Ireland , Scotland or Wales?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip for my family for July 2012 (initial stages). Am very interested in perhaps renting a historic self-catering property , renting a car and exploring for 15-20 days.




Our family is comprised of myself , husband ( both in our early 40s) and our 3 children who will be 15 , 12 and 8 at the time of the trip. We have traveled extensively.




My questions:




We are interested in Scotland , Ireland or Wales , but I think it would be best to concentrate on one of these countries in order to best take advantage of our time. Am thinking of staying in one central location for a week and doing day trips , then perhaps travleing and stopping along the way for the additional time.




I am having a really hard time choosing a region , as they all look amazing.




Some things that have really caught my eye:




-Isle of Skye , highlands and Lochs




- The rugged coast of Ireland, Kerry , Cork




-The amazing variety of castles in Wales and Snowdonia




Any advice , suggestions or help would be appreciated!

i know this is a very "broad" question ...I am at the information gathering stage and am looking for input and impressions from fellow travelers , even if you have been to only one of the countries in question.
