Pedal Boats

Easy and safe fun on the water

perfect for the whole family

Pedal Boats at the Lagoon Activity Centre.

Pedal boats are a great way to spend some time on the water. Whether you’re looking to get some exercise or just relax, our pedal boats are perfect for all ages!

You may be wondering: “How do I ride this thing?” Well, it’s easy! Just sit down and start pedaling. The boat will move forward, and you can steer by turning the rudder. (Don’t worry—we provide an instructor who will show you how!)

We highly recommend pedal boats for anybody new to watersports, is apprehensive about the water, or is simply looking for a low-stress, relaxing time on the lake!

These boats are almost impossible to capsize, which makes them a great choice for beginners. In addition, they are exceedingly easy to operate. If you know how to ride a bicycle, you already have the skills necessary to run a pedal boat. Their motion is controlled by pedaling in either way, so they may travel either forward or backward. The boat’s stern rudder is controlled by a steering lever in the centre of the vessel.

The Lagoon in Rosscarbery is sheltered, making the water relatively tranquil and it is only 3 feet deep in most places (does not apply to waterpark).

Pedal Away Your Worries!

Pedal away your worries and enjoy the serenity of the lagoon with a pedal boat. This activity is fun for all ages and is a great way to spend time with family and friends.

A great way to get around on the water and see the sights. Our Pedal Boats are ideal for all ages and require just a gentle push off from shore to get you out of the dock area. No need for experience or worry about capsizing, once you get going, it’s smooth sailing!

The pedal boats are a fun way to spend a few hours on the water, whether it’s as part of a family day out or with friends.

They are available for rent during daylight hours, and we have a variety of boats to choose from. We have a boat that can hold up to 4 people, so bring your friends and family along for the ride!

Pedal boating is fun! Imagine cruising through the lagoon on a hot summer’s day. Suitable for all ages, simply turn up and go right out onto the water. Ideal for families with small children, or groups who want to spend some time on the water without the need for a high skill level.

Enjoyed a great family day out at The Lagoon today! Well run, organised, safe fun on the water. We'll definitely be back again! The big slide was my favourite!!

Great fun, well run and very safe! Staff were very friendly. Facilities were good also. Even a picnic area and some crepes etc available there.

Fun facilities and a lovely relaxed atmosphere at the centre. Very friendly staff at the centre base. Aqua park was fun but very daunting. Be prepared for essentially a slippery bouncy castle. Those in charge of the Aquapark we very unhelpful, bordering on rude. Myself and others were the ones pulling the dingy closer to the inflatable to help people on and off while they looked on. No positive interaction, just looked constantly bored by our existence and us possibly being in need of a hand. Nothing to wipe the very many cuts I witnessed on the way back. Those on shore were very helpful. Please remember that it is all of our first time on a wobbly, slippery inflatable in deep water that most of us are only on to keep out children happy. Our old bodies ache. It costs nothing to give us a fake smile and a hand onto wobbly polyethylene. In fact, it would go a really long way. You catch more flies with honey then with vinegar. Still had a great time though!

We have just spent the most fantastic morning at the Lagoon , first did some kayaking and then on to the inflatables , my 11 year old had a ball . Would def recommend here if you are doing a staycation in cork . Very well organised , and the great thing is the weather doesn’t matter . 👍

A win win for parents and teenagers … Having two teenagers who are reluctant to go on holidays with their parents is a challenge but we could not recommend the Lagoon Activity Centre more - 1st day did water park and we were back a second day to race parents in kayaks across the

Really, really enjoyable experience at the Lagoon. Wetsuits and life jackets provided, with both changing rooms and showers (for rinsing off only) available. Staff at reception and on the boat were very friendly and chatty. The course was very fun, and the 45 minute time was

Had a fantastic day out as usual, our annual visit to the lagoon! Changing rooms and toliets spotless, staff amazing and very helpful. We did the waterpark which requires a good level of fitness but thats clearly started in the terms and conditions,very detailed safety talk, lifeguards on the ball as per usual. Overall a fantastic day out , we will most definitely be back, looking forward to next year already. nHighly recommend.

The water park is great fun for the whole family. The kids loved it....and the daddy loved it. The Iceberg is a hard climb but totally worth it. We're living locally and have gone a couple of times....and will be back.

Staff were so helpful and friendly. Boys were aged between 9 and 11 years in our group. They truly enjoyed every minute. Only complaint they had was they wanted more time for their session. Highly recommended!!!

Great family day out. The centre is run very well. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We've done a few of these water activities and this one is by far out favourite. You take a short boat ride out to it which was very exciting for the kids also. Toilet facilities are very clean and plenty of hand sanitizer. The whole experience from start to finish was fantastic. We'll definitely be returning. Would highly recommend. Our kids are 13 and 11.

Great place for both adults and children, wetsuit available if you done bring your own, life jackets also, the lagoon is on about 3/4 foot deep so safe for all type of swimmers, water is salty (seems maybe dirty and stagnant to me but I'm no water expert). Big area for running around on and plenty of obstacles to tackle and then the slides

We went as a family (4 kids ages 16, 14, 6 and 4, and 2 adults) a day out to celebrate the 16th birthday! It's hard to impress the older lads, but they thoroughly enjoyed this! They went on the water park, we watched for a while before bringing the smallies out on a pedal boat.

Absolutely enjoyed this activity centre, it's even great for those people who have a fear of water or can't swim, cos the water is only 3ft deep. So safe enough. Definitely go on this again, loads of fun to be had, in good weather and bad. Brilliant fun

Booked for family of 4 as part of our holiday in West Cork and Paul the manager was very accommodating when we had a problem with the time we booked. We had great fun on the inflatables…kids loved the slide and the hamster wheel! There are lovely warm showers after too. Staff were great. We had previously been as a few times and and we will definitely be back again…it doesn’t get old!

This activity centre is so much fun, and easy to find in Roscarbery! The staff were wonderful and friendly. Life jackets are supplied, and wetsuits are available if you need them. There are showers and restrooms available, and food to purchase also. The Lagoon Activity Centre is a great laugh. It's a bit on the slippy side, so be prepared to fall into the water if you're walking or running too fast! The water is salty, and while it's around 3ft deep in some places, it's much deeper in other parts. You can also hire out peddle boats, stand up paddle boards and kayaks also. A great activity centre for both adults and kids! 5 out of 5!!

Kids ages 8-12 enjoyed it, adult thought it was good. The only negative is that groups tend to take over a session too much. There was a group of about 10 teens and our kids couldn’t get on certain things (e.g. rotator) as the group took it over for most of the session. Lifeguard should break this kind of hoarding up. The place is run by very young staff (teens), punctual and polite but I do wonder how they would cope if a serious incident occurred. Overall 4 happy people, but not racing back

Book early. Always a hoot. For all ages! I'm early 50s and go with the teenagers every summer. The new pyramid is a testing climb but worth it. I started with this and got the wetting out of the way early on! Could do with clearing out of the pond scum which accumulates in two
