“GET THERE EARLY”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We went to play some 10 pin bowling but strangely they close the lanes at 8 pm so check before you plan an evening there. That said we had some great but expensive fun on the other attractions. If you have young kids, bring lots of dosh!!!!!

Thank you for your review and we are delighted you enjoyed our arcade! Apologies regarding our Bowling opening hours, during the school term we close Monday to Friday but with local confirmations taking place we open from 3pm to 8pm to accommodate these. If you have any queries regarding our open hours check out perksfunfair.com.

“good way to entertain kids for a few hours”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Reasonably priced games - most 50c to 3E. Something to entertain most people. Looks dingy from the outside, but quite modern inside. Laser game only open to parties booked in advance...

Thank you for your review and we have taken your comments on board. We are happy to say that we have not changed our game pricing since before the year 2000 and with the change of currency we carried over the price from 50p to 50c and £1 to €1, we also haven't changed the price of our kiddie rides from €2. Our Lazer Zone is open to all our customers to a max of 20 people per session our marshal is not always at the desk due to supervising each session , while you don't have to book booking is advisable during peak times.

“Great - but getting thread-bare :-(”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Perks is a wonderful place for children. There are of course casino games for the adults, games of chance, video games and bowling, and even a carousel, boat rides, an indoor climbing/play centre for kids and yes, even food.

Sadly, Perks (like too much of Youghal) is getting thread-bare. The facilities are maintained in adequate condition, but cleanliness and the general appearance of the place indicates its best days are gone by. A bit of "elbow grease" and serious cleaning would do wonders for the place. While nicely decorated - anything over eye-level boasts of layers of dust and grime that show attention to detail is not an ethic at Perks.

Still, it is a great place for children and worth the visit, even if it leaves the adults feeling like too many things in Ireland - it is old and tired and on its way down, instead of up.
