Pocket Guide: Family-Friendly Hotelss in Galway

Travelling with a young family can be a challenge, but a large number of hotels in Galway are delighted to welcome families of all sorts to their establishments. Finding a hotel that is happy to warm milk or clean bottles and cater for children who are sometimes fussy about food can be the defining feature of a holiday for many families.

Galway has family-friendly hotels to suit travellers on all budgets, and some even offer extra facilities like swimming pools and play areas. Some will offer cheap options for extra beds – check to see what age they allow children to stay in the same room as their parents.

Around Galway for Families

Outside Galway city, there are several good places for families to stay. Salthill is a great destination for families with children. The promenade along the seafront has a host of activities for all ages and the sandy beaches are perfect for sandcastles and beach art, or flying kites and exploring rockpools. Even better, Salthill is only a two-mile bus ride into the centre of Galway, where the grown-ups can enjoy all the attractions of culture and history.

Keep Children Entertained on Holiday in Galway

Parents know the value of entertaining their children and Galway has lots of options that will please both grownups and children.

Leisureland in Galway city is a fitness centre with a swimming pool and a gym – but crucially it also has a fairground, which is a great place for younger visitors during the summer. The fair features dodgems, a roller coaster and waltzers as well as candy floss and other amusements.

The National Aquarium of Ireland is another option – perfect for rainy days. The Galway Atlantaquaria is the largest aquarium in Northern Ireland and draws on all the sealife of the Atlantic Ocean. See rays and other flat fish, sea bass, sharks, cod and wrasse. The fin whale skeleton is an enormous exhibit that will certainly spark children’s imaginations.

Cruising on Lough Corrib is a marvellous way to show children the historical monuments of Galway. You can see castles along the shoreline and some of the great scenic sights of Galway.

The Slieve Aughty Centre is an equestrian centre with plenty of family-friendly activities. Children can ride ponies or walk with a pony through the 17 acres of parkland.

Another option is Finnerty’s Mills and Museum – a restored corn mill run by a water wheel with a host of exhibits and other information about Ireland’s historic farm industry. For a hands-on experience with domestic animals, the Turoe Pet Farm and Leisure Park is another option. The farm has a huge variety of animals and breeds, which can be seen on one of the walk trails – pigs, ponies, cows, sheep, goats and donkeys. There’s also a pet corner for rabbits and a soft-play area.
