3, Ireland’s largest high speed network, has today announced details of some of the fun family activities that will be available on site at this year’s 3 Irish Open in the Killarney Golf and Fishing Club.


The world’s greatest golfers will be in attendance at the event which will be held over the August Bank Holiday weekend from 29th July to 1st August.  There will be something for all the family and especially the children with the announcement of the 3 Irish Open Playground, which will form part of the 3 Irish Open Tented Village in the heart of Killarney Golf and Fishing Club.


Access for a child to the 3 Irish Open Playground will cost €2 for a day pass, with €1 of this price going to the 3 Irish Open chosen charity, which will be announced next week.


There will be a whole range of entertainment in the playground to keep kids amused with giant slides, zorbing, bouncing castle and a climbing wall.  There will even be an extreme trampoline for any children who dare to give it a go!  The 3 Irish Open will have something for everyone with more details to be announced on the 3 Irish Open Tented Village over the coming weeks.


Elaine Carey, Sales and Marketing Director, 3 said; “We at 3, see the 3 Irish Open as more than just a golf event.  This is an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy the spectacular surroundings of Killarney golf and Fishing Club, whether golf is your sport or not.  We will have something for every age and the 3 Irish Open Playgorund will give young children the chance to enjoy themselves at one of Europe’s top sports events.  With half the admission fee going to our chosen charity it is also a great chance for us to give something back from the 3 Irish Open.  We look forward to seeing everyone join in the fun at the Killarney Golf and Fishing Club over the August Bank holiday weekend.”
