Travel Mom Randee tells us all about her Dublin adventure with her husband and 2 little boys (2 and 5 years old).

How long was your trip?
Travel Mom Randee: On our way to Mallorca, we decided to go to Ireland first as we were getting a lot of client requests for Ireland, and I hadn’t been. It’s also a great transfer spot and stop over to Europe as it’s a shorter flight and a place where they speak English. So we spent 2 1/2 days in Dublin then a week in Mallorca.
Travel Mom Nicole: We had a 3-part end of summer adventure…Mallorca, Ibiza, and Marbella.
Mallorca is a really big island with lots of beaches to explore, so we were there for a week then 5 nights on Ibiza and 5 nights in Marbella.

Ibiza is a totally different landscape like a typical island. Lots of beach clubs. It’s known for night clubs, but we went to the beach clubs during the day. Even my son enjoyed it.
