Indoor Centre Fun
Kidz Kingdom at The Mulvey Centre in Carrick on Shannon has ten pin bowling, a unique castle-themed, multi-level play centre, a well equipped arcade and a separate pool table area.
The space at The Little Monks Den at Fenagh Visitor Centre is based on a monastery theme over three tiers. There is a specially designed and segregated toddler area. The monks den is also available for children’s parties / groups and other special occasions.
Catch a Movie!
Who doesn’t love popcorn and a good movie?
Take in a movie at the Carrick Cineplex. There is a kids’ club with discounted rates on weekends and during school holidays. They also offer special kids meals too.
Alternatively, why not enjoy all the fun of the cinema, without ever leaving home, by creating your own home cinema experience! Get the kids involved in setting up the cinema, arranging seating, making tickets etc. then sit back and relax!

Visit your local library. All libraries in the county have a junior section. Great for a rainy afternoon – go and read with the children or take part in many of the free events and activities that take place. Check out library opening times before you make plans.
Or why not visit your local bookstore and treat the kids to a new book. The Reading Room or Molloy Booksellers in Carrick on Shannon both have a nice selection of kids books. Spend time browsing for that special book and go home and read it together.
What better way to spend a wet day, than at Aura Leisure Centre in Carrick-on-Shannon, Leitrim. At the Aura Swim Academy, children of all ages and levels are taught to swim and develop an understanding of the water. In addition to all their classes, they have Family Fun Time events with water based inflatable bouncy castles, treasure hunts and raft races for all the family to enjoy together – sounds like perfect fun for a rainy day!
Sometimes, you have just got to get out and get wet!
Put on the raingear and wellies and go for a walk in the rain. Most kids love splashing in puddles, and sometimes it’s a great way to release pent-up energy from being cooped up inside. Here’s our Top 10 Things to do Outside in Rain for some ideas!
Warm up afterwards with a hot bath/shower, dry clothes and hot chocolate. Then, why not pull out a board-game or snuggle up on the couch with a movie – a perfect end to a wet day!
