Good fun for a few hours - especially with younger children.

Average, over-priced, took about 15 minutes to walk around then that was it ...and don't buy tickets there... spent 31 quid for two adults when you could go to an excursion shop and get a ticket for 6 quid.

It takes 20 mins max to walk round this attraction. We've been to other sealife centres which we've enjoyed but this one was truly terrible. Small displays which didn't look big enough for animals apart from maybe the walk through shark display. Do yourself a favour and keep your Euro's in your pocket.

We recently visited with our two young daughters who really enjoyed the aquarium. The staff were very friendly and explained loads of facts to the children. There is also a crazy golf course built on the roof which is an extra €3 each. Worth doing but not in the height of the midday heat!! There is no shade at all.... More

It is a collection of tanks, some of them smaller, some of them bigger, really crammed in a very small place, no natural sunlight, small corridors and in summer LOTS of people, they just have some small sharks, don't be fooled by the advertisings. In the end if you don't have anything else to do and you get the Internet... More

It was a lovely aquarium, it is well laid out. However it didn't take long to see everything that was there. The local area is very pretty so you could spend a day down there.

Had a nice time, not huge so take your time, was a bit expensive, found ticket kiosks down the road after, selling tickets cheaper so buy off them, cost us 37.30 with 9 euro off flyers, would have been 27 off kiosk, enjoyed the tunnel with sharks

We went here for the afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It wasn't too dear and the kids (and us) thought the fish and animals on view were really good. Well worth a visit.

At most you will be in there 20/25 minutes with looking at everything and at €15 a ticket I think it's pointless, nothing new apart from a big sea turtle, oh and two otters! Wouldn't recommend sorry
