You will feel spoiled. It's near enough to bus it into Dublin. It's fresh and clean while keeping the old castle atmosphere. Plenty of food options too. I think a play area indoors for younger kids would be wonderful and the hotel needs to cater to the younger crew too. The food options for kids were great though. We had...
