Sports and Wellness



From first thing in the morning until last thing at night, Kaleidoscope is packed full of sports, wellness, activities and fun for Kaleidoscopers of all ages!

No matter what you like to do, there’s something fun for you.

You could kickstart your day with a lovely endorphin rush with a 5km morning run, departing from the Front Lawn each day. And you could end your evening by feeling your feet, hands and face on the ground with a gorgeous morning family meditation session. Be as calm as a cat or a cow with a morning yoga session on the Front Lawn, and then slip to the Back Lawn for a hot tub or massage treatment. Get centred with a flowing and relaxing Tai Chi session in the Walled Garden. And chuckle yourself all the way into the evening with our Laughter Yoga session, once you’ve banged the bongos bigtime in our Drumming Workshops! Phewee!

Sound too zen? Fancy turning it up a notch or ten?

Great news!

You can simultaneously jump up and get down at the WORLD’S LARGEST BOUNCY CASTLE - yep you read that right! Largest! In the world! It’s huge!

Not tired yet?

Okey dokey!

You could embark on a family adventure to The Avon, where professionally managed adventure sports are at your fingertips including kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, boat trips, zip lining, climbing, archery, pedal push go-karting and a 12km greenway cycle.

That’s right!

One thing - it’s very important to note that some activities have a limited capacity and booking is essential. Activities can be booked through this link here, you’ll also find all details and costs through the link.  If you wish to take part in activities at The Avon, a free return shuttle bus will be operational from the Coach Parking Area (right next to the Birds of Prey) from 8.30am to 6pm.

What??? You’re still not tired? OK!

Behind the Main Stage, you’ll find 3 lined playing fields where you can play all the Soccer, GAA and Rugby you’ve ever dreamed of. They’ll have on-pitch security, first aid, coaches to supervise, water and even a ball exchange, so it’s Easy Street all round. There will also be a few bench areas around the pitches, so you can bring your biggest fans to chant your name from the seats. Come along for a kickabout and a lot of fun … maybe even an adhoc game or two!

Keep an eye out on the fields also, as we’ll be hosting games for Barretstown throughout the weekend. Bring your sack of spuds A-game to the field, you got this!

The pitches are easily accessed on the existing walking / running trail you’ll find on your programme.

And that’s not all … Dirt Monkeys is an adrenaline packed freestyle skate show, where stunts are carried out that contradict the laws of gravity! Come to see backflips, whips and squillions of other tricks performed by the most talented riders of the Irish freestyle scene, with performances taking place at various times throughout the weekend.

Skate’s up, dudes!
