Traveling has been a part of my life since I was a small child and that is all thanks to one woman, my grandma. From an early age she toted me along with her, a tiny toddler, adventuring in the English countryside. My grandma has been an inspiration to me my whole life and has fueled some of my greatest passions. It is because of the spark she started when I was just a mere child that my lifelong obsession with and constant trips to England and the United Kingdom began.
My grandma has played a pivotal role in my life and National Grandparents Day provides the perfect opportunity to give something back and celebrate all she has done for me. National Grandparents Day, which was founded in 1978 by Marian McQuade, falls on the first Sunday after Labor Day.
In celebration of National Grandparents Day, Ashford Castle, set in the village of Cong on the West of Ireland, is pulling out all the stops to provide grandparents and their grandchildren with the royal treatment. Throughout the month of September a special Grandparents Package will be available and will include:
- One night’s accommodation in a deluxe room for four
- Full Irish breakfast for four
- Table d’Hote dinner for four (with special children’s menu for the grandchildren)
- One-hour falconry lesson for our
- Afternoon Tea for four in the Drawing Room
