Solo Family Breaks

At Great National Hotel Ballina

At Great National Hotel Ballina, we understand that families come in all different shapes and sizes.
As a solo parent, you deserve to relax and enjoy your family fun break just as much as the little rascals. We provide an in-house Great Fun Club giving you time to relax in our leisure centre, explore Mayo or even indulge in that glass of white wine or a pint of Guinness you’ve been daydreaming about for weeks.

Solo parents are encouraged to forge new connections, and possibly new friendships, with other solo parents.

Don’t Forget About You

Downtime not only benefits you, but it's also good for the little rascals who might otherwise suffer from boring parent syndrome. We have in-house facilities and our Great Fun Club so you can take the break you deserve and know that your kids are in safe hands.
