Greece or Ireland?

My husband and i are planning a family vacation to either Greece or Ireland in the next 5yrs. I would much rather go to Greece since i have family roots there, but dont want to make conflict. I also have 2 friends from Greece on CM that i have been chatting with for a couple of years that i would love to meet. I think it is pretty clear where we will end up going, but would like to hear a little something about both places from other moms that may have been to either of these wonderful places.

  • Ireland is beautiful- my husband and children are actually dual US/Irish citizens. I have never been to Greece, but i hear it's beautiful- I think the climate of Greece offers a wider range of outdoor activities.

  • I lived in Santorini and Corfu for a while. I love the Cycladic islands. From here, you can take a boat to Kusadasi, Turkey for a couple nights. I'd really do Greece and the food will be great. I've been four times and would go back in a second but the flight is a little long for our kids. As it turns out, we're going to Ireland (tix booked) in August. Keep in touch with me and I'll let ya know what I think of Ireland too!
