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.
The Hermitage Woodland Walk is a magical, family-friendly walk through the woods. One of the reasons this Tay Forest Park walk is so fun is that it was once a pleasure ground for the Dukes of Atholl in the 18th century. The Dukes designed the area and planted many of the trees for their personal enjoyment.
We were drawn to the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland by stories of rugged coastlines, beautiful scenery and a charming fishing town. The reality lived up to the hype; this place is amazing and is one of the best places to visit in Ireland with kids or without.
We love hiking with the kids to the top of mountains. It’s such a great feeling of accomplishment for them to stand at the very top looking down on where they came from.

When planning our Scotland road trip itinerary, the Isle of Skye was at the very top of our list of places to see in Scotland. With just over 3 weeks to explore around Scotland with kids, we knew we wanted to spend a big chunk of it exploring as many of the Isle of Skye highlights as possible.
