Fun Ideas for Team Building in the North West of Ireland

Often when the team leader mentions its time to do some “team building” a whole lot of eye-rolling ensues. Sure, a lot of typical team building exercises can be boring and even sometimes straight-up humiliating! So how is it done right?

Well, here at The Courtyard Apartments in Lovely Leitrim, we’ve compiled a list of team building activities available in the North West of Ireland that will actually have the whole team bonding and having a genuinely good time.

All of the activities below can be booked as part of our great value accommodation packages.

Town Treasure Hunt

Split into mini teams and take on the town for a fun treasure hunt full of hilarious challenges. This is a great option to refresh the whole team, getting everyone moving, chatting and laughing together.

The Cube Challenge

Reckon your team is ready to take on The Cube? The Cube Challenge is a popular team building afternoon out, based on the concept of the TV Gameshow. There’ll only be one winner as your teams battle to complete a series of deceptively simple-looking tasks in record times.

Dinner & Mini Cruise

For a change of scenery, why not reward the team with dinner and a Moon River cruise on the River Shannon? After a meal out at Murtagh’s restaurant, the Moon River cruise will depart with your team from the quayside in Carrick-on-Shannon. The cruise comes complete with luxury saloon, dance floor, entertainment and a dedicated crew.

The Boda Borg

A Boda what? The Boda Borg is a Swedish concept, unique to its home at Lough Key in County Roscommon, that will truly put your team to the test. This two-storey, 47-room puzzle relies on your team’s genius, hard-work, speed and ability to work together to complete the challenge.

Old School Sports Day

You could opt to take the whole team for a trip down memory lane with an old-style School Sports Day. This package includes all the sports and activities from back in your school days and is likely to bring out the competitive streak in all.

Water Sports

You can “work together” all you like on this one but you’ll probably still end up in the water! Get the team together for a water sports package where the team can kayak, raft or even try some banana boating. This action-filled adventure package is bound to stay with the team for years to come.

Murder Mystery

The Murder Mystery is a classic outing filled with intrigue, excitement and well… murder! This activity will get your teams interacting like they never have before as they endeavour to unravel the mystery plot.

Laughter Yoga

Has the team been a bit stressed out lately? A spot of Laughter Yoga might be just the ticket to get everyone back in a happy and chilled mood. Trust us, this one will not fail to have the whole team in stitches – perfect for building team spirit.

Country Pursuits

Have your team really soaking in the outdoors with a Country Pursuits package, including clay pigeon shooting, air rifling, archery and falconry. This will be a unique and special day out for the whole team that is also likely to stir some healthy competition!


There’s nothing like a competitive battle to foster some team building. This adrenaline-fuelled event will certainly lift the team’s spirits. It’s not only great fun but also a great opportunity to exercise those strategy and teamworking skills!
