How we started
As the mother of 2 kids, I know how important it is to be able to get out of the house, but we all know it’s incredibly difficult to find a place you can go anytime you like, where it’s perfectly safe and stimulating for your little ones, AND you can relax and have a minute to yourself!
I couldn’t find any playcentres in Dublin made especially for toddlers, and parent and toddler groups usually run for just two hours a week. We pride ourselves on keeping our adult clients as happy and occupied as our babies and toddlers (with lovely coffees, free wifi and magazines for the adults that is), so hopefully we are offering something for everyone.
For more information email or call us and we’ll be happy to help you with any queries you may have.
The fantastic Panda team and I look forward to welcoming you!
what we offer
The Panda Play Cafe is a friendly place to relax or chat with other parents/guardians of children aged 0-5 years old. Unlike the typical play centre that is aimed at children right up to 12 years of age, we are able to offer a cosy, friendly, and safe environment for you and your little one.
Here your children are free to be as energetic and active as they wish. In this safe but exciting environment they will develop physical and social skills, co-ordination and balance, and at the same time their imaginations can run wild!
At the Panda Play Cafe we encourage children to socialize, use their imagination with role play and have lots of fun! We have a wide and varied selection of toys to keep all ages entertained while you sit back and catch up with friends, enjoy a cappuccino, lunch or just some time to yourself with one of our magazines. Our cafe gives you a full view of the play area and we have comfy seating in the baby corner. Our kitchen is always open serving sandwiches, wraps, salads and a variety of hot dishes. We also serve lots of kid-friendly food, including our toddler tapas, offering a range of small dishes to tempt even the fussiest young eater.
Our busiest days are always Fridays and weekends, but we are quieter between 12-2pm any day of the week. If you want to make new friends you’ll find people very chatty here, but you can equally spend two hours chilling out with some of our magazines: our facilities for parents/guardians are just as important to us as those for children!
