    There's are plenty of younger lads and girls regularly playing alone or with parents or other younger players ,

    All of the site run booking systems Every weekend ,he will need decent footwear and eye protection ,you can generally rent guns and face protection on sites when your booking ,I'd recommend having a go a renting the first time so he or who's accompanying him can play together without Having to worrying about Having guns ,mags and batteries ,

    A decent hoodie and gloves would make a start for a day out ,

    My go to site would be Redhills adventure in Kildare Very well run and we've a great bunch of lads young and old regularly playing ,

    You then have Urban assault in navan,

    Spec-ops in Wicklow ,

    Rebel/absolute in cork

    A place in Sligo I can't name for love nor may Money,

    Red barn North Dublin.

    Need anything else just ask away
