Enjoy the outdoors with your kids this midterm! We love Open Farms, especially Grenagh Open Farm, which is about 20 minutes from us here at Springfort Hall. This Irish farm feels exactly the way a farm should be with only Irish animals, tractors and much more. Grenagh Open Farm has a play area so even if it is raining(it is Ireland after all!) you can the kids to enjoy the play area, while you have a cup of tea in the café. Check out Halloween at the farm last year in this video.
The Movie Junction Drive in Cinema is a great way to spend a night on midterm. A 50 minute drive from us and an experience the kids will not forget. Why not bring their favourite foods, a blanket, even pillows and make it a real treat for the kids.
No midterm is complete without a trip to Fota Wildlife Park! Always a great place during the midterm and just 50 minutes from our countryside heaven! The tropical house in Fota Wildlife Park is a must for all kids this midterm break. As you enter the tropical house you are met with tropical temperatures and humid air. It almost makes you feel like you enter a rainforest. Leaving the Irish weather to 26° Celsius. Check it out in the video here.
This is a midterm adventure for the older kids(18+). Would you enjoy a haunting escapade? Does an eerie thrill of adrenaline sound appealing? Do you crave mysterious adventure? Do you wish to push the boundaries of your sanity? If so…. you need to take a visit to “The Nightmare Realm” in Cork immediately… or else… who knows what the revenge will be! Be sure to book your tickets early here.
If you’re really up for an adventure why not head on a road trip to Kerry?! We particularly enjoy visiting Dingle! Be sure to check out some fun things to do there here!
Other fun days trips include a trip to Ardmore (a beautiful seaside town), Kinsale (full of delicious cafes), a hike through curraghbinny woods, or even a surfing trip on Garrettstown beach!
Whatever it is you decided to do this mid-term don’t forget to always dream, discover and explore! Happy adventuring! x
