Things to see and do with kids in Dublin

Dublin Kids Attractions

This beautiful, historic and very green city offers plenty of outdoor activities and attractions for children on holiday. With breathtaking scenery, a Viking history and a number of interesting old buildings, castles and cathedrals to explore, Dublin is a sightseeing paradise for visitors of all ages.

On a sunny day, visitors can pack a picnic basket and frisbee, and head down to Phoenix Park for a relaxing day in Europe's largest urban park. St. Stephen's Green is also a great spot to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. It features playgrounds, gardens and even some resident ducks that love to be fed. For very sunny days, visitors can take the DART to the pebble beach at Killiney, or the National Sea Life Centre in Bray.

Families can spend time with farm animals at one of the city's petting zoos or children's farms, or jump on board one of Dublin's double-decker sightseeing buses. Another original and exciting way to see Dublin's sights is aboard the Viking Splash Tour's amphibious World War II craft, which travels on both land and water.

When the sun hides behind the clouds and outdoor activities are no longer an option, visitors can take children to one of the many indoor playgrounds or museums, or to watch a puppet show at the Lambert Puppet Theatre.
