Relaxing family break

Img description

Get away with the family and relax in the Munster Vales with a stay in either Co Waterford’s Dungarvan Park Hotel with easy access to the start of the Waterford Greenway where you can hire bikes from Garvan The Greenway Man; or Charleville Park Hotel which offers a supervised movie night for kids at the weekend. Both options have swimming pools, steam rooms and saunas.

The kids will love a visit to the Liscarroll Donkey Sanctuary on Day 1 where you can book some time at the open farm and check out how Lockdown Lockie, the foal, is getting on. Stop by Thatch and Thyme Café to sample their luscious salads, creamy chowder and big, wholesome bakes.

On Day 2, take a trip to the Anne Valley Walkway and Wildlife Centre. This is a lovely flat walk, ideal for children, with lovely views and quirky little touches such as a worry tree and fairy doors. Stop off for barista coffee, snacks and a chat with the locals at the seasonal Happy Grind coffee wagon. Follow that up with a visit to Dunhill Eco Park where you can learn about the various local businesses operating from the premises and visit the community garden to learn about growing your own food and sustainable living.
