UL Sport Adventure Centre


ULAC is located only two miles from the picturesque town of Killaloe in East Clare a 20minute drive from Campus Holidays self-catering accommodation. It is situated on the sheltered shores of Lough Derg with access to one of Ireland’s cleanest and friendliest inland waterways. Rising from the lake the wooded hillsides of Crag Hill provide a perfect environment for many of our land-based activities.


ULAC offers a perfect location for all your outdoor needs. All our activities are in close proximity so no long bus journeys from the centre to the activities, you can get straight from the water into a hot shower. The centres lakeside location provides us with easy access to the water and our purpose built piers and slipways provide a modern and safe environment for all our water based activities. The centre itself has heated changing facilities and hot showers for ladies and gents as well as the luxury of a sauna. All facilities and many activities are also wheelchair friendly.


With both closed cockpits and sit on top kayaks experience what it is like to see some of Lough Derg by kayak. Participants can be taught basic introduction strokes right up to more advanced techniques needed for tackling white water. They also throw in a kayak game or two just for the fun.

Take to the water in a dinghy sailing boat! Enjoy learning under the eye of an experienced instructor who will guide you from total beginner to advanced expert! Our 07 fleet is made up of the RS Visions and Feva's and our brand new Phileas Ludic day sailing boat. Using the ISA syllabus you will enjoy the learning experience in total safety.

Or open boating as it’s also known is a little more relaxed than Kayaking with usually 2/3 to a boat. The Open / Canadian canoe is immediately distinguishable from a kayak because it is paddled using a single bladed paddle. On a relaxing open boat trip you will get to visit some of the many islands surrounding the beautiful waters of Lough Derg and all with company.

High Ropes
ULAC is home to Munster’s First High Ropes Course. The course is a series of physical adventure challenges requiring a combination of teamwork skills and individual commitment. This aerial obstacle course consists of six individual elements that focus on the individual achievements of participants as they challenge themselves. Physical Safety is ensured through the use of a belay system with ropes, carabineers, harnesses and specialised hardware. With the reassurance of our professionally trained facilitators, every event is about perceived versus actual risk, thus emphasising our policy of ‘Challenge by Choice’.
