What makes a family vacation memorable?
It should be close to home and offer plenty of entertainment for children of all ages.
These needs can be met in Ireland, which is why self-catering holidays are so popular.
You have the freedom to choose the property that best suits your family. You can choose to have it near the beach, in the country or in a townhouse. You can also make a tour to Ireland by clicking at Walking Holidays in Ireland.
Half-term events in Ireland are plentiful, as is the abundance of activities available throughout the year.
The Halloween Fest at Westport House & Pirate Adventure Park is a great place to experience. They'll be carving Jack lanterns, and the White Witch will tell stories every day. For the braver and older Wicklow's Historic Gaol Halloween Week may be the best place to get really scared.
Imagine Arts Festival, Waterford, has events for everyone with music, dance, and storytelling. The Wexford Fringe Opera Festivals also take place at this time with a wide variety of attractions, including a creepy-crawly insect hunt for children at Wexford Wildfowl Reserve.
Ireland has many beautiful beaches that are perfect for scenic walks or beachcombing. For the more adventurous, there may be opportunities to surf. You will find many great spots for your family to cycle, historical castles to visit, and lots of wildlife to view.
