The only real downside with trampolines is that they're not overly suitable for using during bad weather. Using the trampoline when it is a little chilly will be fine, but when its cold and wet, the trampoline won't get used a lot.

At Trampolines Ireland we offer a wide range of trampolines and accessories to suit all garden shapes, sizes and budgets too!
