Rainy Day Activities for Kids in Cavan

Has the rain got you cooped up indoors again ? Are you looking fun ideas for kids on a rainy day? Here’s Rainy Day Activities for Kids in Cavan.

Indoor Play Centres

Let them run off some steam while you have a coffee at one of the indoor play centres such as:

Kool Kidz in Ballinagh Road in Cavan who have a 3 lane slide, air guns, soccer pitch as well as a climbing wall.

Or take the family bowling to Astra Bowl, in Cavan town – it’s great for burning energy & having a few laughs too!

Catch a Movie!

Who doesn’t love popcorn and a good movie? Take in a movie at Odeon Cavan, a great way to while away some hours.

Alternatively, why not enjoy all the fun of the cinema, without ever leaving home, by creating your own home cinema experience? Get the kids involved in setting up the cinema, arranging seating, making tickets etc. then sit back and relax!

Go Swimming!

Pack up the togs and head for a swim at Cavan Swimming Pool & Leisure Complex or Bailieborough Swimming Pool & Leisure Centre or one of the larger hotels.

Most pools have public swimming times and are open most days of the year.

Cavan County Museum

The Cavan County Museum is located at Ballyjamesduff, Co. Cavan, and  is a great way to learn about Cavan’s rich history. The museum houses a medieval dug out boat and sheela-na-gigs, galleries on folk life in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, the great famine, Percy French & the GAA. Look out for the 3-faced Corleck Head.There’s a coffee shop and playground too, if the weather clears up.

Get Reading!

Visit your local library.  All libraries in the county have a junior section.  Great for a rainy afternoon – go and read with the children or take part in many of the free events and activities that take place.

Check out library opening times before you make plans.

Why not stop by your local bookstore and treat the kids to a new book.  Spend time browsing for that special book and go home and read it together.

Get Outside

Sometimes, you have just got to get out and get wet!

Put on the raingear and wellies and go for a walk in the rain.  Most kids love splashing in puddles, and sometimes it’s a great way to release pent-up energy from being cooped up inside. Here’s our Top 10 Things to do Outside in Rain for some ideas!

Warm up afterwards with a hot bath/shower, dry clothes and hot chocolate. Then, why not pull out a board-game or snuggle up on the couch with a movie – a perfect end to a wet day!
