In honor of this weekend’s Saint Patrick’s Day holiday, we thought we’d share family travel tips for road-tripping across the Emerald Isle. At under 200 miles wide—from coast to coast—Ireland is easily manageable without a tour guide (as long as you’re comfortable driving on the opposite side of the road!) and its landscape is flush with natural beauty. There is so much history to soak up even while driving from point to point (think castles alongside the road) and the main cities are easily walkable and populated by lovely locals.

Start with an adventurous family.
Pack the carry-on essentials into a lightweight and pocket-packed PPB Wistful Weekender, then tuck baby into a travel-ready Tour Guide baby Carrier. Lastly, grab a colorful camera. You’re going to want to document the blast the whole family will have while strolling the cobblestone lanes of Bairro Alto and taking in the breathtaking views from Saint George’s Castle. Oh, and don’t forget to treat yourselves to Pastel de Nata—Portugal’s delicious national pastry—when the craving for sweets calls.
And there you go: you and your favorite people are living it up in the inspiring Portuguese port city of Lisbon. Maps not required. (Though naps are.)
