Trip to Ireland - Day trip to Belfast or Cork with children?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My family of five will be in Ireland for 3 1/2 days as part of a late Nov. vacation; kids are age 10, 10, and 13. We will have Dublin as our base and have some sights there we want to see, as well as planning a quick trip out to Howth. I was wondering on opinions on taking them to either Belfast for history and Titantic (two of them are fascinated by the Titantic) or down to Cork to see a smaller town, visit Blarney Castle (I know, touristy, but keeping teens/tweets entertained!). Transportation would preferably be by train, not bus, unless someone can recommend a very entertaining tour; driving not really an option. Any and all opinions welcome - 2.5 hours on train is probably our limit, bus ok if trip is broken-up a bit. Our family also loves sports, so we would love ideas or events around Dublin.

Thanks to all!
