At the heart of Barretstown is our medieval, romantic castle with inspiring conference rooms, it is steeped in history and offers several bedrooms. In our courtyard, we have several meeting rooms and a theatre with full AV facilities.

We have just recently added a new, purpose-built accommodation block (Paul’s Hideout).

We also have a modern, multi-purpose activity centre (Jim’s Place – The Serious Fun Building) with a fully equipped board room and 600 m² hall, perfect for indoor team building activities.

With a 200 seater dining hall, we can also provide a catering service if required.

Professional Team Building – Discover the hidden energies of your team

Team building activities can revitalise employees, improve working relationships and increase motivation. The Barretstown staff are trained to deliver inspiring team building activities and games which most importantly, are fun for all. Your employees will build up deeper bonds by discovering more about each other.

Your group will get to experience our programme from a camper’s perspective, safely facilitated by our trained staff that have direct experience of working with children and adults at our camps. Your team will experience fun and laughter whilst working on problem solving, communication and leadership skills. Some of our popular team building activities include:

  • Half pipe challenge | Spiders Web | Sheep and Shepherd
  • Egg drop | Sheet volley ball | Evolution
  • Knot or not | Blindfolded hike…and many many more!

Our theme for our conference was “Energy for performance” and Barretstown certainly ensured everyone was energised. From the moment the conference started, with a simple ice breaker game, everyone knew this was going to be a different type of conference. Making use of all that Barretstown had to offer, everyone was catered for during activity time. Mitch’s team ensured no one was pushed out of their comfort zone but at the same time we had a number of people conquer their fears by climbing the high ropes or zip lining across the lake – having their colleagues cheer them on throughout was brilliant to be a part of. I believe the success of our most engaging conference was involving the Barretstown team as much as possible and for that we owe them a huge thank you! Emma Fay,  GlaxoSmithKline
