Where Dogs love to Holiday
Happy Paws Hotel is one of Ireland's top destinations in which to holiday your darling family dog. Owner, Yvonne Naughton opened this doggie haven in 2005 and believes that locking away the adored family pet for a week or two in a traditional confined facility is wrong and causes the dog huge levels of deep emotional stress. At Happy Paws, we simulate the dog's home environment and more because we have the time to focus on the needs of each and every dog in our care. It is an enormous responsibility and we love every minute!
We Care, Not Cage
Happy Paws Hotel is essentially a doggie camp. Boasting 10 centrally heated bedrooms and offering our 4 legged residents hours and hours of supervised play, fun and frolics. Residents are socialised in small groups with similiar sized pals where they run and play in one of our 4 tennis court sized grassed enclosures equipped with paddling pools to cool off in the sunshine, with shelter chalets and oodles of fresh water to tipple on during the day's activities. Labradors and Springer Spaniels especially enjoy splashing in the paddling pools! Happy Paws' ethos is "action packed" holidays in a secure, safe environment where all activities are closely supervised by Yvonne and her dog loving staff. Long walks off the lead, alongside the River Nore with paddling and swimming are enjoyed by regulars with excellent recall. Clips of the day's action are posted regularly on social media allowing owners to view their 4 legged darlings having fun on their holidays at Happy Paws Hotel. This ensures enormous peace of mind for worried owners who feel guilty leaving their dogs in care.
Peace of mind for the dog owner
Subsequent visits become easier in the knowledge that the cherished family dog is guaranteed a fun holiday which gives the dog owner a big smile too. In fact, owners tell me that their darling jumps with excitement when their car pulls in the Happy Paws Hotel driveway. Dogs don't even wave Mummy or Daddy goodbye, so eager are they to hook up with their buddies already playing outside. Dogs love Happy Paws Hotel.
