RIP OFF - 30 euro for 2 kids for an hour on the trampolines and a bit of a play in the playcentre - they wouldn't let my little lad on the trampolines because he had jump zone socks on - they are identical to the fun galaxy ones except for the colour! I took it up with the surly 'manager' who proceeded to trot out some bull about insurance because they are made by a different manufacturer... complete and utter cynical money racket - and I told her as much... do yourself a favour and bring the kids to the zoo

This was a unexpected gem. We went there as a last resort with the kids aged 11 and 6. The place is well planned out. When you go in, its a bit unorganised, We were moved from one desk to another and back to another desk to sign a weaver. I get we had to sign the weaver but the staff didn't explain to us what to do. When you get inside, its really well planned out. The play area to the right and trampolines to the left. The place is really well kitted out and the kids loved it. I would have gave it a 5 star if it wasn't for the staff. they were young and inexperienced. My son had a pot on his arm and the girl at the front desk let him in and gave him his wrist bands. But 20 minutes in he was asked to leave to tears from him. The manager was great and gave me a refund but it didn't really help with my sons tears.

Firstly, the kids love the place.....
I stopped at the garage 2 mins away from fun galaxy and picked up a coffee with my fuel at same time....stopped at the door by lad telling me I can't bring the drink in with me...you can now only consume food and drink serviced in FG.
Notably there is a lack of employees on the floor at all times, but if the policy is to have 6 people taking the money and one employed as bouncer then what do you expect.
At €8 per child x3 you think they wouldn't care about a coffee, but this is Ireland on the up again.
The kids are as happy in the Leisure plex in Blanch or Finglas so we'll be bringing our business there from now on.

RIP OFF...... after having paid in, we were stopped at the trampoline part the guy working refused the kids entrance, he said they needed fun galaxy own brand grip socks.. all kids had grip socks but they weren't fun galaxy brand.. I explained I had told the girl at the desk I had socks, she never said anything, I asked for the manager.. he said it was an insurance requirement, but when I went onto their website, at the bottom, wrote in purple it states" socks must have grips" my kids socks had, but still not good enough..I already had paid in, I had no choice but to pay for 4 pairs of socks...I had 4 kids and I was already inside.. I even rang in advance and no one said it... it's a real RIP OFF.. parents should avoid this place, or else, make sure you bring the credit card.. disappointed.. the trampoline part is very small... not much "fun" at fun galaxy
