•“Legends bar became our local and with a 5 yr old they made a real fuss over her - ensuring she enjoyed it too. Goody Goody at the far end of the Marina was a dream for my 5 year old daughter - with trampolines, a bouncy castle - soft play and a bar/restaurant -costing 10 Euros a day - money very well spent.
