Win a post-lockdown trip for two to take on the Reeks District Big Five Challenge

Take on all of the Big Five including:


Relax in the evenings with a stay in historic Carrig Country House  (above), one of the most beautiful hideaways in Ireland, on the shores of Caragh Lake, and enjoy all main meals including breakfast at Carrig, dinners at Sol Y Sombra, Carrig and Ard Na Sidhe Country House, whiskey tasting at Kingston’s Bar & Townhouse, plus a packed lunch from Jacks Bakery, pub lunch at Bunkers Bar and Restaurant and afternoon tea at Ard Na Sidhe.

Car hire is also included. Winners will need to make their own way to the Reeks District.


We know you can’t get out at the moment and may be missing the Great Outdoors, so we’ve launched a fun competition to fill the gap.

We asked some of our key Adventurers to come up with ways they could enjoy their activities during lockdown as you can see in our video.

Now we’d like you to do the same. For the chance to win our big prize, simply make a short edited film of how YOU’D do the Big Five under lockdown, post the clip on your Facebook feed and tag us. Then encourage your friends to like and share.

The top 10 clips with the most likes and shares will then be put to our participating adventure providers. Each judge will mark each of the 10 videos on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Fun
  • Film technique (sound, image quality etc)

Scores will be awarded from a maximum of 10 in each category with a maximum score of 30 per judge. The five videos with the highest average score will proceed to a final public vote on the Reeks District Facebook page.

The one with the most likes and shares will then win the grand prize of the Ultimate Big Five Challenge Experience Trip to the Reeks District. All participating entries to the competition will receive a 10% discount when booking an activity at our participating adventure outlets until May 1, 2021.
