Going to Portugal for the Gibralter match with the family and bringing the daughter to her first game. I'm looking forward to it, but she'll be 1 year a 4 months in October so might be at an awkward age.
For those who have brought young kids before have ye regretted it? Or keep family and away days separate?
At least the Algave will just be like a sun holiday, whereas a city match might be different again.

The other half has been to a few aways before in Stockholm and last time playing Gib in Faro, but they were a bit of duds cos Stockholm was too spread out, and not much craic post match in Faro.
Vienna was the best away trip for her, but there was a karaoke involved.

brought my daughter to the last Gibraltar game in Faro for her first game mind you she was a bit older. However by staying in albufeia your mixing up a sun/family holiday and an away trip with the away trip being the match and the eve of the game
time is the stuff that life is made of, don't waste it.

Only you can answer that question.

My kids when they were very young wouldn't have liked it so I never brought them, I brought my 10 year old to Denmark a few years ago and even then he was bored up until he met someone his own age and then he had a great time.


It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

I’ve a couple of young lads and my theory is that I won’t be taking to live games until they are happy enough to sit through most of an Ireland match on tv.

Bring them to a home game first IMO. I brought my 5yo to the FAI cup final last year, lots of food/snacks involved to get them through 2 hrs

Bringing our little one to Greece in June, she'll be two in July. 

To be honest it's a chance to get to the game during a family holiday in a place that has enough to keep us busy for the length of time we are there.

As Kev says the match for us still be a few drinks the day before and going to the match itself. 

Will see how it goes, will do the same for Gibraltar if it works well.

Don't think I'll be in any rush to do this again.
Think we went to more pharmacy's than pubs. Went with a friend and their 2 kids and between his and my 1 year old they all came down with something while over there.
Also the weather was sh*t. Just don't think I'd be willing to go on holidays till she's about 5, it's some hassle.

Disagree. We had a great holiday (like Greece).

The only problem was that there was no buggy allowed in and no assistance from the security or police. No left luggage spot. Was advised to "leave it under a tree".

I missed the game as a result but the missus and kid got in.

Saint Tom: Had a great time bringing the family to the Ireland game.

Also Saint Tom: Missed the Ireland game because of bringing the family.

Had a lovely afternoon pint in the sun last Monday afternoon exchanging funny faces with Saint Tom's daughter so I would disagree on this!

Was only a few showers where I was, thought the weather was perfect. Just obviously unlucky with the kids getting sick.

Brought our little man into the game in Paris, was the end of a couple of weeks holidays. I'd have no issues doing it again and great way for him/us to travel. 

Definitely, a different buzz of an away trip but that's no harm. Already looking at making a decent spin out of the potential Scandinavian games in next year's Nations League.
