Activities for Daddy and 2 wee ones whilst Mom works?

by jillalex77 Online Now Sep 15, 2009 at 11:43 AM

I'll be working while my husband and our 5 and 4 year olds will be free to roam--for four days. What can they do? There's a pool at the hotel, so that's a couple of hours a day. There's a park, so if the weather's nice, a little time spent there. Is there anything else in walking distance, or a short drive away? (My husband is GPS-challenged and a tentative driver with two kids on the other side of the road....) Thanks for any ideas!

    An ideal place to entertain the kids is Bunratty Folk Park - among other things there is an old schoolhouse and small animals at some of the farmyards which they might like. Nearby is Bunratty Castle which also might interest them, perhaps from a fairytale rather than historic perspective!
    Bunratty is about 24 miles from Adare, not sure about public transport - it would probably involve a bus in to Limerick and another out to Bunratty. Good route planner on www.aaireland.com if you think your husband would risk the drive. Anne Marie
