Upon visiting this attraction here in County Wicklow, one could be forgiven for thinking you were in the wilds of Canada. My job as a travel author is made all the more easier by attractions like Clara Lara Fun Park. For three decades this attraction has been providing family fun right in the heart of Co. Wicklow and it is clear to see that the management here’s main focus is that of their visitors. I visited here in the summer of 2016 and although the place was really busy and the staff were run off their feet, they all had beaming smiles on their faces. Yes, this is a place primarily for children, but don’t be fooled, I couldn’t help but notice how much fun the mums and dads were having too. To sum everything up, this attraction has very much earned its Top 100 ‘Family Fun’ hidden gem award, but don’t take my word for it, visit them yourself and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
