Planning a staycation in Northern Ireland? This water park on a lake is an absolute must

Fiona Frawley

We all have different requirements when it comes to a staycation but for me personally, the recipe for success is as follows: a lil bitta chilling, a rake of pints and most importantly, the obligatory day of water sports.

And if you’re all surfed out and looking for an epic day of water based fun you won’t forget in a hurry, look no further than The Lake Kilrea Waterpark in Coleraine.

Sorry but can you cope? This place looks absolutely unreal! Wading your way through this massive inflatable obstacle course with a never ending selection of stuff to jump off, climb up and see saw on is essential for any thrill seeker this summer. Ideal for stags, hens or just a gas day with your mates, also check out this slide which terrifies and intrigues me in equal amounts:

Seriously impressed with the moves this guy is pulling while sliding off, wouldn’t be me now. Belly flops all the way.

If you’re looking for something a bit more chilled there’s also kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddle boarding, and you can hit up the delish Tiny Coffee House for some refreshments after your adventures.

Book tickets and find out more about all the activities on offer here.
