One week in Ireland with young kids

Jump to last reply

Hi all - We're about two months out from our 2- week trip to Spain and Ireland and I was hoping to get some feedback on our schedule.

(Our first week is in Spain, which I think we have locked up.)

Second week - Saturday to Saturday in early May - is in Ireland. My husband and I have both been multiple times so are looking for things to do that we'll enjoy but also won't bore the two girls to death (5 and 3 years old). They love exploring and castles and the outdoors, so Ireland was the perfect fit for our trip!

The goal is to drive cross country from Dublin to Galway (we loooove Galway) and then back, flying in and out of Dublin.....and do some fun things in between.

Any thoughts to provide on things we should absolutely not miss if you had 6 full days and 7 nights? What towns would you stop and stay in and for how long?

Initial thoughts, in no order:
Kilkenny (never been - worth it?)
Waterford
Bunratty
Ennis
Cliffs of Moher (although this terrifies me with small children. I have a picture of me sitting on the edge a few years back and hear you can thankfully no longer do this!)
Drive through Burren
Connemara
Ailwee Cave

We'll definitely want to base camp in Galway for a few nights, but the stops between Dublin and there are up for grabs at this point.

Thx so much!
