Go on an Epic Adventure in Dublin

EPIC Ireland tells the story of the Irish diaspora. Using the latest impressive interactive technology, you can follow the story of 78 million people and 10 million journeys, through the themes of migration, influence, motivation and connection.

This is an epic way to learn about great Irish influencers, from authors to scientists, and business people to sports men and women. Don’t miss getting your passport stamped throughout the tour and sending it as a virtual postcard.

Open all summer.


Laya Healthcare City Spectacular, Dublin & Cork

The Layla Healthcare City Spectacular is back and this year is going to be even bigger, better and more spectacular than ever as it takes to Dublin’s Merrion Square & Cork’s Fitzgerald Park, this July.

Featuring some of the best street theatre performers around, and with a host of exciting events, fantastic exhibitions and absorbing interactive workshops, there will be plenty to entertain the whole family.

Dublin: July 12th – 14th 2019;    Cork: July 20th – 21st 2019


Get lost in an amazing maze!

This amazing 2000 metre beech hedge maze is a fascinating feature at Russborough House in Blessington, Co Wicklow.  A statue of Cupid stands proudly on a column at the centre of the maze to help you find your way. Very popular with children, the maze is open every day of the week March-November.


Playstival Fest

Now in its second year, Playstival celebrates play, fun and imagination. It takes place at Airfield Estate, Ireland’s largest urban farm. Families can enjoy a two day 100% interactive and ‘screen free’ summer festival with themed ‘play universes’ and activities for children to immerse themselves in.

This hands-on festival is not to be missed and will fuel the imagination as everyone prepares to head back to school.

10th – 11th August 2019 at Airfield Estate, Dundrum, Dublin.


Bray Air Display 2019

Head to Bray this summer and catch some of the best display teams and vintage aircraft in the world as they showcase their incredible aerobatic skills in Bray Air Display. This is a fantastic free weekend for the whole family to enjoy!

There are 2-days of action and entertainment in the air and on the ground.

Saturday, July 27th & Sunday, July 28th, 2019


Croke Park Stadium Tour

Ranked as one of the best things to do in Dublin, some of the highlights of the tour include taking a seat in the VIP area, getting a birds-eye view from the media centre, sneaking a peek inside the dressing rooms, and of course, walking in the footsteps of gaelic games legends as you go pitchside through the players’ tunnel!

Open all summer.


Aillwee Caves

Located in the heart of the Burren In County Clare. Forty minutes from both Galway and Shannon. Perched high on its Burren terraced mountainside with what has to be one of the most spectacular views of Galway Bay. It is a must for all who find themselves in the area.

The tour consists of a 30-minute stroll through the beautiful caverns – over bridged chasms, under weird formations and alongside the thunderous waterfall which sometimes gently sprays the unsuspecting visitor! Marvel at the frozen waterfall and explore the now extinct brown bears' bones (ursos arctos).

The guides will bring you back to the outside world where you can browse and shop in a distinctly different gift shop which is housed in the award-winning complex that guards the entrance to the Burren underground.

Open all summer.
