Four great packages for the perfect family break during the February mid-term

The mid-term break is right around the corner.

I know, the kids are only just back in school after Christmas and now they've got their mid-term.

Next thing you know it will be the summer holidays all over again.

Mid-term is the ideal time to do something together as a family but it can be hard to know just how exactly to fill the time.

If you fancy taking a little break away in February but don't know where to start here are four great packages from hotels across the country.

I took a short break for my birthday with the kids to the Athlone and it really is a great place for a quick trip.

Because it's small you'll find everything you need within walking distance with lots of restaurants, shopping centers and a cinema located in the town.

If Athlone is on your list for the mid-term the Radisson Blu Hotel have some great deals at the moment.


Their overnight Midterm Madness stay in a family accommodation room includes Super Buffet Breakfast, complimentary passes to a family activity of your choice and access to Synergy Health & Leisure Club for all the family.

Midterm Madness at Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone is available from February 14 to 23 from €285.

If you fancy heading down South this February then you really can't go wrong with a stop off in Cork.

We spent a week in Cork last summer splitting our time between Mallow, Cobh and Fota and it was one of our best family holidays to date.

This February, Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Cork have created a fantastic family vacation where the VIP service starts on arrival with kids receiving their Global Explorers Kid’s Pack.

During the day you can venture to the Airtastic Entertainment Centre with a complimentary family pass and choose between the bounce park, crazy golf or bowling.

Available from February 14 to 23, an overnight stay with all the family starts from €279 (2 adults and up to 3 children) in an interconnecting family room with Super Buffet breakfast in Maestro’s Restaurant, a family pass (2 adults and up to 3 children) to Airtastic Entertainment Centre, plus complimentary access to the pool and fitness club and Blu Birds Kids Club.


I haven't done Limerick as a family holiday yet but it's on the list for this year and this package makes it even more enticing.

Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa in Limerick bring adventure to the next level with a range of activities including animal magic, arts & crafts, fairy garden, kids yoga, ninja training camp and movie night.

If the west coast of Ireland is calling your name then you can't go wrong with a family break to Sligo.

My husband's family are from a little town near Sligo so we're down there quite often and it really is a beautiful scenic spot for a relaxing break away.

Voted “Best Family Hotel of the Year 2019” by the Irish Hotel Awards, the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Sligo really does have everything you could ask for.

With a 18-metre indoor swimming pool, picturesque grounds and free dining for kids you really can't go wrong.
