Happy Monday Folks!
As Summer 2018 approaches, we know that many of you are going to be looking for some inspiration for your summer events. On that note, we thought it would be a good idea to take a look back over some of our events from Summer 2017 to give you some ideas, and to get us even more excited for the next few months. For Get West, last Summer was all go. Our weeks were filled with team building events, corporate Summer BBQ’s, family fun days and festival events, but it was a lot of fun, and with the great reaction we received, we can’t wait to do it all over again! With our dates booking up fast already, we are sure it is going to be another jam-packed Summer for us! So, whether you are a company, community event organiser or festival coordinator, to ensure a place on our busy calendar, get your bookings in early!
To get a better understanding of the different types of summer events we run, take a look below in the section most applicable to you!
For corporate summer events with Get West, we provide a variety of options, tailored to your needs. Whether that means a highly structured team building event, or a more relaxed set-up where you and your colleagues enjoy an evening of trying out our activities at their own pace, followed by a BBQ, the choice is up to you! Alongside these options, we also cater for corporate family fun days because we know how important it is to keep a healthy work/life balance, and this is a great way of encouraging that!
Since all of our activities are mobile, we can bring them on-site to your company, or to an alternative location nearby of your choice. Our qualified and experienced team will go out of their way to deliver your desired outcomes and to ensure your group’s every need is catered for.
Our summer events have proven to be a great success with many companies across Ireland including Three, Intel, Hermitage Clinic, Stryker, Novartis and Vistakon; so much so that some have confirmed further events with us for this summer!
Last Summer, our Great Adventure Challenge proved very popular, with many companies, such as Kerry Group and Viagogo, embracing the challenge. This type of team building event is both fun and competitive, as well as being highly inclusive. With the day set up in a structured fashion, our activities are assembled at various stations throughout the space, and teams move from activity to activity completing various physical and mental challenges set out by our staff members, with the overall aim being to successfully complete more challenges than the opposition.
Some of the challenges include:
- Testing your nerve for heights as you scale Ireland’s Tallest Mobile Climbing Wall
- Battling it out in an action-filled Archery Tag tournament
- Exercising the mind in a series of puzzle challenges
Of course, after all the activities have been completed and points added up, the day ends with a celebratory Awards Ceremony to announce the winners!
If you think this type of team building event would suit your company, please contact us to find out more.
We were delighted to run this package in the beautiful surroundings of the Fitzgerald’s Woodlands Hotel on a number of occasions last summer. Here are some images from these events:
Corporate Summer BBQ
Our Corporate Summer BBQ event package is less structured and more relaxed in nature. This was another popular option for companies last summer as it gave people the option to take part in activities at their leisure, while others just sat back, relaxed and watched them, whilst enjoying the atmosphere along with their food and drink.
As we have a lot of activities to offer, it’s up to you to choose which ones would best suit your team. The following are some of the activities that have proven to be quite popular in the past with this package:
- Water Walking Zorbs
- Ireland’s Tallest Mobile Climbing Wall
- Hoverball Archery
- Giant Garden Games (Giant Jenga, Giant Connect 4, etc)
- Foot Darts
It’s a pressure free environment where the only outcome we’re looking for is that you and your team have fun and enjoy yourselves!

Here are some of the companies who availed of this package last summer:
Corporate Family Fun Days
We were delighted to travel to Stryker and Vistakon last Summer to run a number of exciting activities for their employees, and their families. To be honest, I think we had as much fun as the kids did!
Our Family Fun Day activities are a great way to reward your team and involve their families. Incorporating both activity and adventure for the whole family, we can promise a fun-filled day to remember. As it is family oriented, it is suitable for all ages and abilities and, like with all our events, we can come on-site or to a suitable location nearby.
All activities are fully supervised by friendly, experienced staff who are well used to providing lots of support and encouragement – and not just to the little kids, but to the big kids too because, let’s face it, it’s usually us adults who need it to the most!
Some of our Family Fun Day activities include:
- Ireland’s Tallest Mobile Climbing Wall
- Water Zorbing
- Archery Tag
- Hoverball Archery
- Obstacle Course
To get the ins and outs of all our family-friendly activities, contact us for a brochure anytime.
Community & Festival Events
Last Summer, we were involved in many festivals and community events across the country, including: Groove Festival, Scariff Festival, Clarecastle Regatta and the Mid-Summer Arts Festival. These large scale events brought together huge volumes of people of all ages and backgrounds for a day of fun, adventure and challenge. So, if you have a festival or community event coming up and would like to avail of any of our mobile activities, please follow this link: Community and Festival Events
After all that, we hope you’re feeling inspired and excited for Summer 2018!! We certainly are, and we look forward to meeting many of you on the road over the summer months.
Thanks for reading and we hope you all have a lovely week, whether you’re working or lucky enough to be on Easter Holidays!
