10 INCREDIBLE PLACES TO VISIT IN IRELAND WITH KIDS
A PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY
It’s incredibly easy to think of Ireland as a place for “seasoned” tourists to take bus tours or for young singles on self-directed “pub tours”. But the Ireland I know is welcoming for the entire family, filled with a centuries old magic just waiting to be discovered.
Cliffs of Moher, County Clare
This spectacular area on the west coast of Ireland is most popular tourist destination in Ireland.
Killarney, County Kerry
Killarney is a terrific base for day trips through the Gap of Dunloe and the Beara Peninsula. Add in shopping, dining and lively pubs and it’s very easy to spend your entire Irish vacation in this single area.
Lough Gur / Ballyhoura, Limerick
Lough Gur lies just south of Limerick City in Limerick County. In this small area you’ll find Ireland’s largest stone circle, the entrance to faerie land, castle ruins and incredible archaeological sites. Easily, an entire days’ worth of exploration and discovery for the kids.
Kylemore Abbey, County Galway
Photos of breathtaking Kylemore Abbey in Connemara inspire many adults to visit Ireland. But few realize that the grounds of the Abbey are incredible place for children. The paths throughout the grounds feature fun play areas for kids.
Often overlooked in its neighbor’s (the Ring of Kerry) popularity, the Dingle Peninsula offers quite a lot for families. One of the largest draws is the town of Dingle’s resident dolphin, Fungi. A terrific Oceanic Aquarium lies just by Dingle Bay.
Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland
Will you believe the scientists, who say the Giant’s Causeway is the result of an underwater volcano, or will you trust the Irish legend that says it was built by Finn McCool as a path way to Scotland?
Lough Boora Parklands, County Offaly
The Lough Boora Parklands were once a prime peat mining area. Now those acres of land are public space, filled with art that can be appreciated by all ages.
