Adventure Activities

Fota Island Adventure offers a wide range of outdoor activities in Cork catering for families, individuals, corporate retreats or school tours seeking a day of adrenaline filled excitement.


The environment of Fota Island Adventure is totally different from the norm, the woodlands are your playground and your targets are among the trees. Your instructors will fully equip and demonstrate how to use your bow and arrows. Then test your skills and become an excellent marksman

Combat Archery

Experience “The Hunger Games” in real life, but with foam tipped arrows. Fota Island Adventure operates under licence from Battlezone Archery, so the combat zone is one of the safest in Europe. We set up the combat zone to cater for the numbers booked in, up to a maximum of twenty people at any one time, so let the games begin


Begin your return to the wild with bushcraft and survival skills. You will learn a variety of new skills, including shelter building, fire starting and bush cooking. You may even pick up a bit of whittling, trapping and tool making to prepare for the outback way of life

Find the Sniper

If Fota Island Resort is your own private island, then “Find the Sniper” is the fort you build out of couch cushions in your front room. We have purpose made Ghillie suits that match our surroundings, so this is the ultimate hide and seek, military style. A game truly adored by all and provides memories for life

Obstacle Course 

The corner stone of Fota Island Adventure is its custom built obstacle course. This sounds like a half kilometre of hell but it is one of the most fun activities on the island. You can run through it in time trials or work as team taking the dead bob through it. Whatever your choice it is an absolute must as part of your visit.

Target Practice 

Set out to test your speed and agility. The objective is to hit your target, move, reposition, aim, fire and repeat. We use BB guns in a closed environment to ensure the safety of all concerned. This is an activity that recreates every action movie you have ever seen, without the danger.


Various orienteering trails run throughout the resort with different levels of difficulty. All of the equipment is provided in order to give you a fun filled adventure, but be warned, some of the trails have hidden tasks and all is not always what it seems.

Field Games 

Adventure can be quite tiring, so not everything has to be high octane. This is where the field games come in. Fota Island Adventure’s instructors have a vast array of purpose made games. Some require team work, some require problem solving and more just involve basic participation.
