Is it teething time for your little one?


We are always looking for new ways to keep the kids entertained, especially during the long summer months.


Unfortunately, visiting the local park just doesn’t seem like it’s good enough anymore. Thankfully, the Dunloe Hotel and Gardens has teamed up with Irish Fairy Door Company to create a magical Fairy Trail for guests.

The Fairy Trail tells a tale of adventure about MacThomas, the castle’s last owner and his fairy friend and protector Stewart.


The trail guides guests around the hotel’s enchanting gardens, with 20 fairies all with different personalities, to meet along the way.

Kids will get great enjoyment in finding the fairies. Miles manages the Hedgehog Hotel, making sure all the hedgehogs have an enjoyable stay. Giggles lives by the playground and loves to hear children playing and having fun, and Asher, the green-fingered fairy loves to plant and grow. He uses his magic to shrink plants to fit inside his fairy greenhouse!

All you have to do is pick up a map, available at reception to navigate the gardens and meet the Fairies along the way.

The 5-star Dunloe Hotel & Gardens is set in the stunning surroundings of Killarney, overlooking the famous Gap of Dunloe. Set on its own 64-acre estate leading to the ruins of the 12th-century castle and River Laune, The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens is ideal for families with lots of activities for children and adults alike.
