Clay Shooting & Archery

Test your skill

The sporting clay range features targets that simulate the game typical of this region. Beginners will enjoy a comprehensive introduction to the sport and a thorough grounding in the safety and etiquette of shooting. You’ll meet at the Equestrian Centre to join your instructor who will then direct you to the shooting range.

Clay Shooting participants must be over 16 years of age.

Clay Pigeon Shooting at Ashford Castle
Archery on The Ashford Estate

Take fire!

All the family can participate simultaneously from ages seven upwards, and enjoy a friendly archery competition - an ancient sport played by kings and lords for centuries. We use our 50m indoor centre when necessary so this activity is not weather dependent. Please bring warm outdoor clothing, rain jacket and comfortable footwear. This activity takes place at the Equestrian Centre, and participants are required to be as tall as the bow.

Please note: Advance bookings are highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
