Our Story


Corralea Activity Centre Ltd. is a family run business established since 1994. The centre is run by Marius, Isabelle and their children Brian, Patrick & Delphine.

Isabelle is French, she came over to Ireland many years ago to improve her English and met Marius in Belfast. They decided to move to the Fermanagh countryside (Marius’ home county) to bring up their young family. The Outdoors have always been at the centre of their lifestyle: watersports, caving, walking... After cycling for 10 months around West Africa, Marius and Isabelle settled to make the Outdoors their business. Marius began to run a mobile Activity Service in West Fermanagh. When the opportunity arose to purchase a 16 acres site with a few self-catering cottages on the shores of Upper Lough Macnean, they both embraced the idea. And so...Corralea Activity Centre was born.


The centre has grown over the years:

  • In 1997, an outdoor purpose built climbing wall (the first in Ireland) was added 

  • In 2000, we introduced the first Water trampoline which would grow over the years into Corralea Waterpark

  • A new wheelchair friendly cottage was built in 2003

  • In 2006, we worked with Green Box to obtain the EU Eco Flower certification, measures were taken to minimise our impact on the environment and reduce our energy use: solar panels, wood stoves, recycling waste, green activities

  • Nature trails and biking trails were developed in the forest

  • Most recently, a Forest Eco Spa was installed on the shores of the lake


Corralea now offers a wide range of eco friendly Outdoor activities to families, couples & groups of friends…as well as accommodation and packages.


With a strong family ethos and a genuine interest in the environment,  our passionate belief in sustainable and responsible tourism remains at the heart of the business with the youthful input of the new generation Corralea.
