As summer draws to a close and back-to-school beckons, why not ease the family into autumn with a staycation at Killashee Hotel, just forty minutes’ drive from Dublin amidst the lush rolling countryside of County Kildare.
The Summer Family Staycation package, from €175 per night, includes accommodation for two adults and up to three children in a spacious family room with a full Irish breakfast each morning in Turner’s Restaurant, dinner in The Bistro on an evening of your choice, and complimentary access to the Killashee Kids Club.
Little ones will love the Killashee playground complete with jungle gym, zipline, swings and more, while junior explorers can enjoy a brand new butterfly treasure hunt or a stroll through the enchanting Fairy Forest.
There’s no need to worry about the rain either - entertainment is weather proof as the hotel has an indoor library and playroom, a bank of children's DVDs, and a complimentary kids club (running mornings and evenings, Monday – Thursday until August 22).
With the kids taken care of, weary mums and dads can take a little ‘me time’ in the multi award winning spa and fully equipped gymnasium, including a 25m swimming pool which also features a children’s area. Alternatively treat yourself to a sumptuous afternoon tea or enjoy a walk in the hotel’s magnificent grounds, taking in the Victorian grandeur of the original house.
The package also includes discounts to local attractions including a 10 percent discount card for Kildare Village and 2-for-1 access to Russborough House and the Irish National Stud, making Killashee Hotel the perfect base to explore the surrounding areas. Guests can also enjoy days out at the newly launched ‘Barge Trip’ skipper cruise service and Lullymore Heritage Park, both within a 30 minute drive from the hotel.
The Summer Family Staycation, from €175 per night, is available until the end of August.
