Our first family holiday has just ended. We had a fantastic jam packed week full of brilliant memories. We travelled all the way to Ireland’s Ancient East and settled ourselves down for a week in Kilmore, County Wexford. The thoughts of travelling on a plane, train or boat with Little Bean was stressful enough so we decided a Staycation in the sunny South East would do. And boy did it do! And boy was it sunny! What a week! Here’s our itinerary and tips and tricks to make it through some of the icredible things Wexford has to offer with a four and a one year old.
Don’t hate me but yes I’m already thinking about Summer Holidays. For the first time in my life, I have already booked a family holiday for the Summer. No, we’re not going to Spain or Disneyland, although they were options that soared out of our price range even with the sales. Instead we’re taking the kids on their very first family holiday to a self catering house on a rural organic farm in Wexford. The beach, the quiet, the sunsets, the reminder of the magic of family holidays when I was a kid. I genuinely can’t wait for this staycation.
We are finally on another weeks holidays! Thank Pete for annual leave. Working full time really makes B and I appreciate the days we have off with A. We’ve been planning this week since the beginning of July and coming up with ideas and fun things to do each day. Yes, it is another Staycation. And why not? There are so many fantastic things for us to do. Money is a smidge on the tight side as we are getting some essential maintenance and upgrades done on our house. Never fear! We have come up with some really fun and cheap days out for next week. We are blessed with so many things to do! Here are our top five free Fun Days Out in North County Dublin and some ideas if you have a bit of pocket money handy.
