No land is more filled with magic than Ireland.  Even if you're past the age of believing in faeries (though I don't think you should ever stop believing in faeries) the moment your flight lands 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.

Ireland is a perfect destination for families

While many tourism guides make much of pub tours and guided bus travel, Ireland has so much to offer families.  From faerie tale castles to magnificent formal gardens, wide open spaces to the bustle of international cities, breathtaking natural scenery to man made megalithic structures, Ireland opens her arms and welcomes you to explore her ancient sites, traverse her green fields and discover her treasures.

Ireland has become my family's favorite destination, every trip feels like a homecoming.  Here at Ireland Family Travel I want to share the beauty of Ireland and the family friendliness that may not be so easy to find in the brochures.

I try to make it easy for readers to keep up with all the craic (fun) here at Ireland with Kids.
