- Posted on: 01/10/2020 - $itemValue.title

Looking for some staycation inspiration this Autumn? Look no further than our fantastic family packages this midterm.

With plenty to do both in the hotel and nearby you won’t be short of excitement.

Dust off the cobwebs and go for a swim in our 18-metre swimming pool with dedicated toddler and baby pool for the little ones. Warm yourself up in the sauna and jacuzzi for the ultimate step in relaxation. Our children’s playground is also open to all our little guests to enjoy - relax on our covered heated patio area adjacent to the playground while still being able to keep an eye on them.

To ensure there is no tricks only treats this Halloween our family packages include a children’s welcome pack on arrival so your getaway will be on to a winner from the start! Enjoy milk and cookies in the room to sweeten your stay even more.

Wrap yourself up in your woollies and embrace an autumnal walk through the Phoenix Park. Marvel in the colourful leaves, collect conkers and visit the beautiful deer that roam the grounds. You can even rent bikes and cycle throughout the stunning Phoenix Park ensuring no stone is left unturned as you explore as a family Farmleigh House and Gardens or spot Aras an Uactarain and the president’s dog Bród.

We are located close to a number of fun filled attractions such as Dublin Zoo and Ireland’s first rollercoaster theme park, Tayto Park. Dublin Zoo is located only a short 15-minute drive away. The zoo is Ireland’s most popular family attraction and it is easy to see why! Dublin Zoo’s outdoor safari trail follows a one way walking route while allows you to see, hear and learn about the animals. The one way out door route attraction is perfect to ensure social distancing guidelines are followed and that all visitors big and small will be able to see the animals.

Tayto Theme Park is the home of Ireland’s first rollercoaster and Europe’s largest wooden rollercoaster, the Cú Chulainn Coaster so if you are looking for some scares this Halloween look no further!

All that excitement is sure to work up an appetite! We have our casual dining 22 Bar and Restaurant and Earth & Vine restaurant to suit all tastes with a dedicated children’s menu that can be adapted to all dietary requirements.

Our family staycation packages include 1,2 and 3 night stays perfect for a midterm getaway this Halloween. All packages include an overnight stay, breakfast the following morning, a family evening meal and kids’ welcome packs on arrival.
