For the Kids 2: A Family-friendly Guide to Outings and Activities for Children in Ireland by Liffey Press
In 2003, the first edition of "For the Kids" asked parents, "Where do you want to go today? How can you get the kids away from the television/video/computer to get out and do something fun and rewarding?" These were questions parents in Ireland were asking themselves and "For the Kids" provided a welcome answer. Now, three years later, parents are still looking for great places to take their children and "For the Kids 2", revised and updated to include nearly 50 new entries, remains the only comprehensive directory of outings and activities for families living in or visiting Ireland. It includes detailed information on adventure and activity centres, museums and galleries, heritage centres, castles and stately homes, water sports, national parks, zoos and aquariums, pet farms and more - all with children in mind. The guidebook is divided by province with approximately 150 listings each for Connaught, Leinster, Munster and Ulster. Included for each listing are contact numbers, opening hours, entrance fees, location, facilities, special programmes for children, a brief description and a photograph. "For the Kids 2" also includes a number of short essays from various experts on how to get children interested in art and culture, history and heritage, nature and the environment, sport and physical activity and other topics. Like its predecessor, "For the Kids 2" will be extremely useful to teachers and group leaders looking for outings and activities, as well as for parents and others just looking for a great day out!
