Competition Closed

The Weekend Competition is here!! We have a fantastic competition for the last of our week-long 2nd Birthday Celebrations. This prize is for somewhere we went last year, a beautiful spot made even more spectacular by the amazing weather we got that week, it was like we were in Spain. That’s right, it’s Youghal!


We went to Youghal for a few days over Easter 2015, and it was a fantastic trip. The beach right on our doorstep, sun splitting the stones and plenty for the kids to do in and around the hotel meant a relaxing and memorable trip for both parents and children alike.

Kids Club, Leisure Centre, outside play area and games room are all waiting for the children, but that’s for when they can drag themselves away from the beach. Miles and miles of golden sand make a natural play ground for all ages, and a relaxing holiday for the adults who can lounge on the hotel patio overlooking the sea, in comfort.


Just a few minutes from the busy little town of Youghal, and much more that East Cork has to offer, this is the perfect spot if you’re looking to get away from it all for a few days, without having to leave the country. We stayed in their lovely hotel rooms while we were there, but they also offer self-catering lodges alongside the hotel, one of which they’ve allowed us to giveaway.


These lodges are a short walk from the Hotel & Leisure Centre, and decorated with all the comforts of home to make sure you have a wonderful stay. Sleeping up to 6 in two double rooms and one twin room, we have one lodge to giveaway to one lucky family!


Stay any 2 nights midweek, excluding Bank Holidays, up to the end of May 2016, for up to 6 people in one of these luxury lodges, and you have full use of the Hotel facilities, including the Leisure Centre, Gym, Kids Club and Spa Treatment Rooms.


These houses are pet-friendly for a nominal extra fee, and are surrounded by open green areas so there’s plenty of space for everyone to spread out and play. You might decide to stay self-catering, but you’re welcome to sample the menu in the hotel restaurant if you don’t feel like washing the dishes while you’re on holidays.


We’ll definitely be making a return visit to this spot, but in the meantime one of you lucky families get to go first! In order to win two nights self-catering, midweek, excluding Bank Holidays in a hotel lodge sleeping up to 6 people, simply answer the following question:

How many metres long is the heated swimming pool in the Hotel Leisure Centre?

Write your answer in the comments below, winner will be chosen at random at noon on Monday September 14th, Good Luck!
