- customised themed digital invitations, ready to print/text/email to your guests
- drinks and/or finger food for the adults

All the set up and clean up is managed by us, and your party host will look after the parents too, so the kids won’t be the only ones reluctant to leave!
Timing options are as follows
- small bookings for 10-12 children on Saturday afternoons, 1-3pm or 4-6pm
- private bookings for 15-30 children for private rental of the entire venue on Sunday afternoons, 1:30-3:30pm or 4:30-6:30pm

Private parties on Sundays can include some extra entertainment @ €60 for 1 hour:
- Book an hour of party games, specially designed activities, and temporary/glitter tattoos with an entertainer or costume character. Make it extra special with a character like a Pirate, Batgirl or Cowgirl Jessie from Toy Story, or book a princess appearance and we can add on the immensely popular princess makeovers.
Please see our list of available themes below. Smaller more casual party options, alternative themes, or additional decorations can be accommodated, please enquire for a quote.
We can provide premium party bags €2 per child:
Our party bags are made without crisps, sweets or chocolate in them, all include a free family entry voucher for PPC, a puzzle/colouring/sticker book, and several small age-appropriate toys. These bags are suitable for children from 2 years of age.
Adult food & drink options
We can also provide a 3-tier tray of finger food for adults for €20, which can include 3-4 food choices like cocktail sausages, tuna & sweetcorn sandwiches, ham cheese and Ballymaloe relish toasted sandwiches, popcorn chicken, cheese quesadillas, pepperoni pizza, mozzarella sticks, pea & mint risotto bites, sweet corn fritters and mini eclairs. One tray will probably feed around a dozen snacking people, and we can replenish parts of the trays as they are emptied if you like. One layer is €7 to refill.
You can also set up a tab for adult drinks.

- Costume character appearances (only available at private parties) must be booked at least one week in advance or we cannot guarantee availability.
