Dublin Zoo and Phoenix Park

Dublin Zoo is obvious choice – you can spend few hours or a whole day in it, walking around. Get in early to see feeding times for different animals and make your way to those then – keepers are great source of information and your kids will absolutely love them! The African Plains is a great addition to the zoo, and seeing the animals up close is really exciting for the kids.

Rainforest Adventure Golf

LUAS ride away from city centre, this mini golf is set in Dundrum. Mini golf set in rainforest? Sounds amazing and your kids will love it!

Aqua Zone at the National Aquatic Centre

This is like an underwater playground for kids: there's a pirate ship and wave pool as well as a few water slides, so there's plenty of things to do. There are few great grown up slides as well, so parents can swap on the babysitting duty and try really cool rides in the meantime!

Sea Life Bray

Sea Life Bray – little bit further out, but right on the Dart Line, Sea Life is a great aquarium! There is loads of different sea life for kids to see, including sea horses, black tip sharks and leopard sharks. Make sure to go for a walk around Bray after you’ve been to the aquarium – there are plenty of coffee shops and lovely restaurants to try!

Dublin splash tour

Don’t you want to dress up like Viking and roar as you tour Dublin? This is perfect way to see Dublin, tour guides are great fun and your kids will love their Viking hats!
