About Us

Our Mission:

“Observing the highest level of safety and customer care, it is our mission to provide outdoor adventure activities in a safe, controlled and supervised environment. Catering for the general public, UL staff and students we aim to facilitate a learning experience to develop and nurture adventure sport skills.”

  • Where is ULAC?

UL Adventure Centre is located only two miles from the picturesque town of Killaloe in East Clare. It is situated on the sheltered shores of Lough Derg where we have 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.

  • What is ULAC?

ULAC is owned and run by the University of Limerick Sports Department, it was purchased in 1996. As well as providing an excellent facility for the staff and students in UL we also cater all year round for the general public.

  • Why come to ULAC?

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. Each year we invest in new modern equipment; to complement this up to date equipment we employ very experienced and qualified staff who are experts in their fields and use safe, modern and exciting teaching and instructing methods. All of this of course offered at very competitive rates, but to truly understand our dedication to excellence you have got to come visit us!

  • Facilities

The center’s 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. We also have a kitchen where hot drinks and refreshments can be prepared and a small indoor dining area. For the more pleasant summer weather we have a barbeque/picnic area on site, which includes a large marquee and gazebo in case of showers. We also have a lecture room complete with up to date audio-visual lecturing facilities. All of our facilities and many of our activities are also wheelchair friendly.
