West Cork Secret, hidden away between fields of cattle and beautifully landscaped gardens in Kilbrittain West Cork, offers the ultimate adventure and adrenalin rush for thrill seekers or simply a fun family day out. Orienteering, a well-laid out obstacle course, go-karting and even bumper balls all combine for an exhilarating outing.

The centre is well-equipped to deal with school groups and can combine all facilities to provide a great day out for children. At birthday parties, children will be taken through a maze of flowers and trees onto the obstacle course where they will be guided through different hurdles before whizzing down the enormous superslider.

There are go-karts, team building activities and a playing pitch to ensure they get to sample all that’s on offer before returning to the café for homemade pizza and refreshments.

For hen and stag parties, the centre is superbly located between the lively towns of Kinsale and Clonakilty and promises to get celebrations off to a great start.

Unique team building days are also on offer, where teamwork and communication are essential in conquering the Secret’s challenges, all within an exhilarating military atmosphere. From the assault course to the forest run you’re guaranteed to be smiling through the mud!

Encouragement, setting targets, motivation, character building and reward. It’s all a part of the experience,” explains proprietor Finbarr O’Mahony, who built this business up from a bare field.

Finbarr has transformed the 25-acre site into an explosion of colour and growth ranging from fruits and vegetables to exotic flowers and towering trees. The idea behind the project was originally an extensive garden centre but this has blossomed into an activity centre, educational resource and pizza cafe.

West Cork Secret is a 15 min drive from Bandon, 15 mins from Clonakilty and 20 mins from Kinsale. The WCS is sign posted from Timoleague road and from Kilbrittain village.
