1 Night Family Break
The Johnstown Estate

Less than 35 minutes from Dublin, The Johnstown Estate is a luxury 4-star resort, situated on 120 acres of private parkland, overlooking the river Blackwater, in Enfield, County Meath.

At the Johnstown Estate, we have something for everyone. Take a stroll through the Estate’s 120 acres of enchanted parkland and get swept away in the magic and fun of our fairy trial with your "little explorers". Or, enjoy amenities available to you on the Estate, such as our kiddies’ playground, state of the art leisure centre with a 20-metre swimming and kids’ pool, and our award-winning Elemis Flagship Spa.
Diners will be spoilt for choice. Guests can opt for a relaxed dining option by the warmth of the fire in the traditional Coach House bar or enjoy a fine dining experience in the contemporary surrounds of our signature restaurant ‘Fire & Salt’. For real indulgence, enquire about our Afternoon Tea served in our beautiful light-filled Atrium.

If that is not enough, The Johnstown Estate enjoys a beautiful unspoiled rural location whilst still being only 35 minutes from Dublin City Centre. It is an ideal luxury base to discover Dublin’s vibrant city centre, Tayto Park, Dublin Zoo, and The National Aquatic Centre.

The Johnstown Estate is the perfect escape for your next family break. Discover more at:
