Exploring Ireland with a family Road Trip 

Ireland is wonderful. They enchant the green of its meadows, the white of its cliffs, the blue of the sea that surrounds it. A perfect holiday destination with children for three main reasons.

First, to live in freedom in contact with nature and be fascinated by ancient legends and mythological characters.

Second, to go hunting for Leprechauns and find out if a big pot of gold coins are hidden at the bottom of the rainbow.

Third, to visit the ten most beautiful places and be inspired by postcard settings or to experience adventures that children will hardly forget.

And here is the list of the best places for a family road trip

1) Wild Atlantic Way

One of the most spectacular routes in the world, enough to compete with the Australian Great Ocean Road or the Pacific Coast Highway in California. A 2500 kilometer-long coastal path is stretching from County Donegal to County Cork.

Fishing, kayaking, climbing, beach stops, bike rides, camping holidays and moonlight bonfires. Here are all the ingredients to leave even the most demanding children amazed and to build precious memories.

2) Giant’s Causeway

The “pavement of the giant,” a natural wonder included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The legends linked to this spectacular place are many and have the protagonist the giant Finn McCool.

That the giant built the passage to reach his beloved who lived in Scotland or to defeat Angus, another giant rival, does not matter. Children cannot but be fascinated by the stories and this place full of mystery.

3) Cliffs of Moher

These cliffs overlooking the ocean, among the highest in Europe, are perhaps the most famous attraction in Ireland. The landscape here is truly breathtaking. Recently a path has been realized to be able to admire it in complete safety even with children who will not be indifferent to this grand spectacle. The modern Visitors Center of the Cliffs of Moher also explains to young and old how the cliffs were formed through multimedia panels, videos, movies, and games.

4) Titanic Belfast

The Titanic Belfast, with the same height and exactly the same capacity of 3,547 people of the famous ship, since 2012 welcomes visitors who are amazed by this impressive construction.

The museum traces the history of the most famous transatlantic of all time and celebrates the pride of the naval engineering tradition of this city. Interactive panels, videos, interviews of the survivors, special effects and a 3D cave that allows the complete tour of the ship. A masterpiece that will surely fascinate even the boys.

5) Dublin

Dublin does not need big presentations. It is one of the oldest cities in Europe and offers a lot to families with children. From the new National Leprechaun Museum in Dublin, the Viking Museum and medieval history, from the Viking Splash Tour, an unusual city tour with a Viking hat on top, the zoo, the majestic Trinity College library at the Guinness Storehouse, as you may see Dublin knows how to fascinate and excite the whole family.

How to have a safe family road trip

When you organize a family road trip safety should be your number one priority, especially once you plan to hire a car and explore Ireland driving all over its beautiful and most remote spots.

This is the reason why you need vehicle insurance for the road trip. I got my comprehensive car insurance from theaa.ie which is an Irish online insurance comparison website. Here you can create your own option customizing all you need for a safe & secure family road trip experience.
