Belvedere House, Gardens and Park, Mullingar features in the 2010 top five family attractions in Leinster. This top-rated flagship Westmeath attraction was placed just behind Dublin Zoo and ahead of well known places such as the National Aquatic Centre and Newgrange in a recent survey.
Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone features in the Top Ten Family Friendly hotels. More than 2,000 readers of 4Kids, a free childrens’ activities guide for families in Ireland, voted for their top family attractions and accommodation places. 4Kids is an independent publication.
“Co Westmeath Tourism was delighted to hear these results and congratulates both businesses. The votes are cast by visitors themselves which means a lot,” said Rhona Rogers, tourism development officer. “Failte Ireland recently launched their domestic holiday campaign with the slogan The Fun Starts Here. This survey shows Westmeath is more than capable of attracting its slice of the family leisure market having excellent family-friendly attractions and accommodation.”
