Visit Egg-citing Places on Luas!

19 April 2017

Looking for fun filled activities for the kids this Easter school break? Take Luas to lots of egg-citing places on both the Red and Green Lines and make the most of the precious time with your kids over the school holidays. There’s plenty for families and children of all ages to see and do in Dublin whatever the weather. The city has an abundance of attractions close to Luas including free parks and playgrounds and more!

If your little ones are history buffs, take them to the National History Museum*, The Little Museum of Dublin on the Luas Green Line or Dublinia Medieval Heritage Centre, Museum of Decorative Arts & History**, Drimnagh Castle or Kilmainham Gaol on the Luas Red Line. The little history buffs will be spoilt with what’s on offer and the whole family will have a fascinating day out.

A short walk from Bluebell Luas stop is the stunning Drimnagh Castle. A hidden gem in South Dublin! The beautifully restored Kilmainham Gaol provides visitors a fascinating glimpse of life in Ireland during its struggle for independence.  Both Drimnagh Castle and Kilmainham Gaol are located on the Luas Red Line.

For those looking for something more active, Jump Zone and Imaginosity are just a short walk from Stillorgan Luas Stop and Leisureplex is only a 10 minute walk from Tallaght Luas Stop. Both offer child orientated activities and are perfect for rainy days! For budding golfers there’s Rainforest Adventure Golf centre in Dundrum Town Centre.

After you’ve visited the National History Museum why not take a trip to Dublin Zoo or Airfield Estate and see the animals in real life? Or step on board the Jeanie Johnston  and take a tour both above and below deck of Dublin’s favourite ship. Dublin Zoo is accessible from Heuston Luas Stop, the closest Stop to Airfield Estate is Balally and the Jeanie Johnston is a short walk from George’s Dock Stop.

And finally, if your children are showing some artistic flair, a trip to the National Gallery* (St. Stephen’s Green), Giddy Pottery Studios, (Balally) The Ark (St. Stephen’s Green / Jervis), the Irish Museum of Modern Art (Heuston) or Rua Red (Tallaght) on the Red Line could inspire some creative spirit!
