Wexford On Ice Safety Guidelines
Ice Skating is a fun and enjoyable activity and is a lot of fun for the entire family but it does presents some risks, especially for inexperienced skaters.
Remember that you skate at your own risk and, with that in mind, following our safe skating advice will ensure that your visit to Wexford on Ice is enjoyable and minimise the possibility of an accident. Ice Marshals are present on the rink at all times during all sessions and you are required to adhere to the our safe-skating guidelines.
If you are new to skating or have young children it is best to take them during a time when the rink is less crowded. You can call us on 053 91 21974 to find out when the rink is not as busy and choose this time to take them.
Enjoy and have Fun from all the team at Wexford on Ice.
