Ireland Family Vacation - Ballycotton 7 Nights
Overview For the Family Tour of Ireland - Ballycotton Base
We have chosen Ballycotton Bay in East Cork as the base location for your family tour of Ireland. With a rich maritime and historical heritage, East Cork has a unique variety of attractions to offer the discerning family. This corner of Cork really is a sanctuary for Ireland family vacations with a huge range of attractions and activities to keep adults and kids alike entertained. The beautiful Ballycotton Bay which stretches for about 25 km east to Knockadoon Head will be at your doorstep and family sightseeing in nearby Cobh, Youghal, Midleton and even further afield can be easily accessed.
Your Accommodation For This Tour: The Garryvoe Hotel
We understand that it is often difficult for families to move from location to location so our Ireland with Kids tours are ‘one-centred’ and organised in such a way as you would just collect your car, drive to your hotel and check in for the duration of your stay. When you confirm your tour with us you will receive an inclusive tour pack which will include various day tours that you can chose to take from your base location. You may decide to do all of the tours, a small selection of them or you might simply choose to enjoy the great family facilities of your hotel and its surroundings.
Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner. You did a wonderful job with our hotels/B&Bs. Our only wish was that we could have had more time at each stop. However we covered a fair bit.
Our only disappointment was that we didn't have time to go to Kylemore Abbey. We hadn't bargained on the large amount of travelling and sightseeing we were doing from Limerick over to Cliffs of Moher, through Burren country then out to Clifden. We dropped our gear off at the B&B in Clifden and drove out to Kylemore but it had closed and next morning it didn't open till 9.30 by which time we felt we wouldn't have time to get all the way back to Dublin for Tom and Andrea to catch their flight. So all in all that was mismanagement on our part, we would have been better off staying in Galway and seeing what there was to see round there. There'll be another time.
So thank you very much for the part you played in organising our holiday and also for refunding Margie and Andrew Logan's share of the accommodation.
