Quality Hotel - County Cork
Any parent worried about the weather when deciding whether to holiday in Ireland, should consider the growing number of hotels that have opted to specialise in family holidays, and particularly our Family Friendly Hotel award winners.
This year, this important award goes to ever-popular West Cork, where many happy families vote with their feet by heading back to the Quality Hotel Clonakilty, every year. And no wonder - this exceptionally family-friendly hotel on the edge of the town is just the kind of place to holiday with kids.
There’s masses to do and visit nearby, including the West Cork Model Railway Village which has an old-style train that picks people up at the hotel en route to exploring Clonakilty and nearby Inchydoney (where there’s a blue flag beach).
And this summer the hotel’s fantastic on-site facilities got even better with some brilliant new choices added, including a Jungle Gym area (over 2 levels, with a toddler area and one for 4-12yrs) and also a Teen Zone (with Xboxes, Playstations, air hockey etc).
In summer and all mid-term breaks a Kids Kamp offers masses of activities for 5-14 year-olds, mainly held outdoors if possible. Fun for kids and relaxing for parents – accommodation is recently refurbished and Clonakilty’s on the doorstep for evenings too. Just what’s wanted for families.
