The Best Wintry Walks Near Us

- Posted on: 22/11/2021 - $itemValue.title

Wrap up warm, breathe in that crisp fresh air and feel the leaves crunch underfoot as you take in some of the most magical wintry walks nearby. 

We are conveniently located only a 5-7 minute drive from the Phoenix Park, Europe’s largest enclosed park and home to the President of Ireland and his two lovely dogs! Marvel at the lush surroundings and acres of parkland while you go deer spotting in the heart of Dublin. 

Take a stop off at the Hole in the Wall, one of Dublin’s iconic Christmassy spots and enjoy taking in the fabulously festive decorations. 

St. Catherine’s Park is a fantastic park located only a short 10-minute drive from the hotel. With a fairy trail for the kids and a fantastic playground you won’t be short of entertainment to get the blood pumping while enjoying the great outdoors! You might even catch a glimpse of the daring kayakers taking on the rapids of the River Liffey!

Feeling energetic? The Liffey Valley Trail encompasses all the above ending in Lucan Village. Stop off for a warming hot whiskey or a festive drink in Courtneys, one of Lucan’s quirkiest pubs. 

If you feel like venturing slightly further afield Malahide Castle welcomes its marvellous Wonderlights back for another year. Presenting an innovative and immersive experience, this year’s show theme is ‘Castle of Light’. Enjoy an enchanting night walk experience by festival light, guaranteed fun for all the family! 

Feeling peckish after all that activity? Delight in our festive treats best served with a delicious warming drink, available as part of A Festive Stay package, book now.
