Caravan and Camping Sites for the Active Family
Are you the family that wants loads of activities to entertain the kids and make new friends with other families? Well, there are a number of holiday parks that have daily activities and amenities on site.
Hidden Valley and River Valley in Wicklow are two of the top sites for activities. Enjoy the thrills and spills at the Splash Valley Aqua Park or the many other play areas on-site, including crazy golf, rock climbing, camps, kids club and more.
The International Outdoor Adventure Centre in Wexford also has their own Outdoor Adventure, where a trip on the High Ropes is not for the faint-hearted!
Westport House Caravan Park might be set within the grounds of the 400-acre Westport House estate, but it is packed with activities for all the family to enjoy in their adventure park.
Nore Valley in Kilkenny specialises in family activities where the kids can enjoy crazy golf, pedal go-karts and also feed the animals in the pet farm.
All of these caravan and camping parks have either mobile homes for hire or glamping, so just because you don’t have a caravan doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the thrills of these fabulous holiday parks.
