Clay Shooting & Archery

A sport that really hits the mark

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

Clay Shooting participants must be over 16 years of age.

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

Archery on The Ashford Estate

Ready, aim, fire!

Enjoy this ancient sport played by kings and lords for centuries. All the family can participate simultaneously from ages seven upwards, and find out who is the champion! We use our 50m indoor centre when necessary so this activity is not weather dependent but please bring warm outdoor clothing, rain jacket and comfortable footwear. Set up according to the National British Grand Championship guidelines with rubber 3D targets and using arrows that are the only ones of their kind in Ireland, this activity takes place at the Equestrian Centre, and participants are required to be as tall as the bow.
