If you are like us and have exhausted the usual gamut of playgrounds, movies, parties at home, pizza making etc, a 10 year olds party can be hard work.
Our eldest decided he wanted to have his party at a climbing wall, one quick search online and a phone call to dave who runs nevsail later and a party for 9 kids was on.
The venue: colaiste nano Nagle in limerick, our boy was a bit dubious having a party in a school of all things but we visited the week before and he was impressed, we were too, loads of parking at the weekend and a largish canteen for pizza and cake afterwards.
We arrived and the kids had 15 mins of of warm up then the climbing began, there were 9 kids varying in age from 7 to 10 of mixed climbing ability, however their instructor Jason was exceptional and patient. Everyone got 4 min climbs of different routes and then on to archery (not pointy arrows thank god).
All the kids loved it and want to go again, our eldest had 'the best party ever'
Verdict: great fun, time flew, children happy, fantastic option for a birthday.
Price: €17.50 per child, good value for what is provided.
