Athlone Castle

At Baysports you can find Athlone Castle a multifunctional jumping platform and a smaller slide for younger children.

Round Tower Slide

Standing alone and weighing just over two tons in weight is the Round Tower Slide. Just as the original round towers, built hundreds of years ago by the ancient Irish monastic monks were once the tallest manmade structures in Ireland. The Baysports Round Tower Slide holds the Guinness World Record as the tallest floating slide in the world.

The Isle of Saints and Scholars

The newest addition to Baysports is The Isle of Saints and Scholars, boasting five huge slides, its own round tower, a Viking helmet and presided over by a bishop and his miter. It’s not quite as complex as the real Isle of saints and scholars but certainly a lot more fun.

Tír na nÓg

Just like its namesake you have to swim out to reach this land however while it is uncertain if reaching it will stop you aging it is certain that you will never get bored while you are there.
