Activities for kids in Dublin
When it’s not raining, pack a picnic and head down to Phoenix Park or St Stephen's Green, or take the kids to the Dublin Zoo to meet their favourite animals.
Otherwise, spend the day making waves at the Viking Splash Tour, let them pet the animals at Airfield Estate, watch a performance at the Lambert Puppet Theatre, learn about the wonderful world at Imaginosity or visit the Fry Model Railway.
