We stayed at this hotel in clondakin Dublin with 5 children. 2 young and 3 older we had a lovely stay and the staff were lovely. I'd recommend this for families as it is central to all the family activities. The rooms are spacious and clean and comfortable. Thanks for a lovely stay

Family Friendly Dublin Hotel - Janaury 2018

Stayed in the Red Cow before taking the kids to Tayto Park, the hotel offer a package for €249 of bed and breakfast and diner with tickets for Tayto park (2 adults & 2 kids) Very good value. The family rooms are good it was in the old part of the hotel but in good condition. The new Tom’s table restaurant is really good it’s a really nice bright room with lovely seating. The food was good there too. The hotel is good overall especially if traveling from south of the country due to its location.
