Why avoid travelling with your children, simply because they’re adults?
While many romanticise travelling with their children when they are young and impressionable, taking a holiday with your adult kids is where the long-lasting memories are made.
We’ve compiled the best family holiday destinations to take with your adult kids!
1. Dublin, Ireland
Dublin exudes excitement with its cobble-stoned streets, bohemian shops, thriving arts scene, historical attractions and hiking possibilities. There’s plenty to do here that’ll satisfy the needs of everybody in the family.
Rather a trip to the countryside? It’s only a day trip away with scenery that will have the whole family in awe.

2. New Orleans, USA
New Orleans is an amalgamation of culture; lights and celebration, and let’s just say that the people here know how to live ‘la vie en rose’!
If you’re a foodie family, then you’ve come to the right place because New Orleans is famous for its delicious Cajun and Creole foods (think jambalaya, gumbo, and king cake).
