The great thing about a good hotel brand is that no matter where you go you should receive the same standards. This is certainly true of the Carlton Hotels, which are really family friendly. There are 10 Carlton locations across the country, with family rooms as well as 2/ 3 family suites. Family suites include TVs, DVD, movies and a fridge in the room. As well as this, Carlton Kids' Club and healthy-eating menu options mean parents can rest assured their children are being well looked after. While each Carlton hotel is unique, all include a swimming pool, with the exception of the Carlton Hotel Dublin Airport. Carlton Hotel Tralee guests also have free access to Aqua Dome, Ireland's largest indoor waterworld, which is a saving of over 60 for family of two adults and four children.

Each Carton hotel offers babysitting facilities as well as the aforementioned kids' clubs. This allows parents to unwind over dinner or have a relaxing massage or facial in a C Spa, all of which include fully dedicated relaxation suites.
