Details

Imaginosity allows children the time to be children. Children light up when they come to Imaginosity. Their imaginations are ignited, their creativity released and they interact with everything, playing, laughing and feeling great about themselves

But Imaginosity is much more...

There are a myriad of rich interactive experiences to engage in; from meeting the Eco Badger up on the roof garden, and learning about how the unique 'green' building works, to making your way up the Climber past the Wizard's Lair and the Rocket Ship to Rapunzel's Castle.

Imaginosity offers a wide variety of workshops and classes in arts and crafts, computers, music and theatre every day in the Art Studio, in the Children's Theatre Space and in the Cyber Room – and most are free with admission. Workshops operate on a first come; first-served basis. Please check with reception on your arrival.

Imaginosity offers great value for money for families

  • €8.00 for children and adults
  • €6.00 for toddlers
  • €2 for those over 6 months (under 6mths free)

For a (minimum) 2 hour visit, it's exceptional value, especially at this time of budget consciousness.

We have increased our selection of quality art and craft workshops for children of all ages in our timetable of activities, so there is something for everyone when you visit Imaginosity.
