Went today with my 8 year old daughter. Staff were lovely! She got to make her fairy and painted her fairy door. She loved it. Will definitely be going back at Halloween for the cat and witch casts. Lovely afternoon.

Excellent place to go with children. They loved the whole process of making and painting their toy soldiers and ballerinas. Staff were so helpful and good with the kids. We went early so not as busy but much busier by the time we were leaving

Stopped off here en route to Kilarney and we are so glad we did. Staff were so friendly and helpful and our son just loved the whole experience with his own toy soldier to bring home and treasure forever.
