Explore the countryside, discover castles and travel back in time at museums
From exploring medieval castles in the ancient east and whiling away the hours in fascinating museums and galleries in Dublin to cycling through the countryside, trying your hand at some Robin Hood-style archery and rambling along the wild coastline while cows and sheep watch you go – your family holiday to Ireland is bound to be packed with fun activities and wonderful memories.

There’s something for adventurers of all ages and interests in this beautiful and culturally rich country. History enthusiasts might be keen to head to Belfast and then all the way down south to Cobh to learn all about the Titanic. The museum in Belfast is a great place for kids to learn about the ship’s story, and there’s even a live undersea exploration centre. While a highlight of a trip to Dublin is a visit to the home of the ‘black stuff’: Guinness for the adults and creative workshops at the National Gallery for younger travellers.
If your family enjoys spending time outdoors then places like the Giant’s Causeway, the Cliffs of Moher and Marble Arch Caves Geopark are all exciting options.

When to go
With some careful planning, Ireland can be a charming destination at any time of the year. The best months to visit are April to early June when the landscape erupts into a vivid emerald green as the weather becomes warmer. July and August are good times to visit too, but this is the height of the summer season and the country can become congested. September and October rival spring as the best time to visit; the weather is still warm but there are fewer crowds than in summer. If you're looking to cosy up by a fire in a country house hotel or nurse a pint while chatting to locals in a pub, then the winter months of November to February can be a great time to travel.
