Planning a family break?
Family breaks are a great way to relax and reconnect with your loved ones. We all know how easy it is to get bogged down with day-to-day life and there's no better way to refresh and have some fun with the kids than to get away from it all on a family break.

At SchoolDays.ie, we've brought together a great selection of family breaks throughout Ireland and all at great prices. Specifically designed to coincide with the school holidays and mid-term breaks, our selection of offers ranges from stays at gorgeous countryside hotels to beachfront B&Bs.

We also have information on a selection of kids camps and summer camps, giving you the chance to relax without having to worrying about the kids.


Places to go on your family break
Where you go on your family break depends on your interests and how much time you have. The time of year might also have an influence on your choice of destination.

At SchoolDays.ie, we have information on family break packages in locations all over Ireland and you can choose from self-catering holidays to all-inclusive excursions with access to gorgeous swimming pools and luxurious spas.

If you're looking to spend some time on the coast, take a family break in seaside town. You'll find plenty of family-friendly activities, from exploring the seashore and soaking up a bit of sun, to trying some water sports and even visiting some historical sites.

A family break further inland can also be a great way to spend the school holidays. If you like to spend time outdoors, you may enjoy leisurely walks through the countryside, exploring the sites of the villages or even getting in a bit of shopping.

When's the best time to go on a family break?
Irish schools have a number of breaks throughout the year, all of which provide great opportunities to take a family holiday. To help you schedule your next family break, we've put together a basic guide on when the school holidays happen. You can also check our school calendar for specific school holiday dates. Be sure to double-check the dates with your school, though, as they can sometimes vary.

The summer holiday runs throughout July and August for primary schools, with the addition of June for secondary schools.

The first school mid-term break is the October school holiday - often referred to as the Halloween school holiday - and it is usually the last week of October.

The Christmas school holiday lasts between 17 and 21 days and usually goes from the last school day before the 23rd of December to the first weekday after the 6th of January.

The second school mid-term break lasts from two to five days for primary schools and one week for secondary schools. It's generally taken in the middle of February.

The Easter school holiday lasts for 10 school days (16 days inclusive) and begins a week before Easter. It finishes the second Monday after Easter.

Of course, there are also the nine bank holidays and a number of in-service days, all of which provide a long weekend that could be ideal for a short family break.

Check our school calendar for more specific dates for the current school year.
