Parks & Playgrounds
Dublin has some excellent parks and playgrounds, ideal to spend a sunny day with your family. Pack a picnic in the kitchen of your serviced apartment accommodation in Dublin and take a short stroll to Herbert Park, one of the city’s most beautiful parks. There are sports grounds, a playground, a coffee shop and lots of green space so they can make their own fun. Closer to town, St Stephens Green is in the heart of the Grafton Street area and is a great place to spend an afternoon in the sun. Venture to Phoenix Park on the other side of the city and visit Dublin Zoo, one of Dublin’s most popular family attractions. The park also has playgrounds, walks, rolling fields, an exhibition centre and houses Ireland’s President, Michael D Higgins.
Rainy Day in Dublin
Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate with our plans, and we have to pivot to indoor activities quickly. We have a selection of cinemas and theatres in the city centre that always have something fun to keep your family entertained. Watch the latest children’s blockbusters in Savoy or Cineworld Cinemas in the city centre. Check the listings for shows in the Bord Gais, Olympia and Gaiety Theatre and see if there is anything you think your little ones would like. You can also pop into The Ark, Ireland’s premier children-focused cultural hub in Temple Bar. If you have small children, take them to an indoor play centre like Funky Monkey in Dundrum or Jump Zone in Liffey Valley. You can enjoy free admission to all state-owned museums and galleries, keeping your family trip educational and fun. There is always something going on in Dublin, no matter the weather.
Events in Dublin
Summer is event season in Dublin and hardly a weekend goes by without something fun happening from festivals to football. Dublin Dance Festival returns to Dublin from 16 – 28th May and brings together dancers from all over Ireland and the world. Encourage your little ones to try street dance, flamenco and traditional dances and that’s just the start of the fun. Dublin Literary Festival also returns in May and has a huge range of creative and clever ways to encourage children to explore new books and writing. Don’t forget the UK Champions League happens over the summer and there are plenty of GAA events in Croke Park for sports mad families.
