Family Friendly Hotel
“Family is not an important thing, it’s everything”
Michael J Fox
Our Family run, family orientated seventeen bedroom hotel has been looking after families in the region for close to 50 years. From weddings to christenings, Communions, Confirmations, milestone birthdays to anniversaries and celebrations to simply meeting for lunch or dinner, we have welcomed generations back time and time again to enjoy the warm hospitality that has become synonymous with Glenside.
Here at Glenside we love little people. Most of us are parents ourselves and we appreciate the value to you, as parents, of an establishment that caters for the little ones. From the moment you arrive you can be assured that your little ones will be well looked after. They will get special treatment in our restaurant and lounge bar and our family rooms are designed with those precious little people in mind. We have a comprehensive children’s menu available in our Restaurant and Lounge/Bar area and our staff will be pleased to help with any requests, allowing you to relax in the knowledge that the children are happy.
There are some fantastic local attractions for the children (and the big children). We have partnered with Funtasia Water parks in Drogheda and Bettystown and offer a special package when you stay with us. Please see our Special Offers Page for details. Similarly with Tayto Park Theme Park & Zoo, the home of the Cu Chulainn Coaster, The Rotator and The Viking Village among others, we have done a special deal with them also when you stay with us. Dublin Zoo is located only 35 minutes drive from the hotel. We have created one or two night stays for families to include day trips to each of these attractions. You can view a summary of our rates here and visit our FAQ's on family breaks here.
For the sporty family, there is plenty of action in the form of golf, football and Gaelic Games in the area, whether you are here to go to a game in Hunky Dory Park or just take in a game of gaelic football or hurling, just ask, we will point you in the right direction. The championship golf courses in our vicinity are second to none and well worth a visit if you have the next Rory McIlroy on your hands.
For the adventurous family, White River Karting and Pudden Hill Activity Centres are only a few minutes away and offer karting, airlift, laser tag paintball, archery, clay pigeon shooting and a range of other activities to keep you entertained.
The beautiful beaches of the North East are on our doorstep. Why not get some sea air and tire those little people out on the beach for the day, ensuring that they sleep like babies and give you some much deserved R&R. We have Xboxes and DVDs available at Reception, just incase they are missing their computer games. Just ask us, we are here to help.
