Summer School Holidays in the UK & Ireland

Although often known abroad as vacations, breaks or recess, the UK school holidays are a time when the schools are closed for study and the children/students have an extended break.

In the Britain the school summer holidays tend to be about 6 weeks long, running from late to July until the end of August, with schools normally returning back in early September. Ireland tends to have a longer summer holiday, nearly 3 months.

This July-August period is when most British families will take their family holidays either in the UK or abroad when the weather is at its best. However, this does mean that the popular attractions and accommodation will be busy during this period.
