Since Wallace Myers International was established back in 2010, we have had a tradition of celebrating the people who make the company what it is. Sometimes the celebrations are small get-togethers in our canteen, sometimes we celebrate by trying new activities and sometimes we go all out and book something a little bit different.
The research and planning can take some time to pull together, so to make it easier for you and your HR or Social teams we have put together some of our favourite suggestions.
Where: Jumpzone, Sandyford and Santry, Dublin
What is it: An indoor trampoline park where your team can jump around like kids/Olympic gymnasts, play dodgeball or get fit with a Trampoline Fitness class.
Why: It’s suitable for all levels of fitness, gets the endorphins bubbling and the adrenaline running. It is inexpensive (€14 for 1 hour) and they will be talking about it for weeks.

Hire the whole venue to make it an ideal choice for workshops, executive and business meetings, conferences or corporate events.

Also boasting extensive grounds, Mount Wolseley is a venue with ample space for outdoor activities. No stranger to corporate events, Mount Wolseley has 13 conference, meeting and dining suites and 143 bedrooms. Not only will the Mount Wolseley team host your team building event, but they will also work with Ireland’s top team building companies to assist you in planning the ultimate team get-away.
Whether you are looking to organise a busy event with back to back workshops or a wellness retreat, Mount Juliet can easily accommodate your needs.
