Our new Creativity Centre opened it’s doors on Friday 6th October 2017. Our creativity centre is home to LEGO® themed holiday camps, birthday parties, school tours, after-school classes and workshops as well as a drop off facility. It’s a bright new facility offering something different for our children.

We have troughs of Lego for children to build from the imagination. We also have a large test ramp for testing and racing cars the children build. It’s always interesting to watch the children build different size cars and quickly make changes when they realise their car doesn’t go fast or far enough. Will they modify it with different wheels, or a pull back motor?

Children will be supervised by our Garda Vetted staff leaving you free for shopping, get the hair done (handy having Kris Morton right next door) or just a peaceful break in one of the many cafes in the centre. There’s also a gym opening in the New Year so you can build that into your New Year resolutions!

We recommend from age 4+ for our drop and play facility.
