Boyne Valley Activities Meath

boyne valley activities

It is becoming more and more obvious that children today need to get out and get some more exercise. Leave the couch and the play station behind and get out in to the great outdoors and get some fresh air into their lungs. More and more parents are contacting Boyne Valley Activities looking to book birthday parties in order to let the kids experience activities that they might someday follow on as a hobby.

Boyne Valley Activities have lots to do but the most popular by far is the kayaking party. Suitable for both boys and girls the kids have an absolute ball as the instructors insist on making this as fun filled as possible. While safety is at the fore front of all activities the birthday parties tend to be as much messing as we can physically  cram into a couple of hours.

Typically, the birthday boy/girl will go free and it cost 20pp after that. These are a hectic couple of hours and the kids will be exhausted afterwards (always nice to know for mum who is hosting the after party!!)
