Great place for the kids. Small enough that you can keep an eye on them but big enough for them to run around and have fun. Food is nice and the staff are nice but.......the place is so so dirty! The play area for the under 4's is crawling with the dirt. There looks like what is years of dirt... More

Great place to take the kids on a rainy day. Lots to do for all ages. Didn't have food but it looked good. It gets very busy especially if a birthday party is on. They do have staff watching to make sure the kids don't get too rough or start climbing up the slides etc. It's €8 per child. Worth... More

We ventured here with our 14 month old daughter & she loved it. It was free for her because she was not yet walking. We had some food here and it's great value. We enjoyed a toasted sandwich with chips. Baby had a baked potato and beans

A standard play gym but great for wet days. Areas for toddlers and bigger children. Hard to find so do ask locals!

Just back from hols in France, and had driven as fast as legally possible from the boat from in Rosslare to make the match. I dropped my wife and a bag or two at home along the way.... More
