I've been to a lot of play cafes and Panda stands out as the biggest, cleanest and most welcoming of them all. If you have little kids with you, it's important you feel they are safe and in all the places I've been Panda is the best one for entertaining kids, keeping it clean and making sure rough behaviour is...

He really enjoyed it, There is a ball pit, princess wendyhouse, Castle wendy house. Loads of rise on toys, a ride on... More

We went to the one in Ballsbridge with our 1 yr old. Lots of toys for him to explore and play with . Great to be able to feed him there and then let him off. We stayed close behind him to make sure he was ok and behaved, as did the other parents, we cant wait to go back.... More

I was in the Donnybrook Panda play cafe on Sunday 14th September and one of the staff, while setting up for a kids party, was walking on the table wearing outdoor shoes while suspending streamers from the ceiling. This was after the table had been wiped down from the previous party and had been mostly set for the new party... More

Hello David, I appreciate the time you took to send a message through our website on the day of your visit. I tried to reply to you but I'm afraid you filled out the contact form with a mistake in your email address so despite a few tries where I tried to guess your email address I couldn't get my...

This is an excellent venue for the under 5's with a clean, safe and professionally-run environment. My daughter is nearly 4 and she loves the interactivity and the free-form nature of the set-up. The playroom is large effort to comfortably accommodate 50 kids plus parents but is small enough to prevent those "OhMyGodWhereIsShe" moments that i have grown to despise.... More

Massive waste of money. Iv more toys in my sons playroom. 6 00 entry is a joke considering its a rugby hall. Too little to play with causes arguments. My son was held down under the slide and bitten through three items of clothing by another child while the mother and the staff barely batted an eyelid. Also waited almost... More

I 've been here on more than one occasion and have always intended to write a review so here it is! There are now two Panda play cafes in Dublin but to date I have only visited the one in Terenure. On my first visit I suppose I was a little disappointed as it seemed such a small space, with... More
