Without doubt Ballyhass Lakes is a place I will return time and time again. It is fantastic for children aged 7 upwards and if you want something to entertain teenagers, you will no beat it. What blew me away was the value for money and there are so many options for all budgets. This is an activity that allows parents to have some fun with the kids which is why it is always top of my list to recommend for family days out in Cork.”
