No email, No work talk, Plenty of naps… What are your family Holiday Rules?  is challenging families across the country to put their Holiday Rules Charter to the test.
This is a fun but essential way to make the most of your family holiday in Ireland and create some everlasting memories. It’s about forgetting (or at the very least trying to) about your daily grind and is a perfect companion to help you relax, unwind and discover Ireland this summer. So why not switch off those emails, relax, unwind and try out the nation’s favourite holiday rules.
Orla Carroll, Head of Marketing & eBusiness, Fáilte Ireland said; "The public were very responsive to the Holiday Rules campaign and we are thrilled to launch our Holiday Rules Charter. We hope the rules help families enjoy taking a break in Ireland even more this summer."
So wherever you go in Ireland this summer, make sure to download a copy of the Holiday Rules Charter on before you go! Or why not to tell them your holiday rule on or tweet @discoverirl #holidayrules.
