Summer Tubing Park

Smugglers Cove is home to Ireland’s first Tubing Park, with 4 tracks varying from 50 to 100 meters.

The Summer Tubing Park at Smugglers Cove is sure to be a fun and adrenaline filled day out. Tubing is done by sitting in snow tubes and careering along 4 fast tracks on artificial snow surface. The gentle parabolic turn track to begin with which finishes over a passover bridge. There are the two straight speed runs for riders to race to the end. These are steep and fast tracks which pass under the bridge before coming to a safe stop at the end. 
The fourth and steepest run is the thrilling Tubby Jump which finishes with a giant leap into a freestyle ski bag. This is not for the faint hearted and a big challenge for riders of all ages.
