Local Family Attractions
Shoreline Hotel in Dublin is an ideal base for your Summer Staycation with the whole family. We are lucky enough to have one of the best locations in Co. Dublin with direct access to the sandy shores of Donabate beach. Imagine the fun of a day spent on the beach building sandcastles or playing beach games, you can even enjoy one of our family picnics to takeaway.
Right on our doorstep are many highly recommended attractions from Newbridge House, Newbridge Petting Farm and Corballis Pony Trekking, all favourites for children and adults alike. Fancy a game of tennis in Swords Tennis Club, only 15 minutes from the hotel or maybe you would like to visit Malahide, by train this is just a 4 minute trip and there you can enjoy some time on the grounds of Malahide Castle. Enjoy a stroll along the Marina, a game of pitch & putt or a visit to the Fairy Trail in the castle gardens.
