Is there playgrounds near for a 5 year old or other activities
there is beach 10 minutes walk away, I didn.t a playground near by
The beach is only a short walk from the hotel and there is a play area near the seafront. The beach is great to run and play.
There is a small children's play area in strandhill near the seafront. An excellent activity for a 5 year old is a trip to Eagles Flying which is only about 25 mins away by car. You will find it on Google.
I think there is a school nearby as well as the beach. There is probably something there. The folks at the hotel may be the best people to ask.
