Things to do with baby in Dublin North

Have you a new baby? If so congratulations!!! We have some suggestions and tips for getting out and about with baby in Dublin North. If there is anything we have forgotten please let us know


Join a local Parent and Baby/Toddler Group. Most groups meet weekly. Parent and Baby groups can be an invaluable source of information, a great way to meet other parents and chat about the ups and downs of life with a baby. Its great to be able to talk to other people in the same situation as you because no matter how great your friends are, unless they have a baby themselves, they just aren’t all that interested in how baby sleeps or when to wean! Most groups meet weekly, check out our Parent and Baby/Toddler Group listings for more information.

Several cinemas in Dublin  including Movies @ Dundrum  and UCI in Tallaght hold weekly parent and baby screenings. You can catch up with the latest releases, bring the buggy and not worry about baby disturbing other cinema goers. With a bit of luck your baby will fall asleep on your lap and you can sit back and enjoy the movie! Other cinemas like UCI Coolock & UCI Blanchardstown will allow you to bring your baby to most films before 7pm and you will not be charged if the baby is on your lap!Check out our Cinema listings for more info!
