Available on request

This is an exciting opportunity to acquire a great business with a strong turnover history spanning over the last 19 years. Due to the owners decision to retire, they will not be taking up a new lease when it is due for renewal on 12th March 2022. This was a thriving business prior to Covid and while it has taken a hit in the last 18 months, the fundamentals are good for a strong recovery once things get settle back after the winter months. Demand when it reopened in October this year after a 12 month lockdown exceeded expectations and availability with families desperate to give their kids some fun experiences again after a long wait. It is a large Play Centre with a regular and loyal customer base which grows daily through recommendations and referrals and audited accounts are available for 19 years which support the volume of business achieved annually and its potential going forward. With over 15,000 sq ft incorporating multiple levels of play structure, football & party areas, Cafe, staff rooms, storage and kitchen, it is a turnkey operation and can be seen in operation during public hours as a visitor or by appointment if more information is required. It is being offered as a going concern and the covid effect on turnover has been incorporated into the asking price. If you have always wanted to own your own business, then this is a very attractive and unique proposition as the cost of setting this type of business in current times would be considerable. The current owners will also be available to help with the handover and there is an experienced team in place who take joy in their work and will be huge asset when it comes to running the operation and making the transition to new ownership seamless.

We are seeking offers in the region of €100k for the business as a going concern or for the purchase of the entire contents for relocation.
