Ireland Family Vacations | Ciao Bambino!

Thinking of a trip to Ireland with children? The magic is in the names: Killarney, Connemara, Dingle, Cork, Galway, Dublin. Take them to kiss the Blarney Stone (if they need the gift of gab) and let them run down Dublin’s famous Grafton Street with its kid-friendly buskers and mimes. Or head to the charming country villages, where a short bike ride will put your family among sheep and emerald-green fields. It all creates the mystique for which Ireland family vacations are famous. Family fun hotels in Ireland come in all shapes and sizes — stay in a real Irish castle, with acres of grounds for running and playing. In the countryside you’ll also find farmhouses, rental cottages and kid-friendly local inns in quaint villages. Our travel advisors can direct you to the best places to stay with kids in Ireland. No matter what you choose, the best part of an Ireland family vacation is the memories.

–Quiring Family Ireland Trip

“We LOVED the trip and the itinerary was perfect. We felt like we really got to see a lot and it was so easy and seamless. It is a great country for families due to nature, castles, etc. but also just the vibe of the people. Really enjoyed ourselves!”

–Glod Family Trip

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"
