; it was the perfect place to create ‘Winterfell’ – home of the Stark family.

With over 20 exciting activities to choose from, we have something for everyone whether you are 4 or 104 years old! Things to do in Down and Adventure Northern Ireland

You can:
