Clay Shooting & Archery
Ashford Castle, Cong
Experience this Irish tradition, followed by kings and lords for centuries. Test your skill against a bolting rabbit, springing teal or wily woodcock. Or aim for the bull's eye on an archery target.
Beginners enjoy a pleasant introduction to the sport and a thorough grounding in the safety and etiquette of shooting in general. All the family can participate simultaneously from ages seven upwards, and find out who is the champion!
On arrival at the equestrian center where these activities take place, your instructor will guide you to the shooting range. There is a 50m indoor center when necessary so this activity is not weather dependent, but warm clothing, a rain jacket and comfortable footwear are recommended when outside.
