Family holiday to Britain?

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if people could recommend a way my family can see Scotland and Ireland? We have a 6 year old who can be quite difficult and just wondered if anyone's had done a cruise around Scotland and Ireland? And if so did you see much? Or was it not great? Also any other suggestions would be really appreciated! Or should we just wait and go alone? Like is it boring for kids?

Thanks a bunch xx

What do you mean exactly by "difficult"? As in hyperactive? Travel by train or car are good ways to see those countries. For cruise info check Cruise Critic.

Not really hyperactive, just very scared of everything!

If your child isn't ready for travelling, then you may want to delay your travel plans.

While there are cruises around the UK and Irish coasts, these tend to cater for an older age group, and so your child may become bored.

The North Sea, English Channel and Irish coasts can also be a bit rough. While cruise ships cater very well for such conditions, if your child suffers from any type of motion sickness, he/she may not enjoy this type of holiday.

Had you considered a farm stay, or a two centre trip, and travelling by car or train?
