If you’re tightening the purse-strings, think about a self-catering cottage – see our partner (with exclusive discounts for our newsletter subscribers) or The Landmark Trust ( with its quirky historical buildings such as lighthouse-keeper's cottages and even small castles. 

Many of Ireland’s atmospheric castle hotels offer family accommodation. See our feature on a Family Falconry Break at Ashford Castle. Or in Navan, Co. Meath, Bellinter House is a stunning Georgian boutique hotel with babysitting.

Another great family site is River Valley Holiday Park ( in Co. Wicklow, close to Brittas Bay with its fantastic beach.
