Family Days Out in West Ireland

While the activities can be a little more sparse than in other regions, with a bit of pre-planning the West of Ireland can offer a great family day out. You'll find Galway City to have the most offerings but neighbouring counties also have numerous ways to fill your days. Roads in some parts of the West can be narrow and winding, keep this in mind if you have a carload of hyper kids. 5 miles can feel like 100 in certain areas. The people of the West are famed for their hospitality and this is especially true for children. Expect a warm welcome and great attention to detail for all family members.

Galway City, Westport in County Mayo and Ennis in County Clare have the largest population in the West of Ireland, and so will have the greatest range of activities. Outside of these areas facilities become few and far between, getting from one to the next can sometimes be a matter of hours in a car.
