Carleton Village Rainy Day Activities
If it’s raining Cats and Dogs, what can I do with the kids? Will the rain ruin our holiday?
One of the biggest worries parents have when holidaying in Ireland is the weather. At Carleton Village we’ve taken the stress out of trying to think of things to do to keep the kids entertained if the dreaded ‘R’ shows up to try and ruin your day.
The Kids Club, Although we do like to vary our kids club activities to both outside and outside activities, we have enough paint, paper, stories and imagination to keep them occupied.
DVD Hire, Our guest can avail of free DVD hire from reception, we always have an up-to-date collection of cartoons and movies to keep them happy
