This is the fourth visit to this type of establishment. Great for the children to learn about the sea life.

Would agree with the general average reviews. Although we enjoyed our visit the venue seemed rather expensive for the limited time it took to walk through the aquarium. Perhaps something to consider for a rainy day.

Spent a pleasant hour looking round, lots of colourful fish and sea life. Quite small so doesn't take long however you can go back in more than once during the same days which is a bonus.

Very basic.Not really that much to see and the golf you pay extra for is not worth the price. Lots of better things to see in the area

Get up close and personal with the creatures above and below the sea! Although Sea Life Aquarium is not huge, it is entertaining nevertheless and well worth a visit for all the family. Optional extra, why not spend €2 extra for your little ones to feed the rays? The memories and the photos are priceless. The venue is very clean... More

We visited this aquarium yesterday with 2 children 7 & 4. A highlight was the large tank as you go in where you can spend €2 to feed the rays. Overall quite small and easily covered in an hour. You do get a wristband which allows you to come and go as you please but there isn't too much to... More
