BAL­LY­MALOE HOUSE

One of the most fa­mous places to stay in the coun­try, this fam­ily-run coun­try house re­treat is known as one of the most im­por­tant cen­tres for Ir­ish cook­ing. There’s plenty of coun­try­side to ex­plore across the 400-acre es­tate in ru­ral East Cork, and large bed­rooms can ac­com­mo­date par­ents and kids. There’s also a home farm for the fam­ily to check out, and out­door ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages.

DIN­GLE SKELLIG HO­TEL

Ex­plore the wild west coast of Ire­land with your fam­ily and check into the Din­gle Skellig Ho­tel. The helpful staff will en­sure ev­ery­one stays en­ter­tained, as they sug­gest lo­cal events and help plan ac­tiv­i­ties in the great outdoors.

FOTA IS­LAND RE­SORT

One of Ire­land’s only ve-star ho­tels to be sit­u­ated on its own is­land, Fota Is­land Re­sort is just a 20-minute drive from Cork City and – thanks to a daily shut­tle ser­vice – a short trip from two pre­mier tourist at­trac­tions, Fota Wildlife Park and Fota House and Gar­dens. A chic and spa­cious 131-room re­sort with two ne restau­rants and a swim­ming pool, Fota Is­land’s fa­cil­i­ties and nearby at­trac­tions make it per­fect for fam­ily trips. Par­ents will also be glad to get a break from the kids in the world class spa, which boasts 18 treat­ment rooms where guests can en­joy mas­sages, hy­drother­apy and a ther­mal suite.
