we took our three boys here for what we thought we thought was going to be half a days entertainment, the entrance price for the 5 of us was steep at nearly €50, the buildings are quite dilapidated and run down, several were cordoned off so you could not go in them, also the harbour boat trip was not running....

Great attraction with lots to do, especially the beach and water attractions but the restaurant was a let down. Fairly average food with slow service and not worth the money

Just visited this place today with my wife and two little girls. Entrance was expensive and the place is a total dump. The entertainers seem to work hard but they have a job on their hands keeping people entertained in this place. There was a puppet show on which comprised of olive talking to a few dirty old puppets. Santa's... More

I've been there with some friends as we planed to to something funny a Saturday afternoon of December and we were not really expecting the time we had good as it was! First of all it's a good bargain €10,5 compared to attractions parks in western Europe. The place, the view is just amazing. The scene of the village matches... More

Only half heartedly stopped here as it wasn't on the 'must see' to-do list but it was a nice enough visit. Entry was about 10 euros and just after the ticket office had some stunning views of the village and harbour. Your ticket included a free glass of punch at the cafe which was nice, then you could walk in... More

A bit dated,I have visited popeye village before when I was younger and I think it needs newer and more interesting attractions. The animation staff are doing their best with very little, and it is rather expensive for what is on offer. My young daughter enjoyed the xmas village. Food was reasonably priced for the area.
