Ireland with 3 1/2 year olds?

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! It's been a long time since I've been on the Europe boards and I've missed it! My husband and I did quite a bit of overseas travel (from the US) before we had our twin daughters, and we miss it terribly. We are contemplating a vacation to Ireland for next spring, and our girls will be roughly 3 1/2 years old when this trip would take place. I went to Ireland in early 2007 so it's been awhile. I'm trying to figure out how vacation-friendly Ireland will be as far as traveling with two preschoolers in tow. I mean yes, I know people in Ireland also have children. My husband and I are just a little nervous about planning a vacation with little ones as it's going to cost us quite a bit of money (four airfares now instead of two...ouch!).

We would have about two weeks and my initial thoughts would be to base ourselves in one place for a week and then move onto another location for a week. It seems like, for my girls at least, having a "home base" and settling in and trying to stick to a routine is easiest.

So with all of that being said, has anyone traveled to Ireland with a child(ren)? If so, was it easy to find child-friendly things to do? Any specific areas that work better than others? I imagine we would be sticking to a lot of outdoor activities and general sightseeing. Probably no museums this time around! :)

Thanks!
Tracy
