Valentine's Day as a parent is a lot different then what it was when you were young, free and single.

 

Long gone are the days of romantic dinners at home or in a fancy restaurant... instead you'll probably all be eating chicken nuggets and beans, watching a movie that you've all seen at least ten times before.

 

Yes, while the romatic aspect may no longer be a priority (or an option), that doesn't mean you should dismiss it altogether.

 

 

In fact, it is a great excuse to get the whole family together, especially if you get to go to some of these places!  

 

1. Head to Dublin Zoo, Co. Dublin

 

2. Take a trip up the Cliffs of Moher, Co. Clare

 

3. Have a go on the rides at Tayto Park, Co. Meath 

 

4. Enjoy a picnic in Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry

 

 

5. Fota Wildlife Park is a good one for animal-lovers, Co. Cork

 

6. Have a splash at Waterworld, Co. Donegal 

 

7. Hire a bike at Waterford Greenway Cycle Tours & Bike Hire, Co. Waterford.

 

8. Learn a thing or two at Arigna Mining Experience, Co. Roscommon

 

 

9. For something a little different, The National Reptile Zoo would be a good shout, Co. Kilkenny

 

10. Why not have a wander around Dunsandle Castle? Co. Galway 

 

11. Or if your little ones are into horses, the National Stud Farm is a great idea, Co. Kildare
