Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I brought my family here and I honestly have no idea how they havnt been closed down. I have never been to any soft play as dirty. The place and equipment is filthy. Im actually waiting on my children to be sick from our visit. The food is also terrible. Staff however are absolutely lovely. It's such a pity.

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,

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.

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.

Great yo meet up with friends, have a quick coffee or bite to eat and kids play. Staff are very hands on and helpful. Food is good. The parties here are fab with lots to do. They even run summer, Easter, Halloween and Christmas camps. Mother and toddler groups meet here frequently too. Great for meeting new mums.

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.
