Children really enjoyed the day on their School tour. Lots of activity and great variety. Children were kept active and engaged. The garden area and planting activities was both impressive and interactive. It was great to see the children taking turns planting and picking flowers and herbs. Staff are helpful, friendly and approachable. A great experience for all. Very clean and tidy, nicely layed out. I would highly recommend Mellowes Adventure Centre to all Junior and Senior classes as well as pre-schools.

“Perfect venue for school tours for junior and senior infants. Really well organised and safe. Great variety of activities to suit everyone. Bouncy Castles, Playground and Pedal Cars a big hit. Lots to learn about animals and really good eco garden and planting. We could have stayed far longer. Our staff really appreciated lunch and the fact that they could relax and keep an eye on everyone at the same time. A really good value school tour and also just the right distance from Dublin – we will definitely be back. Hopefully in the same kind of weather! Many thanks to all for a fun, active and stress free school tour”.
