The best way to get to know a new place is to look into its past but museums can get boring for little ones who would prefer to run around. Luckily, many of the museums in Dublin are exciting for young and old, with exhibitions and activities for children of all ages. The National History Museum has a fascinating Bog Body to teach your children about preservation, the Natural History Museum has all of their favourite animals and the brilliant Dublinia is a truly fascinating look at Vikings in Ireland. One of the most interesting attractions in Dublin that lives up to its name is EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum. It’s interactive exhibits and fascinating displays have won them the title of Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction in the World Travel Awards numerous times.
Rainy Days in Dublin
Unfortunately, we’re well used to rainy days in Dublin but we’re well prepared with a lot of indoor activities to keep big and little kids entertained while they stay dry. Museums and galleries are a great start, giving you a fun and educational afternoon activity. The National Wax Museum allows your family to meet its heroes from sports stars to cartoons and lots of chances for a photo opportunities. Funky Monkeys in Dundrum is an indoor soft play centre ideal for younger children and Jumpzone Sandyford is perfect for active youngsters and teens. Dundrum also has shopping and a state of the art cinema showing all of the latest releases in high definition, a great place to spend a rainy afternoon.
Outdoor Fun for Families in Dublin
It’s not all doom and gloom with the weather in Dublin. Even in Winter, we have bright sunny days that you can make the most of. Why not take DART to the coastline and enjoy a walk on the beach or if you’re brave, a dip in the Irish Sea? Bray, nearby in Wicklow, has a great hike to the top of Bray Head that is suitable for children, and you can finish with a flutter on the amusements and a bag of chips on the beach. You could even take yourselves on a boat and explore with Dublin Bay Cruises or try your hand at kayaking! You can discover local parks and playgrounds for free and there are always other children to play with.
For some families, the idea of being dragged around the shops is a nightmare but others cannot wait to find something new and unique in a new place. Dublin is a mecca for shopping with something to suit all budgets and tastes. You can choose between shopping in the city or out in Dundrum where you’ll find an excellent selection of shops in the Town Centre. Teens will love high street favourites like H&M, Zara and River Island while more discerning shoppers will spend their time in Brown Thomas and other luxury shops. There are toy shops galore to spend pocket money such as Smyths, Bamba, Art & Hobby & Build-a-Bear. Afterwards, grab a bite to eat in the dozens of dining options or pop into the cinema to finish off a great day.
