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.
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.
Belfast with kids? That’s a good question… To be honest, we didn’t know much about Belfast prior to visiting, but it turned out to be a pretty fun place to take the kids. There are lots of kid-friendly attractions including a giant kissable fish, the modern Titanic Belfast museum, Game of Thrones filming locations and much more.
Killarney National Park is a nature lover’s paradise. It’s home to some of Ireland’s highest mountains and its largest remaining semi-natural woodlands. Nestled within this natural wonderland is a chain of beautiful lakes, an abundance of wildlife and plenty of family-friendly activities.
One of the best things to do in the Killarney National Park is the Gap of Dunloe. The Gap of Dunloe is an incredibly scenic, narrow mountain pass which separates the Purple Mountains from MacGillycuddy’s Reeks (the highest mountain range in Ireland).
We have always dreamed of cycling Ireland, but after we had kids, we figured we’d need to put the dream on hold until they were old enough. We are a very active family when traveling and we love the idea of a family cycling holiday, but we have often struggled to find a tour operator which has the right equipment and a family-friendly itinerary.
There are so many things to do in Dublin with children, it’s a wonderful place to visit with your kids. We visited Dublin in high season with our two kids, aged 4 & 6. We enjoyed a good mix of outdoor activities, cultural pursuits and kid-friendly activities.
The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited natural attraction. As beautiful as they are, they have a reputation for being dangerous and not child-friendly. So, can you visit the Cliffs of Moher with kids?
With many great parks, attractions and restaurants, there are plenty of reasons to visit Cork with kids. There are tons of family-friendly things to do in Cork, Ireland’s second largest city.
