Was okay, not many arcade games to play, more of a casino then for kids, if you have some time to waist it's good but could have more fun games to playv

Great for couples especially on a wet Dublin day. Fun basketball machines, teddy beat machines and coin games. Other reviews state people were robbed but I've never experienced or seen anything like this. Security are normally very good for not letting rough people in
