Great couple of hours spent at Imaginosity with a 8, 5 and 3 year old. It's like an educational play centre. Children all enjoyed and the 2 hour time block is long enough.

Enjoyed our visit but thought there could be a little more. Was more of a glorified play Centre than a children’s museum also very badly signposted!

Before you get to the entrance the environment is not inspiring with some half-built concrete skeletons from the end of the Celtic Tiger. You can't blame Imaginosity for that, but it doesn't help. The few staff that were there were very friendly but there weren't...More
