Tayto Park

If you fancy a day out, a visit to Tayto Park (Ashbourne, Meath) is a really amazing one! We went two summers ago and went back this summer with the cousins over from the USA and everyone really enjoyed it.    

A family ticket costs from €40 (under three's are free) but you will be there for the whole day so I would say it is worth it.  There is plenty to do - visit the fab playgrounds just as you enter the park.  You can do the tayto factory tour (although we never did this as it is a bit boring so my daughter tells me) and do the vortex which sets your head spinning.

There are loads of animals to see and you can do pony rides (€2).  You can pop into the native american village.  Main attractions include the eagle sky adventure zone which is aimed at older and more adventurous kids and teens (height restrictions apply) and the geronimo thrill zone.  The last two areas have lots of activities and rides that are charged by ride so cost will add up this way.  You buy tokens which can be used on any of the extra cost rides.   

If you shop at Tesco, vouchers can be used to get reduced admission to Tayto Park, which would be very handy and there are groups rates if you fancy going with a bunch of pals.  Take a picnic if you want to keep costs down.
