Adventures for families
From conquering historic castles, discovering enchanted fairy forests, chasing leprechauns or catching the waves along Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland has lots to offer for a fun-filled and adventurous family holiday!
Family cycling along the Waterford Greenway
The Waterford Greenway in the south east of Ireland is a former railroad track that has been transformed into a hiking and cycling route. Opened in March 2017, it comes with a network of tourism infrastructure such as accommodation and bike service stations on a stretch of 46 km. En route it passes 11 bridges, 3 aquaducts and the stunning Copper Coasts including the cities of Waterford and Dungarvan. Cycling or walking the Waterford Greenway is a lovely, slow-paced way to explore the natural and historical treasures of Ireland‘s Ancient East and beyond. Leading around the base of the Comeragh Mountain and following the River Suir, beauty lies around every bend. Relaxation and peace of mind guaranteed!
Conquer Dublin city on the Viking Splash Tour
The Viking Splash Tour Dublin is the ultimate family adventure. Loud and a little bit crazy, it is something you shouldn‘t miss when in Ireland‘s capital. And we mean that literally - before you spot the amphibious vehicle you will hear it well before! Going around the city centre of Dublin in what looks like a huge yellow boat, the shouting and singing of the crowd aboard is hard to ignore. Dressed like vikings wearing helmets with horns participants of the Viking Splash Tour experience sightseeing in a unique and fun way. Nevertheless learning about Dublin‘s iconic buildings, culture and Ireland's history is also part of it as well as a dip in the Liffey River including the whole vehicle.
Meet the marine locals on an eco boat tour to the historic Blasket Islands
Visiting the Blasket Islands off the west coast of Ireland in Dingle Bay is a family adventure that requires a certain tolerance towards rough waters. However once you set out in the small fisher boat, there is nothing more beautiful than being out on the Atlantic Ocean surrounded by this amazing marine nature reserve. Accompanied by a native skipper who knows the Blaskets like hardly anybody else, you will discover the group of rocky, uninhabited islands including their fascinating wildlife such as dolphins, ocassionally orcas and puffins that use the Blaskets as their main nesting area.
