One thing we discovered last year, is that we do New Years Eve really well! So we’re doing it again this year, and heading to the Tullamore Court Hotel in Co. Offaly for some fun and bubbly.
Stay in this stunning town-centre hotel for two or three nights over New Years Eve, and we’ll have a lovely break with celebrations and entertainment thrown in for the craic.
We’ve got rooms reserved from Wednesday December 30th, so you can arrive at your leisure and start to enjoy the hotel facilities. Take a dip in the pool, relax in the Steam Room or head to the Spin Zone for a workout. Kids Club will be running too, offering supervised activities such as Art & Crafts, Fit Kids and Movie Club, so they’ll be kept nice and busy while you relax.
If you decide to stay all 3 nights we’ve included a casual meal in the hotel Bistro on Wednesday evening, a lovely relaxing but intimate atmosphere for everyone to get to know each other. Kids Club is also available in the hotel during the evening, so there’s a chance to have some adult-only time with the other parents if you’d like to relax in the bar.
On Thursday morning you have a lovely NYE to look forward to, so in the meantime you should make the most of the day and the town you’re staying in. Locally is a wonderful Town Park with a children’s playground, skate park and even a bowling green, along with a great indoor activity centre called Jumpin’ Jack’s. With something for kids of all ages, including Cosmic Bowling, a Pottery Painting Studio, Teddy Mountain and multiple play areas they’ll have a fantastic time no matter what the weather.
Jumpin’ Jack’s have offered a discount for One Parent Holiday families during our stay in Tullamore, of 15% off their advertised rates. Normal rates would be €7 per child for 1.5hrs of play, and €25 per lane for Cosmic Bowling, so just let us know if you’d like to head over and we’ll make sure you’re all taken care of.
If you’d prefer a bit of a spin to explore the area, Lough Boora Discovery Park is an amazing spot, with a Fairy Trail, Bird Watching, Cycling & Bike Hire, a beautiful Sculpture Park and Walking Routes, this is the perfect place to clear the cobwebs on the last day of 2015.
So once you’ve explored the area and ran your children’s little legs off for a few hours, it’s time to get ready for the night ahead. We will have arranged for the children to eat before Kids Club on NYE, so while they enjoy the supervised activities, the parents will have a sit-down meal in the Hotel Restaurant.
With a delicious meal to start the New Years Celebrations still settling in our tummies, the children will finish up Kids Club just in time for the Babysitter. Babysitter’s are arranged to look after the children for a few hours on Thursday night, from approximately 10pm until 1am, in the comfort of your own hotel rooms. There will be no more than 3 children per sitter, which worked out perfectly last year as friendships were made and some of the children bunked in together. If you’d like to extend the hours you can arrange this yourself with the sitter directly, but 4 hours will be included in the package price.
So once the children are settled, the evening entertainment begins! Live Entertainment in the hotel bar will keep us in great spirits until we can ring in the New Year together with a glass of bubbly and a sing-song.
While children aren’t allowed in the bar after 9.30pm, there is a very comfortable lobby and residents lounge where you might choose to relax, especially if the children are happier to stay with you for the evening. However you decide to spend New Years Eve, we can offer you one as relaxed or as entertaining as you’d like it to be.
New Years Day is one to relax and recover from the night before, and the day is yours to spend as you wish. A group trip can be organised if anyone would like to get out and about, and some families might be departing so there will be a few goodbyes, then we just have
