I often recommend Killareny and County Kerry for first time Ireland family vacations simply because there is so very much to do there.
The bustling tourist town of Killarney is filled with shops to cater to your every souvenir desire, while the pubs and restaurants will keep you well fed. Venturing out of town yields a spectacular national park, castle, and spectacular manor house. Further afield, the county's scenic peninsulas offer some of Ireland's most dramatic drives and scenic coasts.
