Ireland with Kids - Cork

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.

Customer Testimonial


Hi Tina,

Please forgive me for not writing my thanks sooner.

My mother and I had an absolutely wonderful time in your lovely country. Ireland is all we had hoped for and more. Using your services was so very helpful. Thanks for arranging our route and B&B's, and for all the great sight-seeing information. The B&B's in Kinsale, Doolin, and Galway were quite pleasant; clean, nicely decorated, comfortable, good food, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful & the Manor in Killarney was outstanding.

We will recommend you to our friends and family.
