Ireland is wonderfully conducive to a family vacation as tranquil green spaces, soft adventures, and local traditions bring everyone together. Handcrafted to include a little of everything, this flexible Irish tour is based around three distinctive castles as Dromoland provides heritage and bliss, Ballyseede shows you County Kerry and Dingle, and then Waterford offers the pastoral interior. So take it slow and get to know the real Ireland as a family with a lively visit around a welcoming country.
Dromoland – Checking Into Ireland’s Prettiest Castle
Dromoland immediately transports you into a version of Ireland that many may think only exists in dreams. Here there is a castle that excites from first glance to last, a place decidedly traditional yet modern and comfortable inside. Dromoland is part medieval and part turn of the 20th century, a mix of two worlds that make it perfect for today. It is only a 30-minute transfer away from Shannon International Airport, a convenient gateway into Ireland that bypasses a long transfer from Dublin, which was the only way to get out west 20 years ago. After a private transfer, you will check into the castle that is located on the outskirts of town. All around you is green space with cows roaming the fields and wide-open lawns for the kids to run about. As you settle everyone in, you can take a stroll around the grounds, or even head into Adare. A quiet town like Adare is ideal after an international flight, and you can stretch your legs and see a little piece of Ireland without having to think about transport.
