Traveling Ireland with kids

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are taking our kids (13 year old daughter, 11 & 9 year old sons) to Ireland for the first time in June 2013. They have never travelled overseas so it will a completely new experience for them.

We are flying in and out of Shannon. (Our daughter's name is Clare and we wanted the first place she touched was in "her" county) We decided to book self-catering cottages since it was more economical for a family of 5. Our plan is to use these as our home base and tour from there. We are staying 6 nights in Clifden, County Galway and 8 nights just outside of Kilkenny.

I love to schedule every minute of every day but I controlled my natural tendencies in this case. I haven't made any plans. None. I want to be open to enjoy things that we may just happen upon. Does any one have any suggestions for families in these regions?

What kind of clothes should we pack? We are renting a station wagon but we still need to be careful with the amount of things that we bring. Are there Laundromats around if our cottages don't have facilities?
