Dublin Travel Guide

Dublin Kids Attractions

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

On a sunny day, why not pack a picnic basket and the 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 and features playgrounds, gardens and even some resident ducks that love to be fed. For very sunny days, you can take the DART to the pebble beach at Killiney, or the National Sea Life Centre in Bray a bit further on.

Enjoy farm animals and the smell of hay at one of the petting zoos or children''s farms, or for something a bit more diverse and exciting, why not jump on board one of Dublin''s hop on hop off big, red, double-decker sightseeing buses and take in all that this magical city has to offer.

When the sun hides behind the clouds and kids activities out doors are no longer an option, consider taking your kids to one of the many indoor playgrounds or museums, or even to watch a puppet show at Ireland''s only puppet theatre.
