About Us

One Parent Holidays is a travel and leisure break company dedicated to finding child friendly destinations for single parent family holidays.

We had our very first Group Trip for our One Parent Families to meet and mingle on Monday October 28th and Tuesday October 29th 2013 of the mid-term break in Cork City, and we had a fantastic time. Our second trip was equally successful, and we went to Carlow this time, during the February 2014 mid-term break. We stayed at the luxurious Talbot Hotel for February 17th & 18th, and met more lovely parents and children. By the end of the trip the children were firm friends, and we’re really looking forward to our next trip at Easter.

Check out the details on the Group Trips page, keep updated on future trips by requesting to be added to the mailing list, and contact us directly to book your place, we look forward to seeing you at the next one!

One Parent Holidays can cater for all budgets and family-sizes, from a leisure break in Ireland and very soon to include a holiday abroad with other single parent families. Traveling as the only adult with children can be daunting, and most rates cater for a minimum two adults rather than being tailored to you and your children. This is where we come in.

Travel with other single parents on a leisure break or holiday abroad, keep the children entertained with child friendly One Parent Holiday destinations, and reduce the cost of your One Parent Holiday by sharing larger self-catering accommodations with other One Parent Holiday families. Or simply travel as you are, as a single parent with your children in any of our child friendly properties.

Whatever you’re looking for, for your next leisure break or holiday abroad, we’re here to help!

Meet other single parents with children of similar ages on our One Parent Holidays Facebook Page, and follow Aisling’s blog to keep up with her One Parent Holidays adventures. Have fun browsing our site, check back for new destinations, and join in the conversation on our Facebook page to meet like-minded single parents to let us know where you want to go.

Happy Holiday Hunting!

    • Hi Rebekah,
      It does indeed include breakfast on both mornings for everyone, a hot buffet on the day or arrival, evening meal on the second day, and a range of supervised activities for the kids so the adults have a little free time 🙂 I’ll send you on the details of the trip now, and add you to our mailing list so that you are in the loop for all of the future events. -Rose

    could you add me to the mailing list please. Could you also tell me the age range of the parents that go?

    • Hi Sinead,
      I’ll add to our mailing list, and will forward you the latest email about the Easter Trip to Kilkenny. The parents we’ve met so far, range from late 20’s to early 40’s, but we haven’t yet met some of the parents for the upcoming trip so until we’re doing this a while and have a few regulars it’s impossible to know what to expect! Hopefully we’ll see you there! 🙂

    Hi Rose, I live in Essex England, you cater for one parent families living in Ireland, do you know of a group that does this sort of thing in England? ones I have looked at have been exubrient prices I cannot entertain. Your site sounds very warm and welcoming. I would like to take my 7 year old son away in the school holidays, it is a scary thought travelling alone any ideas would be much appreciated.

    • Hi Tasha, I have a few trips in the UK planned, and of course you’re more than welcome to join us on any in Ireland or abroad. I have had families join the group trips from outside of Ireland, most recently from Canada and Scotland. If you see a trip you like just let me know and I can send on the booking details. Once everyone is confirmed for a trip I email the group to introduce you all, so you’ll know what to expect in terms of numbers, and at that point parents would normally say hi, share mobile numbers, arrange to meet at the airport, etc. I just need your children’s names and ages to book you on any trip 🙂

  25. Hi

    I have two sets of twins 13 & 15 – would you have any holidays that would cater for us. I see most of them are for adult and 3 kids and what is the average age range in your holidays?


    • Hi Emma, I have families with as many as 5 children join us on holidays before, and I can certainly quote you for your family. We have a varied range of ages on the holidays, but if you let me know which ones interest you I can always let you know who is already booked and the ages of the children. Just email me at info@oneparentholidays.ie 🙂 Rose

    • Hi Ann Marie, I have a couple of widowed Parents already on the roster, although I couldn’t guarantee when they would holiday, I can assure you that the other families are all single parents, parenting alone and happy for company on a holiday in Ireland or sometimes more importantly, abroad. If you’d like I can email you the ages of children already booked on a holiday you might be interested in. Some start with a holiday in Ireland to find their feet, others would just like to get out of the country. If you email me I can send you more info info@oneparentholidays.ie – Rose 🙂
