It can be incredibly hard to find a summer festival that's suitable for both yourself and your kids to attend. Many music events don't cater for little ears, but Beatyard are doing things differently.
Beatyard takes place on August 3 and 4 this summer in Dun Laoghaire, with a stellar musical line-up, delicious food stalls, boat parties, pop-up fashion shops as well as games and entertainment for kids.
Families are more than welcome to the festival, with tonnes of brilliant kids activities taking place throughout both days at Kidsyard.
