Lismore Castle and Gardens, located in County Waterford on the banks of the River Blackwater, is a great place to visit with kids. While the castle is not open to the public as it is a private residence, the stunning gardens are. Here is my post all about visiting Lismore Castle with kids, something I did during our Easter road trip in Ireland.
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.
During our Easter road trip in Ireland, my son and I visited quite a few castles. One which was top of my list was Bunratty Castle and Folk Park in County Clare. Why, you may ask? Because Mr Passports and I were Lord and Lady of the Manor once upon a time. But more on that later. In this post I’m going to share with you our time there and tell you how you too can enjoy visiting Bunratty Castle with kids.
The Rock of Cashel is a formidable looking structure sitting on top of a hill in Cashel, County Tipperary. This famous historic site is a popular tourist attraction in Ireland. Visiting the Rock of Cashel with kids is fun and enjoyable and can easily be combined with other attractions in County Tipperary for a fun family day out in Ireland.
