June or August: Ireland/London/Belgium/Paris

Jump to last reply

Hi, My husband and I are taking our two middle schoolers to Europe next summer. We plan to spend the majority of our time split between Ireland and Belgium plus a few days in Paris and London just so they can get a quick taste of those cities.

Recently, we've traveled in the fall but with taking the kids, we can't do that. We can go the last two weeks of June or the 2nd and 3rd weeks of August. Which would be better in terms of crowds/prices/closures, etc? Since the majority or our time outside of Ireland will be spent in cities, I'm thinking August might be better since many residents leave the city then, so it could be less crowded? But do things close down in August?

Thanks for any and all opinions!
