3 days in Dublin with kids

My family (2 adults and 3 teens) will be in Dublin for 3 days in June. We are planning on visiting some traditional sites (Trinity College, Guiness tour, St. Patrick's Cathedral, etc) but are also looking for some fun / unusual things to do with the kids. Any suggestions?

The Viking Splash Tour is great fun - you might all enjoy that.

Are your kids into sport ....if so you could take them to Croke Park to learn all about Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie and Handball. There is also a separate company that can organise a training session for GAA sports.



Another fun thing to do is to hire bicycles at the entrance of the Phoenix Park and cycle around and explore the park.....I have seen people on tandems riding around and they look like they are having great craic.



Paddleboarding is becoming very popular over here at the moment, that might also be something you could try out.


Lots more things to do if you give us an idea of your interests.

You might like to consider a cycle tour, which I found very enjoyable - tripadvisor.ie/Attraction_Review-g186605-d18…
