Child Friendly Restaurants and Cafés in Carlow
Child Friendly Restaurants in Carlow
In our opinion, a family friendly café or restaurant should welcome children and not just tolerate them. Ideally they should have an imaginative children's menu, plenty of high chairs, colouring materials and a changing area for babies. At the very least, healthy food options and high chairs are a good start.
