A treasure trove of information for individuals or families planning an Ireland holiday, Ireland Family Vacations provides first hand recommendations on where to visit, where to stay, and what to do in Ireland.
No land is more enchanting than Ireland.
Even if you’re beyond the age when you're “supposed” to believe in faeries, the moment you step foot in Ireland a feeling of possibility washes over you. You just don’t know what could be at the top of those castle towers or at the end of the rainbow.

From storybook castles to magnificent gardens, wide open spaces to the bustle of international cities, breathtaking natural scenery to man made megalithic structures, Ireland opens her arms and welcomes your family to explore her ancient sites, traverse her green fields and discover her treasures.
For families who want a magical vacation but don’t have days or weeks to dedicate to vacation planning, Ireland Family Vacations also offers Ireland vacation coaching, helping families make the most of their time and budget.
Ireland Family Vacations takes the time to learn about your family's interests and tastes and prepares an itinerary that fits you. An itinerary that is filled with recommendations- as well as time to follow the winding road that beckons.

Jody Halsted has been a frequent visitor to Ireland for over 15 years.
Her love affair with Eire began when she was a single traveler and did not dissipate upon her marriage and the birth of two children. If anything, traveling in Ireland with family has only deepened Jody's love of the country.
Jody Halsted is an unrepentant traveler, freelance writer, podcaster, and author of the award winning book Planning the Ireland Vacation of Your Dreams. It was Jody’s passion for Ireland that led her to create Ireland Family Vacations, to share the magic of Ireland and inspire other families to explore the island's many wonders.
Though she's not been everywhere in Ireland, her family travels annually (if not more often!) to those verdant shores, always exploring new locations and making new friends along the way.
When she’s not traveling, Jody is planning amazing Ireland vacation for families and groups, shuttling her daughters to dance and sports activities, or attending genealogy workshops hoping to find her first Irish ancestor to arrive in America. When she's not in Ireland Jody loves to load her family in their RV and explore ‘off the beaten track' across the US.
