Is it teething time for your little one?


Staycations are the way to go when holidaying with kids! Packing your entire world into the car and embarking on a not-so-far-away adventure seems to be the most kid-friendly option. Freedom when it comes to luggage and transport makes life on hols that bit easier for busy families. The bonus of knowing how to dress em’ each day-ALWAYS wellies- proves that staying in Ireland can be less of a hassle!


It can also be the better option, simply because it is. We don’t always appreciate our magical and adventurous landscape.  Why not spend your next staycation at the foot of one of Ireland's gorgeous national parks? Killarney National Park is everything it sounds like. Magic, adventurous and only a car journey away!


Now that you’ve chosen your location, it can be hard to find a kid-friendly place to stay. Here at mummypages, we recommend the Brehon- the perfect hotel for your dream family break! Keeping with the magical landscape of Killarney National Park, staying in the Brehon will meet your outdoor needs and add the kid-friendliness you needed!



Any parent knows that the biggest vacation challenge is how to keep kids entertained enough for you to get some level of relaxation. The best way to do this? Keep em’ active! There is nothing like the family attractions of Killarney National Park to tire out little minds!
