Brought my five year-old here during a weekend in Dublin. Thankfully we’d booked ahead as when we arrived (on a Saturday morning) the session had sold out. It’s a ten-minute walk from Stillorgan tram stop, and there are a few cafes and places to eat...More

It's advisable to book in advance during school breaks because only a set number can go in per two hour session. Bit of a swizz charging adults €8 each though; the same as the kids. However I would have loved a place like this as...More
