Kids staying at Dromoland Castle can take part in many Irish recreational activities, which are supervised by one of Dromoland’s kid-friendly experts. Older children can participate in guided tours that provide an introduction to the history of the centuries-old estate, while little ones can play hide-and-seek in the forests and gardens, or feed the ducks. There is also a High Tea for kids, board games and pedal go-karts available. Kids also receive junior-sized bathrobes, and a selection of children’s TV channels and movies are available upon request.
Dromoland also offers children’s menus at the five-star restaurants, Earl of Thomond and The Fig Treewill, and in-room dining offers snacks fit for a family movie night. Kids also receive special treats at check-in and turndown like lollipops, cookies, warm milk or teddy bears. The 99-guestroom castle also features the Dromoland Castle Golf Course and Country Club, and a spa.
Families visiting Dromoland Castle have additional amusements nearby such as a wildlife park, beaches, an indoor activity center for kids, a go-cart circuit, Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, where families can partake in a 4-course medieval banquet complete with Irish entertainers.
Family-friendly packages are available, including some that offer children under 12 a free stay. Holiday packages offer Halloween pumpkin carving with the chef, Easter egg hunting, and children’s activities on New Year’s Eve.
