Mr Cool – Party planning made easy for parties Cork

Mr Cool in Cork makes it easy for parents organising celebrations and parties, Cork and further afield. We caught up with owner Barry Phelan to find out more.

What is Mr Cool?

mrcoolicecreamvanMr Cool began life as an Ice-Cream Van. Soft serve ice-cream at its best with all the toppings, popcorn, candy floss, retro sweets, slush puppies and milk shakes are all on offer from Mr Cool’s van. A friendly face, a little chit-chat and remembering the customer’s name all helped boost Mr Cool’s popularity in the Cork region. But after numerous party bookings, Mr soon realised they could make organizing a party or event so much easier for parents by adding more to their service.

Cool Castles

Mr Cool also supply quality themed inflatable Bouncy Castles for hire, where their one goal is to make kids (and grown-ups!) happy! It’s an accepted fact that every good party, be a birthday party or work party, has a bouncy castle. It’s an easy way to entertain the kids, and allow the big kids the time to sit back and enjoy themselves. That is at least until the big kids have a go!!  Mr Cool offers a range of Bouncy Castles for a range of needs and budgets. They can help you decide what castle is suitable for your needs.

Finger Licking Candy Floss

mrcoolcandyflossMr Cool offers a candy floss cart for party hire. A massive hit every time with the children and something different at parties too. An added treat for all kids is to actually see their own candy floss being made right in front of them. Seeing is believing!

All machines come with a trained operator and all the candy floss your guests can eat. Mr Cool currently has a wide range of different candy floss flavours and colours, and all are produced on a specially manufactured cart for an old fashioned style.  Whichever flavour or colour you choose, you can be assured it will look and taste fabulous!

The Wee Chippy

The latest addition to Mr Cool is The Wee Chippy, which caters for all events and parties, big or small. It has already been a hit at wedding parties and bookings are being taking for Confirmations and Communions.

Now Mr Cool can offer a full package to his customers – food and drinks, dessert and bouncy castle entertainment.

Who is behind Mr Cool?

The business was started by husband and wife, Barry and Fiona, when both lost their white collar jobs due to recessionary times. Fast forward a few years, and they have now developed a successful business along with raising their 3 small children.

Their aim is to continue to provide a quality and friendly service to the Cork region. Recommendations and referrals have led to Mr Cool branching out and now they serve much of Munster.

Who uses Mr Cool?

From birthday parties, to Communions and Confirmations, weddings, corporate bbqs, school fun days and many other events are all on the client portfolio of Mr Cool. Mr Cool will work tirelessly to provide you with exactly what you require. With years of experience operating and organising some of the best kids parties and adult events, Mr Cool understands that each party/event is unique. Each client, each budget, each location and each brief is intrinsically different, and therefore Mr Cool tailors his response and creative skills appropriately. Ultimately anything is possible…You bring the kids (big and small!) and Mr Cool brings the fun!!

Why are they different from the rest?

Being a family business, Mr Cool take great pride in all aspects of their work and have a professional approach to each and every event. “We always promote a polite and upbeat courteous service. The best value and best quality products are always offered. When you call, you are dealing directly with the owner. I do this fulltime and I can be contacted anytime” says Barry.

mrcoolweddingExceptional service for weddings

Booking an ice-cream van for your wedding party has grown in popularity over the past few years. Mr Cool had the delight in serving over 40 weddings last year in Munster. The sight of the ice-cream van decorated to match the bridesmaids’ colour scheme parked outside the church or reception venue, brings a smile and cheers from guests every time!

The groom can come into their van to serve a “99” to his new wife and then to his groomsmen. Then the rest of the party’s ice-cream needs are fulfilled.

On offer for you is:

  • An ice-cream van
  • An old style candy floss cart
  • A freshly popped popcorn cart
  • A selection of small, medium and large bouncy castles
