Beautiful spot in western ireland for weeklong stay with 18-month old

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be traveling to Ireland with our toddler son the first time this spring/summer. Our plan is to rent a house somewhere on the west coast for a week, but we are going back and forth on the question of where since we plan to pick only one location. Note that we will be flying in and out of Dublin (with an extra night there) and will be renting a car.

Here is what we are looking for:
-A beautiful location where we can walk out the door and hike for 2-4 miles every day
-Close proximity, but not necessarily walking distance, to a small town. Would be nice to be within 30 minutes of a larger town for restaurants, markets.
-Close proximity (within an hour of) several half-day outings (villages, hikes, historic landmarks)

We’ve look at places around Dingle, Kenmare, Clifden, Doolin and would love to hear the opinions of others (and not limited to these four spots). We don’t have our heart set on any specific “must dos” and are more focused on finding a place that will let us enjoy nature and explore a beautiful part of Ireland.

Would also love any suggestions for specific rentals if you have them. We’re looking for something small – quaint, but modern amenities. A place that my husband and I can enjoy while the little guy is sleeping.

Thanks!
