Friday afternoon

After having your tea and allowing it to settle why not enjoy a family movie or even choose a game to play from our selection.

Once the kids are settled and in bed mum and dad can enjoy a dip in the hot tub.

Saturday Morning

What is a Wild Boar?

Known as a wild swine a type of pig. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wild_boar

We would suggest a trip to Wild Boar Park at Leagram approx 20 minute drive away. This is a great place to visit it has a great outdoor play area, a play barn and also children can stroke the chicks and feed some of the animals. There are sometimes talks about the animals which are interesting. There are some fabulous walks around the park and also tractor rides during the day. Either take a picnic or have some lunch in the cafe followed by an ice cream.

Saturday Evening

Why not treat yourselves to tea out. We have a fantastic family friendly Italian restaurant called Francos the food is great and it has a nice ambience. There is no need to book just turn up and enjoy your evening out.

Sunday Morning
