Get West: An A-Z of our Activities

By March 6, 2018 Corporate Events

 

Activities 1

Hello Everyone!
Today’s blog is going to be all about how Get West grew as a company, and where we are today! So to kick off, Get West initially started as a kayaking business, doing tours of Limerick City and Learn to Kayak sessions on the River Shannon and, of course, we are still sticking to our roots and continuing with those great activities, but today Get West is much more than that!

Who are we?

 

Activities 2

Get West is an Adventure Tourism and Corporate Events & Team Building company that caters for a wide range of markets in a variety of locations due to our mobile activities. We firmly believe that “You don’t stop playing because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing” and, as such, our aim is to deliver indoor and outdoor activity experiences that are fun, engaging, inclusive and safe, guaranteeing minimum fuss and maximum enjoyment!

What do we do?

School Adventure Days

Activities 17Activities 18Activities 19Activities 20

What makes our School Adventure Days unique is that you don’t have to book a bus and travel to us; we travel to you. We roll up with our fun & exciting activities and turn the school grounds into an adventure centre. Imagine looking out the classroom window and seeing Ireland’s Tallest Mobile Climbing Wall parked up outside waiting for you to climb to the top; well we can make that daydream a reality. Our School Adventure Days are ideal as a student bonding experience at the start of the year, as a unique element of the TY activity programme or even as a novel way to reward students for class achievements. Our activities not only encourage individual and group development, but also help with building confidence and mental agility. Our on-site days are best suited to large numbers of students. With half day & full day options to choose from, we can promise this is one school day the students won’t forget!

Escape Limerick 

A recent development at Get West was the establishment of its sister company Escape Limerick, a series of escape rooms, located in the old Thomond Cinema in Limerick City’s Medieval Quarter, just up the street from King John’s Castle. Escape Rooms have proven immensely popular both nationally and internationally as a team building experience, as well as being very popular with tourists and locals alike. Open over 6 months now, they are proving to be very popular with corporate groups, both local and visiting, as well as both national and international tourists to the city.
