One of our main aims for our Easter road trip in Ireland in 2018 was to visit as many castles as possible. Despite living in Ireland for 17 years, I hadn’t explored many of them and I was going to change that. So, when planning our itinerary, I put as many on the list as possible and plotted our route from there.

One thing we always seek out when visiting new places are castles. Ever since our son’s first visit to Tretower Castle at the age of two and a half, he has enjoyed visiting castles with us because we make a game out of it. It means we get to enjoy historical sites even with a young child in tow. We have visited some of the best castles to see in Ireland and Wales, but here is a list of the best castles to visit with kids in the world, compiled with the help of my fellow travel bloggers.
Ireland, or the Emerald Isle, is a country rich in history. Established by the Vikings over 1000 years ago, it is one of the best family destinations in Europe. From the world-famous Guinness brewery, to the Wild Atlantic Way, to the land of leprechauns, Ireland is a magical country with so much to offer everyone who visits, especially families. We’ve only just begun exploring our homeland as a family and part of that has been discovering some of the best castles in Ireland to visit with kids.
