Best Child Friendly Restaurants in Westmeath


Looking for somewhere to eat out with the kids? Here is our pick of the best child friendly restaurants in Westmeath.

In my experience buggies are rarely welcome anywhere! Some places will take buggies from you at the door, others will quite simply refuse you entry! So when possible if dining out with a young baby bring the car-seat and with an older baby or toddler you will find high chairs / booster seats in any child friendly eatery.
