What our customers say about us

I attended the first aid course in Greystones last week and it was brilliant - I have recommended it to all my friends and family - so thank you.

- Amanda - Greystones - firstaid course

I was looking for something to do with my daughter, Emma on my day off from work. I was looking for something that we could interact with eachother instead of just bringing her to the playground or for a walk. So I started looking around and I googled items to do and clap handies came up. Emma and I both really enjoy the class as we are both...

- Leonie Mahon - Glasnevin - Wobblers - playlab course

I would like to thank Claphandies and especially Aisling from the office who was so good in helping me with every detail of the preparations for my sons first birthday. Any concern raised she dealt very professionally and with a lot of patience (poor Aisling, you needed a lot with me lol). Also a big thanks to Sinead, our lovely playlab lady from...

- Renata Shaw - Ryan's 1st Birthday - Old Belvedere Rugby Club - playparty course

I can only say that all the boys had a wonderful day at James birthday. Liza was amazing and we are all saying how calm she was managing 25 x 7 year old boys, and so kind to a few siblings and neighbours also ! How she got those boys to do what she did with all the chaos was unbelievable. Well done Liza and a million thanks for making James party...

- Fionnuala Brophy - James 7th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

Thanks to Lisa for making Sam's recent 5th birthday such a success. The kids were kept thoroughly entertained for the whole hour which left me free to get on with other birthday matters. The kids had a ball and the whole atmosphere was one of FUN, rather than SSTTRREESSSS!!!!!! Nobody was roaming around, everyone was included despite a range of...

- Sarah Hare - Sam's 5th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

I attended with 5 of my female friends, all mums to young babies/children.  We hope to send our husbands on similar course!  I have recommended it to a number of people in work and one couple have signed up for a course with Claphandies in July. The instructor was excellent ? made the subject very real through his examples and stories ? much more...

- Caoimhe Giblin - Carmelite Centre - firstaid course

Thank you for your mail regarding the First Aid Course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and thought it very worthwhile. Our Instructor, Trisha, was fantastic. She is very professional and has a vast amount of experience and knowledge. I have already recommended the course to anyone I have spoken to since.

- Marcelle Gribbin - Malahide - firstaid course

We had a play party for our 4 year daughter and it was a great success - Liza effortlessly and unobtrusively kept 20 girls and boys entertained with games, activities and music and turned our garden into a riot of colour and fun. It was a great way to keep the party at home and I would certainly do it again.

- Neasa Bird - Abigail's 4th Birthday Party - Home Party - playparty course

My feedback on the first aid course would be very positive. I learned a lot during the course of the day and found the practical stuff particularly useful. I am not sure I would remember so much if I didn't have to do it myself on the day (cpr etc.). The instructor was very good and the class was a good size. I would definately (and have already)...

- Deborah Mintern - Harcourt St - firstaid course

Just a short note to say I completed the First Aid Course in Cork on Sat and was really impressed with its content and its delivery. Helen covered each and every area comprehensively given the short time allowed - while it may be impossible to learn everything in those few hours I certainly left feeling well equipped to deal with the most basic...
