Went to Kilruddery a few weeks ago and stumbled upon the axe club, myself and my friend had a go, it was the best craic! So good we came back the following weekend with another friend, my sister and my mum! Matt and Heath were great, can’t wait to go back!!
We were first attracted by the novelty factor and because it looked like an interesting alternative to traditional types of outdoor corporate team building activity. Because it’s so different it was by no means clear who would be good at it. In fact, the athletic types who normally excel in a sporting environment were not necessarily the best. This put people on a new footing with each other and changed perspectives within the team.
We had a pretty large group on a stag and had an absolute blast. Matt and Heath were champions! Thanks guys!
