Family Holidays In Ireland


Ever since I was a kid I've always wanted to visit Ireland. Even though I have already been when I was a baby I, of course, don't remember anything about our visit. Now that I have a family of my own it's the perfect time to do so. Ireland is much closer to home than you think and would save the added stress of a long haul flight with a fussy toddler. Next year we want to take as many weekends away as possible and visit many places across the country. I have been looking at holiday options in Ireland for families and thought I would share some of my top picks. 

Hotels 

I have been looking at  Dublin hotels  suitable for families and some have fantastic deals on at the moment. There are many hotels which are very central and would be great for anyone who wants the city on their doorstep with a host of tourist attractions and venues within walking distance. This would be very convenient if you didn't have your car.  It goes without saying that there’s loads to do with little ones in Dublin – I’ve been looking at the National Botanic Gardens, the numerous beautiful parks in the city, Dublin Zoo and the Sea Safari Wildlife Tours. There’s also an amazing art and culture centre, aimed at children between 2 and 12, called The Ark, that I think we’d love as much as Amelia! 

Holiday cottages 

What about a holiday cottage rental in Cork? Cork is the second largest city in Ireland and full of numerous activities for families with children for fun days out. A holiday cottage rental is a lovely way to enjoy your stay and especially if you have young children it will make them feel more at home being in the same kind of environment. You can find many farmhouse and townhouse family cottages to rent across Ireland.  

Caravan holidays  

If you don't want the hassle of a package holiday that may involve long wait at the airport, delayed flights and a noisy apartment a caravan park holiday may just be for you! A caravan park holiday will have plenty of activities for your kids, and many of them are open all year round. The only downsides are that they’re usually not as centrally located as a hotel, and may not be as comfortable for those with very young children. 

Have you thought about considering Ireland as a holiday? Or have you been and have any tips to share for those travelling with a toddler in tow? I’d love to hear your experiences to help me plan our Ireland adventure.

  6. We don’t have much time to spend some quality time with our family so it is my personal opinion that family holidays provide us an opportunity to spend a quality time with our family. It is time for us to combining fun with relaxation. So, it is very important to research about some good places for your family holiday before going on a family holiday because it provides a way to compare different choices and select one that can provide the best service to make your family holidays memorable. Ireland is one of my favorite destinations that can offer something for everyone, but it must be kept in mind that we have to book all essential things such as hotels, car hire, and restaurants etc. in advance because it will not only save our time and money, but also provide peace of mind during a family holidays. There are many hotels to stay, but it is my personal experience that we have to stay in Irish Country hotels that can feel you the real Irish hospitality and culture. There are many Irish country hotels available so you can choose one that suite you according to your budget and destinations where you want to go in Ireland.
