Ireland is still one of the countries with the youngest population in Europe and the country is perfectly prepared for families visiting with kids of any age. Ireland is certainly not a sun destination, but the wonderful green landscape and the long coastline with long sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and cozy bays makes for the perfect setting for family friendly outdoor adventures including world-class surfing, kayaking, cycling, coasteering or canyoning.
Kids love to venture around ancient castles, monastic ruins and Celtic sites and to learn about the exiting chapters of Irish history including vikings and pirates. They will enjoy the rich cultural heritage reflecting in music and arts.
You will find stunning national parks, great outdoor adventure parks and wildlife experiences all over the country, offering a sustainable and responsible approach to nature and the conservation of the native flora and fauna.
There is a very good choice of family accommodation all over Ireland, often offering leisure facilities with a pool and an outdoor playground, and hosts are well prepared to cater for small guests and larger families. The small size of the island makes Ireland easy to travel and to fully explore and enjoy more than one region over the course of a week without needing to cover an awful lot of mileage.
