A Smashing Day Out

Once you try your hand at clay pigeon shooting, you’ll see why it is such a popular pastime of many of those who have stayed with us at Adare Manor. Something that can be enjoyed by everyone, whether beginner to marksman, this is a great chance to see what lies outside the walls of our estate and try your hand at something completely different.

The shooting ground is located a short distance from Adare Manor and is available to our guests. We are more than happy to arrange transportation for you to the fantastic facilities of Adare native, Eddie Daly, winner of the British Open Down the Line, Inter Provincial D.T.L. and coach of many leading shooting teams over the years. Eddie and his expert team have a host of different types of shooting for you to enjoy.

Ball Trap

A more complex form of trap shooting with targets travelling at a high speed before releasing their target with unknown direction up and down, left or right.

High Tower

Standing over 140 feet tall, these automatic traps work from a remote control that launch single or pair targets. Whether you love clays or game shooting, this will push you to your limits and make excellent practice for control and timing when shooting high pheasants back in your own field.

Bolting Rabbit

Using an automatic trap, the target skips and rolls along the ground making it quite a novelty amongst the shooters. This is also available to launch in pairs, for a bit more competitive fun between you and your friends.


There are five stands from which this target can be shot from. The target is on a fixed setting with the target going away from you and your weapon.

Spinning Teal

The clay pigeon target flies out of two automatic traps and straight up into the sky. Once it has peaked, it to begins to fall back down, ready for your bullet.

Clay pigeon shooting costs €35 per box of 25 clays for Adare Manor guests. You can expect to use two boxes of clays per person. Previous experience is not required and children aged 9 and over are welcome to participate.
