Best Family Cities to Visit in Ireland
Journey around the Ring of Kerry and take in the roiling coastlines, hilly bogs, and ancient mountains. Or head to Belfast and experience a city at the heart of Irish history. Here's your cheat-guide to finding the best spots for your family vacation in Ireland.
The birthplace of many famous poets, minstrels, and explorers, take a journey around Kerry and prepare for an experience that blends fantasy with reality. An area dotted with ancient stones from a Celtic history thousands of years in the making, Kerry is also home to natural wonders such as the Three Lakes of Killarney, Carrantuohill mountain and the rolling fields and coastlines of Dingle. During your adventure, why not stop off for a point at the South Pole Inn, founded by the famous Antarctic explorer Tom Crean?
2. Belfast City
One of the best family cities to visit in Ireland, Belfast is the birthplace of the famous ship Titanic and you'd do well to take a journey through the expansive Titanic museum and experience the sights, sounds, and history of this iconic boat and the people who made up its story. Natural wonders abound in this part of Ireland, with the Giant's Causeway, a unique hexagonal rock formation that lies at the heart of many Irish legends, only a short drive outside the city.
Few locations on Earth can match the eerie atmosphere of The Burren, an expanse of flat, rocky limestone that seems to share more in common with the surface of the moon than the green areas around it. Nearby you'll also find massive standing stones from the Neolithic period and a somewhat more recent stone construction called Bunratty Castle. Here visitors can take part in a medieval feast within the walls of the fortification itself!
