Picnic & Play…in Ireland

Friday, 8th July 2016 4:47 pm

Despite the recent mixed bag of weather, summer is officially here and the school holidays are just around the corner so children will need entertaining once again during the long summer break. When you can find a great park with exciting play equipment to suit all ages and space to relax over a picnic, what more do you need? So we’re going to help you find some!

Over the course of the coming weeks we’re going to publish regular news articles about parks with play areas in the Playdale regions across the UK, which are particularly popular for families during the holiday periods.

This is Playdale’s ‘Picnic and Play’ series and we’re starting the ball rolling with Ireland. Robert Morrison, our Area Manager for Ireland has provided three suggested family friendly parks and playgrounds for you to try. There are of course many more Playdale playgrounds across the whole of Ireland so you won’t struggle to find one near you. Click here to view these on our reference map and to find out more about Robert.

Relax with a tasty picnic while your children enjoy the array of fantastic play equipment & lovely surroundings!
