Meath’s Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre

The Battle of the Boyne Visitor Centre guarantees a fun-filled and interesting time for all the family as you get to imagine what life was like during this historic 1690 battle.

The Kildare Maze Activity Park

The countryside of North Kildare boasts Leinster’s largest hedge maze and its activity park makes for a fantastic day of challenging and laughter-filled fun for the family to look forward to. The objective of the Hedge Maze, which covers approximately one acre, is to find your way to the centre, whilst the Wooden Maze is much simpler and is more suited to younger children. Crazy golf, an adventure trail and a zip wire are all great fun as well.
