Family-Friendly Campsites In Ireland
Please note that not all activities at these family friendly campsites are free of charge or available every day, so do check before you travel. Some campsites have also introduced restrictions around the number of tents they allow and short-term lets, so again please check before travelling to ensure you can get the type of pitch you want.
Nore Valley Park, Bennettsbridge, Co. Kilkenny
Nore Valley is family run and is located in a quiet area 11km from Kilkenny City. The site is situated on an open farm so anyone staying on site has free access to the farm. Children are encouraged to help out at feeding time.
The site specialises in family activities, some of which may incur a small charge. These include:
- Children’s play area
- Sandpit with diggers
- Pool room
- Crazy golf,
- Pedal go-karts
- Trailer rides
There is also a river walk through the farm and woodlands and you can bring your dog.
For those who want to stay on-site but have no tent or caravan of their own, Nore Valley Park has a number of lovely wooden lodges and spacious mobile homes available to rent.
We especially like the delicious home baked food on offer, including bread, scones, tarts, biscuits and pizza.
