Time for an adventure! FREE things to do with the kids this summer

School is out for summer and our kids are once again home with us 24/7. It’s great, really! We love being surrounded by our little ones, but let’s face it — the thoughts of having to keep them entertained every single day for the next eight weeks is slightly stressing us out right now.

That’s why we were only too delighted to hear about these wonderful, fun-filled attractions which are offering free entry to children under the age of 16-years.

EPIC Museum, voted Europe’s Leading Tourist Attraction 2019 and 2020 in the World Travel Awards, are offering free entry to children aged 16 and under, when accompanied by a paying adult throughout the months of July and August. 

With the kids’ summer holidays in full swing, why not make the most of them and plan a fun day out for the whole family in Dublin’s Docklands this summer.

EPIC offers a totally unique, state-of-the-art experience where you immerse yourself in what it truly means to be Irish. All while discovering how much the Irish mean to the world. Enjoy a  fun and interactive visit for kids, adults and grandparents alike. Whether children are exploring the 200 year old vaults, swiping through the interactive quizzes, dancing to Riverdance or listening to the whispering library, they’ll be entertained throughout. 

Visitors are guaranteed to leave with a better understanding of centuries of history, enormous pride in the Irish people who left their country to begin a new life, and a better understanding of the issues of immigrants the world over. 

That’s not all though — kids also go free on the Jeanie Johnston! Located just two minutes from EPIC, the Jeanie Johnston tells the story of the thousands of Irish people who fled the Famine and embarked on a voyage in the hope of a better life in North America. 

Admire the towering masts, hear tales of a brave captain and crew and learn all about Irish history along the way. Step on board and you will be transported back in time to an incredible journey across the sea.

This summer, unlock your family's imagination and fuel their curiosity with a FREE trip for the kids to these great attractions in the heart of Dublin’s Docklands. With plenty of wide-open space, from stunning modern architecture to historic buildings and an excellent selection of places for outdoor dining, Dublin’s Docklands has it all.

Book an unforgettable experience at epicchq.com and bring the kids for free this July and August.

EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum is open seven days a week from 10am-5pm. Pre-booking is advised. Walk-ins are welcome, and are admitted on a first-come, first-served basis in the next available time slot. The Jeanie Johnston is open Thursday to Sunday from 11am to 4 pm. Pre-booking is essential.
