The end of summer is fast approaching, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa has the perfect family package that will keep the gang entertained for the last few weeks of summer, and right up to the mid-term break. The family package starts from €220 for one night, including breakfast and a family ticket to Tayto Park, Dublin Zoo or the National Aquatic Centre. Guests can choose from a spacious family room, with feature floor to ceiling windows allowing natural daylight and stunning garden views to flood in, or interconnecting rooms, which are ideal for older children and teenagers.
The scene is set at Dunboyne Castle Hotel & Spa from the moment guests arrive, as the hotel boasts its very own children’s check-in service with a Dunboyne Castle Child’s Passport stamped on arrival! The friendly hotel team will provide children’s board games on request, there is a healthy kids menu on offer, 21 acres of park and woodlands to explore, and it is an ideal spot to visit lots of attractions – from rainy day inside adventures, to sunny afternoon outdoor expeditions.
Dunboyne Castle is located within close proximity of some of Ireland’s leading family attractions. For days that the sun shines, families can visit Dublin Zoo, Tayto Park or Rathbeggan Lakes – at the lakes, children can enjoy zip lining across the lake from the High Kings climbing tower, to fishing for trout, or taking out a paddleboat or a mini-jeep for a full day’s adventure. On rainy days, families can visit The National Aquatic Centre, Base and Leisureplex, which are all just a short drive away.
