See what our guests say about their childrens experience of our Kids Club:
"Really enjoyed our recent stay. Kids had a ball even skipping dessert to get back to the kids club as quick as they could. Special mention to Sylvia in the kids club ,three boys had great fun making Rice Krispie buns , decorating valentines gifts and playing board games. So much activities in one evening!!!"
"We've been twice in summer 2016 and have loved it both times! Our two boys LOVED the kids club and wanted to spend all their time there. We stayed in an apartment both times which were lovely...great breakfast, great staff & a wonderful place to go"
"We had an excellent experience in the hotel, pleasant staff, good food, lovely kids club (Natalie + other staff member were very good + helpful)"
"The two ladies in the Kids club were excellent. They had a lot of kids but it was well managed and we were very comfortable with leaving the kids in safe hands."
"We couldn't find fault & the kids club is amazing!!!!"
"The staff were very helpful and friendly and I highly commend the work done by the girls in the kids club. They had such a lovely way with the children that immediately put them at ease. The kids club also had plenty of scheduled activities rather than just a half empty playroom that you experience at many hotel kids clubs. The hotel location is great and handy enough for Kildare Village outlet for shopping. Plenty for kids in the area too including Lullymore Heritage Park which is an excellent day out"
