Dreams do come true – we know because we’ve been to Ashford Castle. The 800-year old Irish castle is listed as a National Geographic Unique Lodge of the World and is far and away one of the most magical places to visit on a family vacation.

Where else can you take a walk through the forest with the friendly resident hounds, learn the art of falconry, and eat like royalty – all in a day’s play?

Family guestrooms are just as magical because they’re filled with thoughtful touches like bathrobes and slippers in children’s sizes, a bedtime storybook featuring your child’s name, homemade cookies, a LEGO menu, and video games at the ready.

You didn’t fly the kids to Paris to stay in the same ol’ hotel room you would find at home. Not when you can embrace the exquisitely Parisian style of Le Bristol.

This iconic hotel is filled with character, from the friendly resident kitty cat, Fa-Raon, to the city views from your petit balcony, to the Michelin-starred restaurants on site. Le Bristol’s chic atmosphere is delightfully welcoming, and far from stuffy.

Get adjoining rooms, complete with a welcome package for the grown-ups and little ones. You can head upstairs for a family swim overlooking the Eiffel Tower, or to the Spa for some relaxing massages and skin treatments designed specifically for parents and their children.
