Party Venues

Depending on the time of year, you may want to have your party at home or elsewhere. If the weather is good (and that’s a big “if”!), the kids are content playing away in the garden. But booking a venue saves you from the cleanup and helps keep your party within the timeframe.


Leisureplex Parties unusual party venues

From a bowling to a quasar party Leisureplex pride themselves on throwing the best parties ever! You can choose to do 1 activity or a couple of activities and all parties include party invitations, food and soft drinks and a choice of present for the birthday child. There are 5 Leisureplex venues in Dublin and 1 in Cork and Mums & Dads will be well looked after on the day too. Plan your next party at a Leisureplex near you!.

Junior Einsteins Science Club Birthday Parties

Junior Einsteins Science Club Parties are very hands-on and children get to make and take home their own slime! They wear Lab coats and goggles and see amazing science experiments.

Children are enthralled by – 2 types of SLIME, Electrocuting a Barbie doll on a Van Der Graff generator Lighting lightbulbs by just touching a plasma ball!Shoot giants smoke rings at each other with fabulous giant Smoke Cannons.

Our science parties are Fun-Filled, Action Packed and Absolutely Unforgettable and something different – encourage your ‘Junior Einstein’ to explore and be curious about the world around them. Showing a child how fascinating science is through hands-on fun is creating a life long passion.

All that is needed is an electricity source (a table would be ideal too) and all will be cleaned up too after the party!
