Hi everyone,
I'm planing to visit Dublin and Howth again from november 2 to november 6. But this time, I would also like to go outside the city and visit other parts of the country for a few days. We are a family of 4 with two children of 9 and 12.
Since there's a lot to discover, I wonder maybe going for something slightly different from Dublin is better. Could you recomand some visits to do or places to go for a 1 or 2 nights stay ? What's the better way : by car or train ?
Many thanks ! 
Michel

Hi Michel,

I'm delighted to hear that you are planning a trip back to Dublin with your family!

There are many things you can do from Dublin. A visit to the heritage site of Newgrange, the medieval Kilkenny or the Wicklow Mountains for instance. They aren't too far away and very suitable for a day trip. What sort of activities and visits would you like to do?
We also have plenty of suggestions depending on your interests. 

If you are planning to be away for 1 or 2 nights, you can definitely go further away. Renting a car or taking the train are both great options, depending on where you want to go (a car might take you to places where trains aren't operating)

Please note that I can also help you in French if you prefer.

Talk soon,
Antoine

Bonjour Antoine, 

Merci beaucoup pour votre réponse! Et ces suggestions :) 

En fait, j'aurais voulu découvrir une autre facette de l'Irlande, peut-être moins urbaine que Dublin (qu'on adore). Je cherchais donc une escapade de deux jours/une nuit. Ne connaissant pas la région ni les conditions de circulation, je me disais que Galway était peut-être un peu trop éloigné. Kilkenny a l'air top. 
Tout en tenant compte que nous sommes avec 2 enfants, et que ce sera novembre (jmétéo + je suppose qu'il y aura des festivités liées à Halloween et les fêtes saintes ?).

Si par hasard vous aviez des tips sur Kelkenny (idées visites-musées, adresses locales - pubs, restos - j'aime bien aller où vont les locaux, et éviter les "pièges" à touristes).

En tous cas, merci pour votre aide! 

A bientot, 

Michel

Bonjour Michel,

Avec grand plaisir pour les suggestions ! 

Galway se trouve environ à 2H30 de Dublin, cela reste donc faisable pour un séjour de 2 jours et une nuit. Si l'ambiance des petites villes côtières vous attire, il y en a bien d'autres comme par exemple Kinsale, Cobh (comté de Cork) Dunmore East (comté de Waterford) ou encore Westport (Comté de Sligo)

Si le côté historique et traditionnel de Kilkenny vous a séduit d'emblée ainsi qu'à votre famille, je serais heureux de vous donner des conseils ! Nous avons une page avec les choses à y faire, comme le château et ses anciens pubs (les enfants accompagnés y sont admis jusqu'à 21h). 

Pour les événements et activités familiales dans la région, je vous invite à regarder le site family fun. Voici déjà un aperçu des festivités d'Halloween, Kilkenny est habituellement une ville où l'événement est bien célébré. 

N'hésitez pas à revenir vers nous si vous avez d'autres questions. 😊

Antoine
