Enjoy the fun and get fit

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP)

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the water, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is your answer.

SUP is a fun and easy way to get on the water and explore the lakes, rivers, and oceans around you. You can use it as a way to get fit, as well as improve your balance and coordination. It’s also a great way to spend time with friends and family!

Stand-up Paddle Boarding is one of the finest ways to get out and enjoy the water. The sport originated as a traditional Hawaiian custom that was reintroduced to the globe in the mid-60s and has since been the fastest growing board sport in the world, partly thanks to the fact that it’s very easy to learn!

We rent SUPs at Lagoon Activity Centre, so whether you’re looking for something fun to do with your kids or want to be able to spend some quality time with your spouse or significant other, we’ve got you covered. You’ll be able to enjoy the stunning scenery of West Cork from a whole new perspective on our paddle boards.

Our staff will help you find the perfect board for your needs, so don’t be afraid to ask questions!

It's Like Surfing but Without the Waves!

The Lagoon Activity Centre has a range of paddle boards available for hire. They are designed for beginner to intermediate paddlers and are suitable for adults and children alike (with an adult).

If you’ve never tried paddle boarding before, don’t worry! We’ll go through some basic instructions before getting out on the water. Our instructors will be on hand throughout your session to give you advice, help with technique, or just chat about how much fun it is!

Our paddle boards are extremely sturdy, making it easy for anybody, regardless of their level of expertise, to learn to paddleboard. We’re pleased to share any tips we’ve learned along the road with you, too.

You’ll get wet, even if you’re an experienced paddle boarder, so leave your valuables and devices behind in the car or with us at our front desk.

The water is only 3 feet deep (does not apply to waterpark) and there are lifejackets provided for everyone.

From beginning to end Paul and the guys at the lagoon activity center were friendly and professional. The facilities are just fantastic and the floating waterpark was a huge hit with my children. I would highly recommend a visit, we’ll definitely be going back next summer when it reopens.

Visited the Lagoon during the Summer with my two kids and they had a ball. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Lovely coffee available too. Shout out to a young lad called Ciaran who went over and beyond to help us. We look forward

We had a great time here this weekend. My eldest happily went out kayaking and enjoyed the large open space. The rest of us did the water park which had so much to do and was really fun.

The experience was mixed. If you’re fit you’ll get lots from it . Less so if you’re less so. We went with our Autistic son who felt limited in the things he could because the access to certain obstacles involved going through others he couldn’t manage. Other reviewers have

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.

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

Our teenage son did this on his own and loved it. Well worth the money. We had great fun laughing when he fell in. I think 45 minutes is perfect. He was wrecked after it!😂

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!

It’s my third time in the Lagoona and it never disappoints. I came to do SUP and it was very enjoyable. Prices are also reasonable. Beautiful setting and so many other things to do around

I would likely recommend The Lagoon Activity Centre. The family really enjoyed the Total Wipeout style course. They were all smiley and tired afterwards. The coffee was good and the place is very well run and easy to navigate. It is a must see and do in West Cork!

Went to the Lagoon Activity Centre today for the first time and we had a ball. Went on the paddle boat and got a kayak each. Everything was very straight forward. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful and such amazing value. Will definitely come back for some more fun when I come to west cork again.
