Another South Wales castle that BattleKid had been to before we started our dragon hunting adventures, this castle was located less than 30 minutes from our house. And yet, for some reason had eluded us until just before we left the UK for our new life in Portugal. Well, we had to rectify that. And so, a dragon hunting adventure at Raglan Castle was planned, and BattleKid and I finally did it one February afternoon. Continue reading “A Dragon Hunting Adventure at Raglan Castle”

Planning your family vacation can be a real challenge. Usually, people follow their first impulse and book in one of the all-inclusive resorts available. Easy, and definitely tempting, it is what many of us would consider a decent opportunity to take a break from the urban jungle. But a true family vacation should provide a meaningful, educational and bonding experience that your kids will remember for years to come.
We have been frequent visitors to Caerphilly Castle during our years of living in Wales. BattleKid had been a few times before we decided to take him on a dragon hunting adventure at Caerphilly Castle. He even met the original dragon, Dewi, one bank holiday weekend during which we visited the castle with my Dad and sister who were visiting. But somehow our dragon hunting adventures didn’t start until after that first encounter with a dragon. That said, during our last visit we got a big surprise.
Ireland, or the Emerald Isle, is a country rich in history. Established by the Vikings over 1000 years ago, it is one of the best family destinations in Europe. From the world-famous Guinness brewery, to the Wild Atlantic Way, to the land of leprechauns, Ireland is a magical country with so much to offer everyone who visits, especially families. We’ve only just begun exploring our homeland as a family and part of that has been discovering some of the best castles in Ireland to visit with kids.
During our time in Ireland, BattleKid and I visited several castles. Our intention was to go dragon hunting at each of these castles as we had never been dragon hunting in Ireland before. My sister and niece were joining us for our Easter visit to Blarney Castle, which is situated in County Cork. We were also given complimentary entry to the castle in return for this review. Here I am going to share with you our review and tell you how to have an awesome day out at Blarney Castle with Kids. Continue reading “Blarney Castle with Kids: How to Have an Awesome Day Out”
