We visited Wains World while we were visiting relatives in Buncrana. I had always intended to pop in as a way to let my 4 year old run off some steam, but the week we were visiting the weather was rotten which made it a must! Despite the filthy weather outside we received a warm welcome in Wains World. The staff are friendly and there's plenty to do - if the kids tire of playing on the frame (as if!) there is s bookcase & also a colouring table. For the parents there is a selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks. The soft play and the toilets are clean (let's face it this is not always the case in these places) but while we were there there was a (short!) lull and during this time I noticed the staff having a quick tidy / clean. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wains world & will certainly be back the next time I'm in buncrana

I brought my young family here and the food is delicious and good value for money the lady in this establishment is very nice to chat to about local news. They have deals on everyday on both entry and food so check out their board. A handy spot for a cuppa

I came here on a wet day with my 9 and 5 year old children. When we were paying we were asked if they liked food on top of their play so I took out the maximum time for play and food for 8.50. Very good value. The place was packed and no child was making trouble. So all were very well behaved. I got special of the day which was a blt with tea for 4.50 you get loads. Oh the childrens meal were sausage and chips/chicken nuggets and chips with a cordial drink so that was fine. They sell penny sweets and I must say the best value in the town only 80c a bag and you get plenty. They have diverse menu especially for parties I will include my pictures as well as lovely murals.

Never again will I trust reviews. Went there after reading great reviews. What a let down. Firstly child had to take shoes off inside door and walk through a dirty hall way up to play centre. €5.00 for an hour. Then decided to order 2 cups of tea and 2 twines which cost €5.40. Total rip off. The tea was just water poured into mugs with tea bag still in it and one spoon. When I lifted it to take to table lady (with no personally) said could you put milk and sugar on at counter as we don't leave it on tables. Place was very dismal looking. Reminded me of prison visitor room you see on telly. Toys outside climbing frame were worn and ragged. If I had them I would have thrown them out. No one got saucers until a couple of posh women came in and they were given saucers! Didn't like how she made a difference in people. Older lady was not pleasant at all and the other young girl looked like she hadn't a clue what she was doing. No atmosphere there at all. Definitely won't be back very,very disappointed. Even from outside it looked cheap and tacky. Said menus was reasonable and healthy! Paid half the price for child's meal in restaurant when we left. Menu was usual crap, burger n chips etc.

thank you for taking the time to review wainsworld and we are disappointed to hear you had such a bad day. Since last summer when you visited we have purchased a number of new toys, have repainted and have added a few new items to our Menu of Sandwiches, wraps, hot food and baked potatoes. We have daily entry and food specials so for example play and kids meal on a Friday cost €6.50. With our meal deals starting at €5.50 for meal and tea/coffee, so 2 Adult and 2 children can play and eat for €24 Hopefully you will visit again and have a better experience,

Wains World is the place to go if you are in Buncrana, looking to occuly the kids and you have no other options, particularly good weather. They can play here to their hearts content. Good venue for a birthday party, however, the face painting side of the house could do with a training course.

While on holiday in the area we brought our young kids here twice due to the incessant rain. It wasn't too busy, the staff were friendly, the bathrooms were clean, and the kids had a great time. We observed that they do a good trade in food though we didn't partake. As with these play centre places, the music was too loud!! Will return when next in Buncrana on holiday.
