Absolutely fantastic professional service - Erica and her team were pleasure to deal with and the children came away with some great memories. I honestly cannot recommend her more highly. Thanks and well done for such a professional service. Thomas

Erica & her team were absolutely fantastic with the 10 children including a baby at our wedding. The kids loved them and they had an absolute ball. Their parents were able to enjoy their dinner and also know the kids were enjoying themselves. Lots of our wedding guests also commented on how good they were with the kids. They had a great variety of activities tailored to the information given to them about the kids and they gave them beautiful personalised gifts which the kids loved. Erica created lovely invitations that I requested to give to the kids with the wedding invitation. My sisters also availed of the babysitting service and found it brilliant. We had ours set up off the main room so the kids were still a part of the wedding but weren’t restricted. They were able to come in and see their parents when they wanted to. Erica was brilliant at managing that too. We would highly recommend them for a wedding and delighted that we had them. Thanks girls ????

I couldnt recommend Erica highly enough. She was more than accommodating to our needs for the day.we had ages from 2-11 and all equally had the best time. My son was a little unwell on the day and is normally very clingy but Erica was brilliant with him and he stayed with them the whole time. It was so lovely that the children had such a good time and all the parents commented on how much their child enjoyed it. Thank you !

I would highly recommend Funtastic Childcare for any event. The children loved it spending time with the girls. Saying ‘it was the best day ever’ and parents were delighted that they could enjoy a few hours knowing their children were safe and having fun. I’m so glad we booked Funtastic Childcare. Erica was very friendly and very responsive when I made enquirers. She is a Montessori teacher so I knew the children would be well looked after and entertained.

I wouldn't have had the day had it not been for Erica. I was very anxious at leaving my 18month old but it's like Erica knew her years! She was fantastic with her and my daughter settled very well. This is an absolutely brilliant service and I would have no hesitaion in using it again or recommending it to anyone. And Erica is so lovely and friendly and very nice to talk to. So thank you so much again for all you did!

I can't recommend Funtastic Childcare. Events enough. This was by far the best thing we booked for our wedding. We have a 4 year old girl and we also had 7 other children attending. The girls came at 6 just in time for our dinner starting and took the children to another room, did LOADS of activites. The children also ate with them. The children came back just after 9 and were so happy and so so excited to show myself and their parents all they had done. They were also giving a goodie box with their names on it. Working in the childcare section myself for many years it was very clear that this company are very professional and the team of workers enjoy what they do. All my guest were talking about them and how fantastic it was for the children.

What a wonderful service this is. Erica you are just fantastic. I was very anxious about leaving my 18month old with anyone and she just completely settled with you. I would not have had the day I had if it wasn't for you! I had such peace of mind the whole evening and you were such a pleasure to meet. So friendly so professional and so caring. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company. With sincere thanks!

I'm so happy I could step in and take your mind off the children for your special day. Your daughter was great company all day & was full of smiles & cuddles. Thank you for having me as part of your beautiful day. Enjoy the honeymoon
Review by
I found FUNtastic childcare events by chance and so glad we did. We wanted a child free wedding but obviously we couldn't because anyone who would normally be a babysitter for our guests was attending the wedding and I had young cousins coming from abroad. I know other companies offer softplay in the ballroom while dinner is taking place but that defeats the whole purpose I think. We booked 3 hour package and all the kids went off with the girls just after our ceremony to a seperate room. They had their dinner there and done lots of art and crafts. I can tell you that all the kids were raving about it when they came back. They had so much fun! My own little girl is 2 and has special needs and Erica couldn't be more understanding or accommodating. I would normally be very iffy about who I'd leave her with (even family ) but I felt relaxed and reassured straight away. When I told Erica about my daughter, she said she would get Grainne( a lovely lady) who is a trained special needs assistant to be specifically assigned to my daughter for 1on 1 play for the full package! We can't tell you how delighted we were with this. Grainne was so nice and she brought lots of peppa pig toys because she knew my girl is peppa mad! She even brought her own blender in case the hotel couldn't blend my daughters food. We booked her for babysitting service afterwards and I can tell you I didn't worry about our daughter once as I knew she was in safe hands. She rang me before to talk about my daughters likes and dislikes. My aunty also used one of fantastics babysitters(Edel) as well for 2 nights and said she was brilliant. All our guests whos children went off with the girls, were so delighted and grateful of the service. They thought it was a great idea. Myself and my husband are so glad we booked this package as it really took the stress out of the day,wondering who would watch the kids and what if they acted up etc(I've 2 very young sisters and knew they would LOL) I found it great value for money and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any other couple.

Means so much that we could give you peace of mind on your wedding day. Thank you for your booking & we are glad that we could take special care of your daughter. The children really enjoyed the arts & crafts activities.

My husband and I married at Killashee Hotel in Kildare in June of this year. We wanted our guests to be able to bring their children so we hired FUNtastic Childcare to watch them and play games with them after the ceremony. The parents told us that the team was just fantastic. They watched the children in a separate room that was still close to the party so the parents visited frequently. The parents were able to relax and have a good time, which was exactly what we wanted. I didn't even know when the team arrived because they arranged everything with the wedding coordinator. One less thing for the bride and groom to worry about! They were fantastic and very professional and I would highly recommend them.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
It was our pleasure looking after all your younger guests. We are delighted to have been part of your wedding. Thank you

I booked Funtastic for our wedding on March 2nd in Faithlegg.This was one of the best decisions I made in the planning of our wedding . The children were entertained for 3 hours between the ceremony and the meal.I was delighted knowing that our son was being well looked after and it gave my husband and I some time to mingle with our guests and enjoy the day.All the kids were give a personalised box with their name on it .They were chuffed with that . My brothers/sisters were saying how they wished they had such a service when they got married. I would recommend Erica and her team in a heartbeat to all future brides. Thanks so much again.

I booked Erica for a customised package for my wedding in November 2016. She arrived at 5pm and took the 3 little ones off to play, games and entertain them. This was the best booking I made for my whole wedding, to know my little boy was being looked after so well and having so much fun was priceless. She looked after their dinners and babysat that night for us. The kids had so much fun and are still playing with their personalised boxes. I cant recommend Erica enough, to know your child is being looked after so well, we were able to enjoy our dinner and evening without worry. Thanks again Erica.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events

The kids all had a great time and the parents were very thankful to have the girls- I would hire them again and recommend them to everyone!

Delighted you and the parents were happy with everything. You got great weather on the day so it was great to play out on the green.

Great service from start to finish. The kids had an amazing time, loved every minute of it & loved their little personalised boxes. The parents loved it more, they were able to enjoy their meal without worrying about their kids. Excellent service, I'd highly recommend Erica & her team.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Your two boys were so good, and their cousins and friends loved all the activities. The talent show was a particular favourite. Thanks for having us and delighted we could be part of your special day.
Review by
We were really impressed with Erica's friendliness, flexibility and organisation of wedding day activities. Our son was very comfortable with her babysitting him a couple of nights prior to the actual wedding. To the point of happily going with her the second time her saw her. He enjoyed his time in the play area that she had set up on the day of the wedding so much that he asked to go there to play the next day. I would definitely recommend Erica and her team to anyone.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Catriona, it was a pleasure having Charlie over the few days. He is great fun and I got to learn lots about Dinosaurs and Gorillas. Thank you for having FUNtastic and I as part of your big day. I'm delighted all the parents were happy with everything.
Review by
If it was possible to score Erica from Funtastic more than 5/5 we would! Erica truly cares for her job and the children she looks after. She is organised and professional. Our daughter was very comfortable and content with her which meant that we were also comfortable and content to leave her in the care of Erica. We would have no hesitation in recommending Erica/Funtastic childcare service.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Your daughter was a pleasure to care for the weekend. She was such a happy smiley little lady & I was delighted to have helped you enjoy your big day even more.
Review by
Thank you so much for all your help at our wedding the funtastic team are amazing all of our nieces and nephews had a fantastic time, Erica was so flexible with her time even when their was a slight delay! The kids are still talking about their party and talent show, really couldn't recommend Funtastic ChildCare enough, especially if you have a number of children at your wedding, we had 12. Erica and her team entertained the kids throughout our main meal and speeches, the kids had their dinner and spend a couple of hours playing games, and having their own little party. They left with big smiles and a gorgeous party box, ready to dance at our main reception.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
We are always happy to facilitate the timings on the day. The children were great & were really enjoying all our activities.
Review by
I can't thank Erica & Co. enough for doing such a great job of looking after all the little ones on our big day. It was great to be able to switch off for the day and night and know that they were all happy and in great hands. There were one or two stragglers on the day but they were welcomed with open arms. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and will definitely be keeping them in mind for our next big celebration!
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
You had a great group of children & they really embraced all the games & arts & crafts we had planned. Lots of great characters. Thanks again for having us!

Erica and the staff were amazing to liase with from the start very flexible with any requests including organising a Santa for the children as we were having a Christmas wedding . On the day all staff were so good with the children and professional and all parents at the wedding commented how at ease they felt leaving the children so they could relax . It made a big difference to all the parents who could relax more and enjoy the wedding knowing the children were well entertained and having a ball . The children really enjoyed themselves . I would recommend Erica and funtastic childcare in a heartbeat really really professional and made a huge difference to how smoothly everything ran on the day .

Erica from Funtastic was amazing on our wedding day she kept our three year old son busy the whole day with toys, playdoh and jigsaws he had a ball! It was such a comfort to know he was happy and safe, we could relax and enjoy the day with our guests. We couldnt recommend Erica enough she was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish such a professional friendly service. Thanks you.

The kids and parents loved funtastic! Erica kept the kids entertained just at the right time of the day to give their parents a little time to relax on their own! The children had loads of fun and wanted to go back to Erica the next day! Aine the flowergirl wouldn't let her mum dress her the next day and said she wanted erica to do it:) They had the best time! All the effort that went in to their games and activities made it like a little party for them too! All the parents were very pleased! Thanks so much for making it a great day for the children too and ensuring they didn't get bored! Would highly recommend this little extra for any wedding!
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events

"Great peace of mind" and "time to catch up with family you haven't seen in far too long" can be guaranteed when using FUNtastic childcare events. A fabulous service for the little 'uns. Have used the company twice already and look forward to many more occasions
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Delighted to be asked back for another family wedding. Your ladies were as fun & super enthusiastic to see me again & take part in the FUNtastic fun! Even the next morning they were full of smiles & enjoyed the second day I had planned. Great time with them & thanks so much for the repeat business!
Review by
We used their nanny service for our two year old on the day and night of our wedding. We cannot express how delighted we were with Erica. Our little boy was so happy and with content with her all day. We were able to relax knowing he was happy and safe. She needs to share her secret with us all! Erica was so patient and kind to him. We would like to thank her from the bottom of our hearts, we couldn't recommend you enough!
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Faolán was a pleasure to meet on the day! He was great fun & delighted he sat through fthe service its something you can tell him when he was older. He was a perfect gentleman during the meal even offering me some of his dinner. It was great to be able to play ball outside in the lovely weather & hope the three of you will have the happiest of times together.

I cannot thank Erica and the FUNtastic team enough. Both myself and my husband really wanted our nieces and nephews included in our wedding but we also wanted the parents to relax and enjoy themselves. We organised Erica to entertain the children during the speeches and the meal. All of the children had a ball and especially loved their personalised activity boxes which kept them amused for the rest of the night. Some of them are still going around with their boxes. Erica has a fantastic way of interacting with children and her action packed itenary of games and crafts kept them busy and entertained. All of the children loved her and are still talking about her while all the parents want to know her secret. I could not recommend Erica and her team at FUNtastic enough and it was definitely the best money we spent at our wedding.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
Thanks Ciara for such kind words. It was a fabulous sunny day & the children were in great form. It was so nice to see Ava again after meeting her at a christening a few months previous. Delighted to be recommended by your sister for your wedding. Great to hear they enjoyed the day & the boxes so much. Thanks again for such great feedback.

We booked Erica's Nanny services for our two boys, at our wedding. We had been in a real dilemma as to what we would do for childcare that day. We wanted family to enjoy the day as much as us so didn't want the responsibility with them, yet at the same time we wanted to make sure the boys were well looked after and not have to worry about them on the day. I started to research what other couples had done and found Funtastic childcare coming up a lot with great reviews. So I contacted Erica. She was very professional and reassuring from the onset. On the day her service was brilliant, the boys took to her instantly. Our youngest was only 16 months old so needed plenty of care, Erica was great with him. Loads of our guests commented on how content the kids were with their childminder that day. I can't recommend her service highly enough, it's one desicion we don't regret making.
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
I enjoyed the day as much as the boys! So lovely to hear that you were so happy with everything on the day. Hope you and the boys are keeping well and thank you for choosing FUNtastic.

A massive thank you to Erica and her team/ We booked Erica to look after seven small kids at our recent wedding and what can i say her service from start to finish was exceptional. The kids loved her and she made our "little princess" the star of the show. The kids loved their box of gifts. If anyone is thinking of booking a service that is professional run, and all you want are happy kids for the day then please ring Erica now i promise you wont be disappointed.

"We are extremely grateful to Funtastic for the great service they provided recently for a family wedding. All the children had a really fun time and were talking about it all the next day. The peace of mind that came with using such a professional service meant that mums and dads could relax and enjoy the day with the rest of the relatives and friends. We would wholeheartedly recommend Funtastic for any special event that might require childcare and entertainment for even the youngest of guests."
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
It was lovely to be part of the day. So happy you got to enjoy the day knowing your children were being well cared for. They are full of chat & kept me highly entertained for the day. Thank you for your kind review.

I was incredibly impressed by Erica from FUNtastic when she joined us at my daughters christening party. The children were fully engaged with fun activities with Erica for the duration of the party giving all parents peace of mind and the ability to relax and enjoy our special day. All of the children in attendance were treated to a personalised and age-specific gift box- a really generous and thoughtful touch! I wouldn't hesitate in inviting Erica to our next celebration - and either would the children!
Response from FUNtastic Childcare Events
So happy the personalised boxes were so well received. I love putting them together & seeing the children's reactions to them on the day, you had a lovely christening & it was pleasure to look after your younger guests.
