Halloween & mid-term break ideas

#Halloween is coming and parents will be looking for ideas for places to go and things to do! This year, thankfully, we can get out and about a bit more so here are some suggestions for keeping the little ones (and bigger ones) happy over the school break.
First up, SkyPark in Carlingford has an After Dark #Halloween event for all ages & abilities. Under 6’s go free and everyone else €20 per person. It’s the perfect safe outdoor adventure to welcome Halloween with a bang, fun adventures for the whole family with a few Halloween surprises thrown in. Parking is free and there are facilities onsite including a café for refreshments, toilets and a large marquee. Pre-booking is required.

For days when you feel like a bit of relaxation, Arc Cinema Drogheda is the perfect spot for families. There are lots of family friendly movies on at the moment and with their excellent family deal (€39.95 for 2 adults & 2 kids; or 1 adult & 3 children and includes admission, popcorn & drinks), it’s a very reasonable day out!

Droichead Arts Centre is back open – hooray – and their Leanbh festival is on this month, with lots of fun shows for families.  Leanbh festival for children and families at Droichead Arts Centre Drogheda, will thrill, engage, excite, create cultural experiences & facilitate learning for young people aged 0-12yrs. There will be fun, magic and mayhem…find out all about it HERE

If you are thinking of a mini break, how about heading upwards to beautiful Carlingford! We are going there ourselves and will be spending some time at Skypark and doing some water activities and ending the day with a stay at Four Seasons Hotel Carlingford . We are really looking forward to dinner, swimming and a spa treatment at the hotel – bliss! And they are very family friendly, so we know we’ll be comfortable there with our 4 adventurers!
