2 Day Family Itinerary
2 Night Stay
Start your first day in Kildare by checking into Osprey Hotel, into a luxurious and comfortable family room with plenty of space for you and your family. If you’re too early for check-in, grab a bite to eat and a refreshing drink in The Barista Bar, located in our reception area, serving freshly brewed tea and coffee, scones and other sweet treats. If you’d like something a little more filling, choose a delicious dish from our all day dining menu in the bar, served from 3pm.
Once you’ve settled in, take yourselves out for a fun family day in Abbeyfield Farm & Equestrian Centre. Located just 15-minutes’ drive from the hotel in the beautiful countryside of Clane, Abbeyfield Farm is a great location for an exciting, educational afternoon nestled in over 240 acres of picturesque Kildare countryside. They have a range of fun activities including Clay Pigeon Shooting, Horse Riding, Horse Livery, Archery and an Air Rifle Range, depending on the age of your children.
After the activity and excitement of the day, settle in to your spacious family room and order dinner and drinks from our room service menu. We have a dedicated children’s menu with healthy and nutritious meals for children of all ages. Parents can also order a nightcap to truly relax and prepare for another busy day.
The National Stud & Japanese Gardens

After a hearty breakfast in Herald & Devoy, start your day early and squeeze in as much Kildare culture as you can.
First stop should be the Japanese Gardens & The National Stud, a real Kildare Gem and a must-do when visiting. The Irish National Stud is a horse breeding facility, producing some of the worlds finest thoroughbred horses. These beautiful animals are a real treat for both lovers of horses and equestrians or those curious about the sport. On the grounds of the National Stud is an oasis of calm, the Japanese Gardens. This magnificent and perfectly manicured garden is a perfect fusion of Eastern and Western culture and imagery and is a great spot for some unique family photos. Both locations are just 15-minutes from our Kildare hotel and guests can avail of a 20% discount on entry. Enquire at the reception desk.
After an afternoon of discovery, head back to Osprey Hotel, change and visit our state of the art leisure centre, free of charge to all guests. While the little ones tire themselves out in the pool, adults can book a treatment in our newly refurbished Osprey Spa and thermal suite. Watch your kids enjoying the water and practising their doggy paddle in the kid’s pool, open from 9am-7pm daily.
At the end of a busy day, and once everyone is washed and ready to eat, head down to Herald & Devoy Restaurant for a delicious family dinner. We have a large selection of freshly prepared meals, with something to suit every palate. Adults can select from our extensive a la carte offering and children can choose from the kid’s corner with a mixture of favourites and tasty desserts. You could also choose to share a large main meal like a bowl of nachos or a build-your-own pizza.
Stonebrook Pet Farm
2 Night Stay
Start your final day with a healthy, hearty breakfast from our dining room. We offer a wide selection of breakfast foods from a full-Irish to a lighter continental option, all served with coffee or tea to wake you up happy. There are freshly prepared options to suit all age groups, from a simple bowl of cereal to a sumptuous stack of pancakes.
Before you head home, take a detour to Stoneybrook Pet Farm, a family-run farm in Coghlanstown West just 10-minutes by car from our Kildare Hotel. The farm is an ideal spot for a day of wholesome family fun, exploring the pastures of the River Liffey Valley and enjoying a picnic. You can meet and pet some gorgeous farm animals and if the time is right, you can help the farmer to feed their adorable babies.
Rainy Day Activity
Even the best laid plans often go awry and the weather is often the cause of a lot of heartache on family holidays. If you find yourself stuck indoors on a rainy day, that doesn’t mean you have to be bored. We have plenty nearby to entertain your family – like a day spent in the Osprey Leisure Club and an evening in the nearby Cinema in Naas watching the latest blockbuster.
