Planet Active

If you are looking for family hotels in Donegal then look no further. Here at Inishowen Gateway, we have a dedicated indoor children’s play arena which is an ideal accompaniment to your family funcation break. With afternoons left free for family time to explore the surrounding area we ensure that the time your children spends with our Kids Club leaders is memorable, leaving Mum and Dad time to enjoy some 'Me' time.

Our Seagrass Spa & Wellbeing Centre offer a range of facials, massages and beauty treatments to ensure complete relaxation during your stay or why not catch up on the days adventures over a drink in our Lough View Bar.

We understand the Irish weather can interrupt the best laid plans so with Planet Active we ensure your kids have the best holiday but should the sun shine our hotel is situated right next to Lisfannon Beach, one the top blue flag beaches in Ireland.

Planet Active is open during all school summer holidays and it provides a safe haven where children can be left to enjoy themselves in our professional care. Children over 4 are fully supervised. In November we close Planet Active in order for us to transform it into Santa's Kingdom which opens the last weekend of November every year.
