New Irish website launched to help parents find fun family days out
Every day brings new challenges when you are raising a family and one of the more regular questions, parents ask each other is “what the hell are we going to do with the kids today?”
Parents will be under a lot of pressure during the current mid-term or the extended Easter break next month.
They may want to find a new activity to do try with their kids whether that is an adventure farm, a skate park, a playground, arts & crafts, bowling. Or maybe just find something to do this weekend that could be a school fair, a sports open day or a local fundraiser.
Other times, a parent may want to research some ideas for a birthday party or find an indoor play centre in Dublin where the kids can run off some steam during the bad weather or maybe even find a creche or after school options near where you live. Also, it would be great to be able to plan ahead and learn about the activities available near your future holiday destination.
Newly launched yourdaysout.com aims to solve all of these issues by developing a site that is based on user generated content - YOUR days out; any registered user can add their own favourite family days out whether it is a free playground in Dublin or play centre in Ireland.
Parents can now find reviews and recommendations from other parents and filter results based on location, interests and facilities. Another feature is the ability for local organisers to publish their events for FREE, thereby increasing their fundraising opportunities.
For example, if the local Parents Association was running an event the standard marketing tools available are a letter home with the school kids, status updates on their Facebook page and some flyers in local shop windows. Now they have an opportunity to reach families outside their normal network with a FREE promote event listing; maybe someone from the next town would love to attend the school fair but previously had no way of knowing that it was on.
However, the best feature of the site is that the “Search Near Me” button will show results within 50 kilometres of your location so parents can find fun things to do outside of the normal places they visit. The search results can be filtered by distance, interests, price or facilities providing much richer detail for families but also allowing businesses to reach a larger potential audience.
Users can enter playground and Search Near Me to find all listed playgrounds in their area and add their own favourites if they are not already listed.
Or you can enter Birthday Party and Search Near Me to find some great ideas on potential venues for an upcoming celebration.
To celebrate the launch Sunday World has teamed up with yourdaysout.com to bring you some fantastic savings on some great venues throughout Ireland this Easter Break.
