Family fun holidays


Ireland is one of those places that people actually have on their bucket list to see and experience. With beautiful countryside and rugged coastlines there literally is something to suit everyone. Whether it is places like County Wicklow, famed for the Wicklow way walks, the fabulous countryside and the Irish sea coastline where staying at places like the Powerscourt Hotel give you the ideal rest spot. You have the city of Dublin for a little more fun and activity in the city, or you have other places like Cork or Galway to explore. You could even consider staying in an Airbnb or a camping adventure for something a little different.


Wales might be a little closer to home, but that doesn’t mean that it is any less a great holiday destination for you and your family. Traditionally, heading to Wales may see you enjoying the nostalgic caravan holiday. With so many parks in some of the best location including the isle of Anglesey, Aberystwyth and Abersoch, to name a few. With beautiful beaches and fabulous tourist attractions all over Wales, there really is a lot to see and do that the whole family can get on board with. Again, if you do like the hustle and bustle of a city, the in the South you have Cardiff which is full of museums and shopping opportunities to enjoy.

The Canary Islands

Maybe you want to head somewhere warm, and I don’t blame you as our track records of glorious hot days tends to be a three day heatwave every now and again. So the Canary Islands are a real popular destination with families. Islands like Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria are full of family friendly resorts and hotels that you can stay in. The Canary Islands are also known for being great value for money, not just in the holiday package, but also the amount you spend when you are there. Plus the weather is always looking pretty good.


Finally, there has been a lot of mention about Turkey in recent news, after the terror attack, Brits were warned not to travel there. This has since been lifted and with added measures in place the travel companies are offering some great deals to boost the tourism side of things there once more. Turkey has always been a popular holiday destination, and again is filled with family friendly resorts to occupy the whole family. It could definitely offer you the summer holiday you want without the huge price tag.

I hope this has given you some inspiration for some fun family holidays.
