Q. What if Ice Skating Blanchardstown cancels our session?
A. If we cancel a scheduled session (e.g. due to a technical fault, weather conditions) customers may rebook for the next available session or rebook for a time of their choosing. Please note that refunds will not be offered. Every effort will be made to contact people in advance where contact information is provided, although this cannot be guaranteed.

A. Sessions are 50 minutes long and there is a 20 minute break between each session to allow for the ice to be cleared and resurfaced.
