There is a lovely kids corner in the restaurant with kids toys to keep the little ones entertained while mum and dad enjoy their breakfast or dinner in peace. We found this to be a life saver at meal times. It was a long time since we chatted so much over a meal, as the kids were entertained in the restaurant kids corner. Also I can highly recommend Gleninchaquin Park, we enjoyed it immensely
