Top 5 activities for family breaks in Dublin

There's so much to do in Dublin so whether the sun is beaming down on our Capital or the rain is pouring there are plenty of activities to keep adults and children happy. Below we list our top family attractions in Dublin.

Family Activities in Dublin City:

#1 Imaginosity

A world full of creativity and life. Imaginosity has everything to keep both child and parent fascinated and entertained. All the exhibits will not only educate you but will also get you thinking in a much more creative way about all walks of life. Booking in advance is a must for your 2 hour sessions. Bewleys Hotel Leopardstown is only 6 minutes’ drive away.

#2 Dublin Zoo

One of Dublin’s longest tourist attractions. Dublin Zoo is a great day out for the family, weather you are checking out the feeding of the animals or walking around the African Plains. You will be sure to get close to all the action. All of our Bewleys Hotels are in close proximity to Dublin Zoo and all have special family Dublin Zoo packages. Check our special offers section for the best family break packages.

#3 Rainforest Adventure Golf

A rainforest in Ireland is definitely a first but when it also includes mini golf it makes the perfect family activity. Ideally located in Dundrum near the shopping centre, Rainforest Adventure Golf is open 7 days a week from 10am.  Bewleys Hotel Leopardstown is only a few minutes drive away from this fantastic activity.

#4 Aqua Zone at the National Aquatic Centre

A place where all the kids can swim and play in the pirate ship and wave pools and where the parents or Big Kids can take to the water slides and re visit their childhood. Bewleys Hotel Newlands Cross offer family breaks including access to Aquazone.

#5 Tayto Park

A short drive outside Dublin Tayto Park has everything Irish and more for the children and parents. You can take a tour of the Tayto factory, play in the playground  and check out all the new activities added in 2015. All Bewleys Hotels in Dublin offer excellent family packages to Tayto Park.

For the best value Book your Family Break in advance!
