We’re big Game of Thrones fans (ugh, even after that horrible ending), and we were very excited to visit Meereen. Game of Thrones fans will find the trip to Klis Fortress worth it, in fact, we thought it was the top of our list of things to do in Split with kids.
The land of leprechauns, four leaf clovers and rainbows, Ireland is an amazing place for a family vacation. Unfortunately, we didn’t find any leprechauns or four leaf clovers and by the end of our 3 week Ireland road trip with kids, we had only seen one rainbow. While we expected the first two, the third one was a bit of a surprise, but regardless, we still found Ireland to be a phenomenal place to travel with kids.
The first step in figuring out what to pack for Ireland with kids is making a list of what you plan to see and do with kids in Ireland.

Thanks to school holidays over the summer, we were able to pair up our 3 week Scotland road trip with kids with an equal amount of time in Ireland. Like many of our trips, we were very active during our time in Ireland looking for the best of the hikes and cycling we could do with kids.
Scotland has some of the most beautiful scenery we’ve ever seen. We were lucky to spend 3 weeks in the summer for our holiday in Scotland with kids. When we travel with our kids, we tend to spend as much time outside in nature being active as possible, so we knew that Scotland would be right up our alley. But it wasn’t all hiking and some of the hikes we did were so much fun for the kids.
Like most other people, we’ve got a long list of places we want to go and, in all truthfulness, we add to it faster than we cross places off. Scotland had been on our list for a very long time and especially the Isle of Skye. With a summer off to travel after our daughter’s first school year, we knew this would be the perfect time to travel to Scotland with kids.
One of the most breathtaking sights in Glencoe, Scotland are the majestic Three Sisters. The majority of the people who see them stop at the viewpoint, take a few pictures, then get back in their car and leave. But did you know that one of the best Glencoe walks is a short hike up into a river valley between two of the sisters? It’s a bit challenging with small kids (ours were aged 6 & 3), but it can be done.
Fort William, Scotland bills itself as the “Outdoor Capital of the UK” and for good reason. It sits at the foot of Ben Nevis (the UK’s tallest mountain) and is the starting point and ending point for many epic multi-day hikes, including the famous West Highlands Trail.
With desolate windswept beauty, visiting Inishmore of the Irish Aran Islands is a popular day trip from Galway. And for good reason, there is a bit of everything on Inishmore (also known as Inis Mor), from prehistoric clifftop forts, to geological wonders to beautiful beaches.
