Autumn Family Breaks

Castleknock Hotel

Autumn Family Breaks

As the leaves start to drop and the trees start to transform it’s time to start planning that Autumn family break away. Reconnect with nature as the weather cools down and the leaves turn golden with a trip to the Phoenix Park. Located a short driving distance from the hotel and home to Dublin Zoo, there is lots to see and do and a whole lot of park to explore. Make it easy on the little one’s legs and rent a bike from Phoenix Park bike hire, located at the entrance to the park. You can take in a guided cycle tour or explore on your own terms. 

After your busy day of exploring escape the blustery chill of the park and retreat to our cosy warm welcoming lobby. Relax by the roaring flames as you unwind before dinner. Our 22 Bar & Restaurant is the ideal casually elegant dining experience for you and the family with elevated bar food classics, family favourites and a dedicated children’s menu available. View our menus here.

Chill out after dinner in one of our spacious family suites and enjoy some Netflix* before a comfortable night sleep. Awake refreshed and enjoy our extensive hot and cold breakfast buffet with options of a full Irish cooked breakfast or a continental breakfast. 

At this stage the kids will be rearing to go check out our 18-metre swimming pool located at Tonic Health Club. Alongside the swimming pool, a toddler pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi are also available. 

Blow off some cobwebs with a visit to our private children’s playground located at the back of the hotel adjacent to our covered, heated Patio. Sit back, relax and refuel with a coffee while you watch your kids play on our swing set and seesaw to their hearts content. 

Eager to explore some more? Tayto Park is located within driving distance of the hotel and has a whole host of frighteningly fun activities planned for the October midterm break. From October 23rd – 31st their Tricky Trail event is running. This event is included in the park all access tickets available from their website
