- I can’t praise them enough. They’re the top in their field. | Adventure Centre Review 2021
Mellowes have always been a few steps ahead of the rest as long as I’ve known them, over a decade! They’re perfectionist and obsessive about your child’s safety and happiness. I can’t praise them enough. They’re the top in their field.

- Steven made the experience incredibly enjoyable | Group Tours Review 2020
We had a wonderful and lovely visit to Mellowes which was extremely informative in an incredibly child friendly way. The children had so much fun. The children have had a fabulous day at Mellowes and could have easily stayed a few more hours. There is so much for children to see and do at Mellowes. For some of the children it was their first encounter with plants, fruit and vegetable care and education. Steven made the experience incredibly enjoyable and connected wonderfully with them. The children were amazed at the eco garden in Mellowes. We are a group that will definitely be coming back here again. The welcome we received from Steven was amazing. He had so much time for the children.I would definitely recommend Mellowes to any group of children who are looking for something unique, fun, interactive, safe and enjoyable. Mellowes is a place that any adult working with any group of children should know about.

A fantastic day out. Very well organised. When they explained about trees, plants and all the activities – time was not an issue, there was no rush. Incredible amount of knowledge and well connected to the young children. Plenty to do while on free time. Boys didn’t want to eat lunch because they didn’t want to stop, that’s a first.

- Everyone really enjoyed themselves | Birthday Party Review 2020
When I looked at a variety of facilities in Dublin I found that there was not a lot of variety of activities or facilities for a one year old upwards. My group had three one year olds, three nine month olds and an eighteen month old. On the day I found Mellowes very accommodating and very professional. From the set up of the play areas to the variety of activities the children could enjoy it was brilliant. Mellowes were very accommodating from the very start. Everything was so well organised at the centre. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and I was delighted that our party of little kids went to Mellowes. Well done to all of you on having such a great place.

Lovely set up of activities, very friendly staff. The children really enjoyed themselves and learnt some fun facts too. Great peace of mind for teachers. Knowing that the children are completely safe but still have a free reign to have independent play is a very hard thing to achieve but Mellowes really do know how to do a school tour. Would highly recommend a Mellowes school tour to any junior or senior infant class. The garden was magnificent with all the children eager to try their greens.
