Love, Laughter, and Little Ones: Family-Friendly Wedding Venue

Love, Laughter, and Little Ones: Family-Friendly Wedding Venue

The best thing about a wedding, aside from celebrating your love, is sharing it with family and friends. Family often comes from far and wide to mark your special day, bringing their memories of the happy couple with them to share with other guests. Family weddings means lots of little guests sharing your joy and making memories, an important part of their childhoods. But how do you propose to entertain several energetic, excitable children while ensuring they don’t take over your big day? Our wedding venue in Kildare is family-friendly making it easy to entertain all ages. 

Choose the Right Venue

If you’re planning to have children at your wedding, you’ll need to choose a venue that’s accessible to all ages and abilities. Having a Manor House wedding in the middle of nowhere with no public transport won’t suit parents. Choosing a venue with free parking is important for your guests so they aren’t left with an additional charge to transport their families. You’ll likely have guests staying an extra night or two so the facilities of the hotel should be family-friendly with provisions made for strollers, toddlers and babies. The restaurant should welcome families and provide suitable meals for all ages. Our family-friendly wedding venue in Kildare ticks all of the boxes, from child-friendly rooms and public spaces to nutritious children’s meals in the bar. Our swimming pool is ideal for entertaining children and adults of all ages and is the ideal way to tire out little legs before the big day!

Family Friendly Accommodation

We have dedicated family rooms at our child-friendly wedding venue and hotel in Ireland. Our family rooms offer additional space to accommodate the entire brood and all of the accessories that family travel needs. Each room has a double and single bed with pull-out couch. Cots and rollaway beds can be arranged upon request. Our Deluxe Family Rooms have space for everyone. Designed with cosy bunk beds, teepee tents and play tables and chairs, your little ones will never want to leave! Complimentary, high-speed Wi-Fi means they can play games or stream their favourite TV shows whenever and wherever you need a minute. They’ll love the welcome pack of goodies with juice, popcorn, and jellies.

Child-Friendly Entertainment at Weddings

You won’t want your wedding to turn into a circus of sugar-filled children running around so what’s the best way to keep them entertained and happy while the grown-ups celebrate? There are lots of ways to entertain little ones, from in-person entertainers to colouring books and puzzles. Here are some great ideas.

  1. After the pictures have been taken, let kids be kids and get a little messy with outdoor fun. Lawn games like giant Connect-4 or Jenga, or simpler versions like skipping ropes and hula hoops will keep them happy for hours.
  2. If you’re getting married in a cooler month, try a games and activities table in the reception space. Kids can play board games like Snakes & Ladders, drafts, cards, Guess Who, Operation and others from your own childhoods. You’ll be surprised how many adults will get involved too.
  3. Arts & Crafts are a definite way to entertain kids of all ages. Leave printed pages with colours – ideally, not markers or paints so they do as little damage to their clothing as possible. Encourage them to draw guests or cards for the newlyweds as a special keepsake.
  4. If several children are attending around the same age, a kid’s table will allow the grown-ups to enjoy dinner knowing they are safe and close by. Make it more fun for them by seating them all together and leaving them to have their own fun over dinner. Include some games and a special menu and let them feel like grown-ups for a couple of hours.
  5. Professional entertainment is a surefire way to keep their attention during photos or dinner. Hiring a clown or children’s entertainer to occupy the little ones for a couple of hours gives everyone a break and time to enjoy their meal or a drink.
