Best Things To Do with Kids in Winter in Dublin

Winter is here and already you can feel the weather getting chillier! Here are some of the places we're planning on visiting in Dublin with the kids over the coming months for the Best Things to Do With Kids in Winter in Dublin:


The Ark

The Ark in Temple Bar, D2 is Europe's first custom-built Children's Cultural Centre.  It promotes and hosts high quality cultural work which is by children, for children and about children. The Ark has some great winter programmes for kids this year.

The Wax Museum

Visitors to The Wax Museum are taken on a journey through Irish history, an enchanting children’s zone of discovery, Ireland’s only dedicated tribute to our top scientific inventors, a Green screen video room, a recording studio and all the exceptional life-like wax work characters.

The Science Gallery

The Science Gallery, TCD, Dublin 2 is a world first. A new type of venue where today's white-hot scientific issues are thrashed out and you can have your say. Events and exhibitions change regularly with many suitable for future scientists!
