Is it teething time for your little one?


A new festival for kids and parents is coming this summer, and it sounds amazing.


Playstival, a two-day summer festival, will celebrate play, imagination, and fun with a range of hands-on, fun and imaginative games and themed play universes.


Play is an integral and important part of children’s lives and the focus of Playstival is to ‘go back to basics’ and experience a more innocent approach to games and play - no fancy technology or screens to be found!



Playstival is both interactive and active; kids don’t just sit and watch, they PLAY! 

Taking place in Airfield Estate, Dundrum, Playstival showcases eight themed ‘play universes’ for children to immerse themselves in, use their imaginations to create ideas, roles and characters, and most importantly have lots of fun. 


The team behind Ireland’s largest summer festival Laya Healthcare’s City Spectacular have partnered with living happy and healthy advocates The Happy Pear to create this unique festival that celebrates play, fun and imagination.


From a construction site for kids to the Wild Wild West, the wonderfully themed play universes offer an unforgettable day of pure fun for families set in the heart of Dublin.


Furthermore, delicious and nourishing Happy Pear food will be on offer throughout the weekend – from healthy wraps and salads, to hot dishes, as well as Happy Pear smoothies, hand-roasted coffees, and a selection of healthier cakes and treats. 



When and where?

Playstival with the Happy Pear will take place on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th August in Airfield Estate, Overend Avenue, Dundrum, Dublin 14. 

Each Playstival session lasts for 4 hours and runs between 9am - 1pm and 2pm - 6pm.
