What others have said

Great Craic
A group of about 20 ladies went Coasteering with RA and stayed in the stones boutique hostel we had the best weekend. The Coasteering was great craic we laughed so much nothing like getting into the wild Atlantic sea to blow off the cobwebs, the scenery there is beautiful. The guys really looked after us so well and catered to all levels of fitness and ability! The hostel was a great place to stay walking distance to the town and lovely to have the communal area to chill in. The breakfast was a lovely selection of fresh fruit, croissants, yogurt etc. Claire was so helpful and really easy to deal with, I would highly recommend them!

Such a thrill!
We were a group of 9 girls on a hen party and we all had a fantastic time with our instructors Clare and Steve. Coasteering was such a thrill! It's a great combination of climbing, swimming, scrambling and some cliff jumps, and we'd constantly have different options of ways to get from A to B, so everyone got their preferred dose of action. We'd do it again - thanks for such a memorable day, Clare and Steve!
