Big Blue Barn Google Virtual Tour

Big Blue Barn Google Virtual Tour is one of the most innovative Google Street View Virtual Tours created in Ireland by Contemporary Photography.

Dive in and explore this fantastic facility activity centre for children, located on the outskirts of Carlow.

The Play Area at The Big Blue Barn has a fantistic seven meter high spiral slide.

You can wobble on the rope bridges.

Play with the animals to bring the sounds of the farm alive.

Plus much, much more!

Play is the means by which children discover and understand the world in which they live. It is an essential element in a child’s physical and mental growth.

It is important for the rounded development of the children that, through the medium of play, arrive at an understanding of their limits. This provides the basis for assessing safety in a variety of situations.

Children will find the Big Blue Barn attractive as we present different levels of challenge and difficulty. Children can explore solutions to these challenges and practice their newly acquired abilities in a carefully designed and supervised setting.

Parents, we’ll ensure you also enjoy your time with us, wheather you fancy a big breakfast, light lunch, delicious pizza, great coffee or a tasty treat.
