I live in NI so will be driving to any location.

It is myself and two DCs aged 6 and 10(by next summer)

Summer past we went glamping for a week in river valley caravan and camping park in Wicklow. It was fantastic. We are not keen on being restricted to the campsite/hotel(if we choose that) so wicklow was brilliant for local interests. We would be happy to glamp again, or stay in a hotel or BnB that wasnt too expensive. Keen on family friendly locations with lots of options for eating out, entertainment, places of interest etc. we can go anytime in july or august. We would like to go for between 4-7 days with a budget of £350 for accommodation only. Ireland and Northern Ireland both considered.

Any recommendations and tips on how to reduce costs greatly received.

What about Westport (camp at Westport house) it's lovely. Loads to do. Great b&b accommodation too.

Zorbing, train rides, theme park at the house. Castelcourt hotel great and has pool.

Enniscrone in Sligo is great and has an amazing beach. At the other end of the country, Waterford and surrounding area has loads to do and see- beach and traditional seaside entertainments at Tramore, lighthouse at Hook Head, Passage East ferry, Waterford heritage city, there is always something going on there with seemingly endless little festivals. The Spraoi festival the first weekend in August is particularly great but the city is booked out completely so get in now if you are planning to be in the area.

Clonakilty in cork has lots going on, some lovely restaurants and beaches etc. Kenmare in kerry is fab too.

Kilkee in Co Clare ..... Not got a huge amount of "organised" stuff more make your own entertainment, so probably is cheap (I.e. Brilliant beach!)
