The Breakaway List- Family Fun

The past year has been really tough on familys. Not being able to go and see grandparents, cousins or friends. No after school activities and definitely no weekend trips! While we know ALOT of parents are going to be excited to go for a breakaway on their own, we decided to find some perfect affordable hotel stays where you can bring the kids too. This weeks breakaway list is all about family fun. If you prefer self catering for your family holiday then check out the Break away list on self catering holidays.

We did the research- these are our top 5 pics for hotel stays that won’t break the bank. All of these hotels have a pool and we will give you some tips on nearby activities too! Our search was for a 2 night stay from the 9th of July until the 11th of July. Prices are correct as of the 12th March 2021.

  1. The Lady Gregory Hotel, Gort, Co Galway

Situated ideally between Galway city and the Burren in Co Clare. This hotel boasts large family rooms and can take more than 2 adults and 2 children if requested. A short 5 minute drive away is Coole Park. A perfect spot for an adventure during the summer months. Take a gander through all the trails in the park, have a picnic on the lawns, chase each other around the signature tree and so much more. Check out some of the lesser known beaches near Gort like Traught beach. Or just head into Galway city, grab an ice cream and walk out to salthill!

2. GN Abbeycourt Hotel, Nenagh, Co Tipperary

Right in the middle of Irelands hidden heartlands is this beautiful homely hotel that we have had the pleasure in staying in before. Great big spacious rooms and lots to do and see. Nenagh Castle is just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Beautiful Lough Derg is only a stones throw away and from here you can do a kayaking tour with My Next adventure.
