Things To Do In Wicklow With Kids, Piper Quinn Outside Sugar Loaf Mountain

Wicklow with kids, where to visit, sleep and eat.

Recently we paid a “blink and you’ll miss it” visit to County Wicklow in Ireland for a family gathering and really can’t believe we’ve left is so long to get there. It was Piper’s first visit to Ireland (she’s now 7!) and we all fell in love with the place and loved touring where Mr

The Windsor Suites, Philadelphia – Our Family Friendly Review

Arriving at the Windsor Suites in Philadelphia was a total breath of fresh air after the eight hour bus journey and rather cramped accommodation of Boston. The hotel is part of the Modus Hotels group and definitely lives up to their other city centre hotels. My daughter and I stayed for 3 nights in a standard suite and

Please Touch Museum Entrance

Family Friendly Philadelphia – our Please Touch Museum Review

When visiting Philly with kids there’s one place every family wants to try and that’s the Please Touch Museum Philadelphia. Just the name screams family friendly, after all I’m sure we’ve all spent half an hour in an interesting museum whispering to our kids not to touch/run/play and finally given up and gone home. The

Oh Boston, you are an embarrassment of amazingly family friendly museums! We didn’t expect anything could get close to the Boston Childrens Museum but found the Science museum, Boston to be equally fascinating.

Boston Children

Boston Childrens Museum

Although I don’t usually plan our travels based on just one venue we want to try out, Boston was a different story. I had heard and read so many great things about their children’s museum I knew we just had to visit before Piper got too old to really enjoy it. Was it worth the

Radisson Blu Mancehester Airport

Radisson Blu Manchester Airport

Do you stay at an airport hotel before an early flight? We normally just bite the bullet, get up mega early and drive. But for our last flight from Manchester, as it was just me and the six year old I didn’t fancy the pre-dawn drive and parking faff. So I started researching hotels near
