Dublin Zoo and Phoenix Park
Dublin Zoo is an obvious choice – you can spend few hours or a whole day wandering around. Get in early to see animal feeding times – the zoo-keepers are a 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.
Awesome Walls Dublin is one of the largest indoor climbing centres in Europe. With over 2000 square metres of dedicated climbing surface, more than 1000 square meters of bouldering, 18m lead walls and ~ 250 climbing routes; there really is something fun and challenging for everybody to try.
Learn about Dublin’s past, and how we have all been influenced by the Viking and Medieval eras, with magnificent artefacts on display - including those found at the famous Wood Quay excavations. Finish your visit by climbing an original medieval tower, a 96 step climb to the top, where you can see spectacular views of the city.
AquaZone 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!
