What else can you do when you are visiting Clearsky Adventure Centre?
Make the most of your day in Castle Ward Estate – it boasts an 800 acre estate with many walking and cycling paths laid out to help you explore these stunning grounds.

Mansion House Guided Tours
Of course, as the centre is set on Castle Ward Demesne, don’t forget the stunning 18th century Mansion itself. Marvel at the quirky mid-Georgian mansion, home to the Ward family since the 16th century. An architectural curiosity, it is built in the distinctly different styles of gothic and classical. Visit the Victorian Past Times Centre where children can also dress up and play with period toys.

Educational Wildlife Experiential Centre
It is a jungle out there! Castle Ward Estate attracts an abundance of wildlife both on land and on the shores of Strangford Lough on Northern Irelands East Coast. As a result an Educational Wildlife Experiential Centre is onsite offering access to information on a wide range of natural habitats, species, birds and mammals. This, along with Clearsky Adventure Centre makes the ideal spot for a fun educational field trip!

Kiddies Adventure Playground
We have an onsite adventure playground suitable for the tots – featuring swings, slides, miniature zip line and climbing frames – a destination for the whole family to have a day of fun.

On-site Shops  Take full advantage of the onsite Book, Visitor Souvenir and Gift Shops. Purchase a little something to remind you of your great day out at Clearsky Adventure Centre and Castle Ward.

On-site Tearoom
Take a break for a cuppa, and catch your breath at the courtyards tearoom – before moving onto the next adventure of your day.
