Cork on Ice Launch Weekend

At the weekend, myself and Kevin were invited to Cork on Ice's launch weekend in Mahon Point Shopping Centre. We've gone the last couple of years and have always had a great time. This year, it didn't disappoint! We had such a fun day and we didn't fall once which was a success :P

Cork on Ice is a fab day out and fun for both kids and adults of all ages. They have a separate smaller kids rink that caters for children from the age of three. Here they have really cute penguin aides that children can hold onto for balance while skating. 

The main rink is quite busy and full of skaters with different levels of ability. You can skate around the edge of the rink closest to the barriers where you can hold on or you can freely skate through the centre of the rink and just show off! I'm more of a middle gal - confident enough to not need to hold on yet not brave enough to pretend like I'm a professional skater :P 

If you don't want to skate, you can watch your friends and family from around the sides and they also have a coffee and snack area on site too. Each session is 40 mins long and costs €12 per adult and €11 per child (peak times are €1 more) if you buy online, otherwise they're €17 per adult and €15 per child. Family and student tickets are also available. 

Cork on Ice is open now until January 29th and is celebrating it's 10th anniversary. You can find all the info you need on their website.

We also vlogged the day which you can watch here!
