If you’re planning a trip to Dublin with your family, you need to choose accommodation wisely. Don’t find yourself stuck in a cramped hotel room with nowhere to cook or separated from your partner paying double the cost for accommodation for two bedrooms. Instead, consider a serviced apartment in Dublin, a home-from-home experience that makes travelling with young children a pleasure rather than a penance. PREMIER SUITES offers premium serviced apartment accommodation in Dublin in the leafy suburb of Ballsbridge within walking or public transport of the city centre. We’re close to many residential areas making visiting family in Dublin easy and comfortable for everyone. Book on our website to enjoy our best available rates guaranteed.
Family Accommodation in Dublin
Hotel accommodation in Dublin can be lovely. With luxurious beds, fancy restaurants and 5-star service, they’re great for couples but not very practical for families, especially those travelling with toddlers. When you choose a serviced apartment over a hotel you’ll still have comfortable guest rooms, 5-star service and so much more. Our accommodation in Dublin has more space, facilities, and comfort for families than a hotel. Each suite has a fully equipped kitchen making family meals or preparing snacks so much easier. The living space in each suite makes entertaining a toddler easy with plenty of space, TV, Wi-Fi and more. Bath night won’t be a struggle with our family-sized bathroom and there is plenty of space to store a stroller and other baby baggage.
Family Activities in Dublin
As much as Dublin is popular for nightlife, it caters to a family-friendly crowd as well. It’s a very walkable city with many of the biggest and most popular family attractions located in or close to the city centre.
Dublin Zoo is one of the best family attractions in Dublin located on the edge of the city and easily reachable by public transport. There are hundreds of species to fascinate even the smallest family members and playgrounds for all ages. It’s a fun educational day out and your little one is sure to see something they have never seen before!
Parks and playgrounds are always popular with families, even if you’re here during less favourable weather. Located right in the centre of Dublin, St. Stephen’s is a historic, Victorian park and garden of 27 acres, and it has a large impressive playground! Merrion Square Park has a Giants Playground suitable for toddlers and children and if they get bored, a walk in either park is sure to tire them out.
If you can’t face the elements, Dublin has several indoor soft play areas too although you’ll need to venture outside of the city. A short drive from accommodation in Ballsbridge is Dundrum, the home of many fun family days out. There is a soft play centre called Funky Monkeys that has sections for younger and older children, and they have a 2-hour play window. Dundrum also has a great cinema and plenty of family-friendly restaurants.
Wax Museum Plus
Unassuming, aside from the lineup of superheroes outside(!), the National Wax Museum Plus is a hit with children of all ages. Take the opportunity to visit all of your favourite characters spanning all generations. Take photos and enjoy props and interactive activities during your visit. Give them something to tell they’re little classmates about when they come home. Be mindful not to visit the horror zone with young children as it may do more harm than good for little imaginations – but parents are sure to get a kick out of it.
