A timber fun maze, designed by world-renowned maze designer Adrian Fisher, opened at Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Centre in Rosscarbery on Saturday, December 21.

The new attraction, which is unique to Munster, will offer an exciting challenge to young and old. There are four impressive corner towers, which have commanding views over the maze, Rosscarbery town and out towards the Galley Head Lighthouse. The central tower acts as the finish to the maze and also as a place to look down on the path you have just completed and congratulate yourself. There are up and over bridges, which add to the confusing nature of a maze. Younger adventurers will be kept busy finding hidden objects and for the older explorer, there are puzzles to solve and finger mazes to work out as you travel through the maze.

Local timber experts, Hennessy Decking Ltd, won the contract for the construction of the maze.

Geoff and Mary Wycherly first opened Smuggler’s Cove Adventure Centre in 1992. In 2012, their son Geoff and his wife Aine took over the day-to-day running of the family business and in December of that year, the couple opened a pirate-themed adventure golf course adjoining the existing golf range.

With a successful 2013 season behind them, Geoff and Aine decided that a new attraction was in order to complement the existing adventure facilities.

“We felt that a timber fun maze would be the best addition to suit all the family,” explains Geoff.

Why not come visit the cafe overlooking Rosscarbery and its spectacular hinterland.
