Paddys and Easter Activities ☘🐣


With mid term for some just around the corner and Paddy’s Day upon us I have brought together some activities that have caught my eye coming up over the next few weeks…

Paddy’s Day

We are meeting friends down in Greystones for a smaller family focused parade but there is lots on across the city with the main event in the city centre kicking off at 12 noon. 

In Blackrock there is a fun even my happening with details below.


If you fancy tying in a bit of shopping, Dundrum have some nice kids event on throughout the day.

14:00-17:00: Make & Do, Help the Leprechaun Reach his Pot of Gold!

14:00-17:00: Face Painting, Shamrocks, Rainbows and Celtic Designs!

14:15-15:00 Interactive Story Telling with Abracadabra! #1

If you are going to stay in for the day these crafts could be some fun.

Easter Activities 🐣

A few fun ideas below, some of which are on our list.

To be fair Dundrum has come up with a really nice schedule of events over the Easter break, here is an example.


14:00-17:00 Photo Op, Easter Themed Peep-Through Photo Op for Shoppers

14:00-17:00 – Face Painting, Bunnies, Eggs and Chicks!

14:00-17:00 Make and Do

Easter Crafts for Kids!

14:30-15:15 Junior Einstein’s Interactive Science Show #1

15:45-16:30 Junior Einstein’s Interactive Science Show #2
Next up and one we are attending is Cadbury’s Easter Hunt for Banardos. All proceeds go to this worthy charity and for 20 euro for a family of 4 I think it’s a pretty good deal. We went last year and Josh was probably a bit young but this year we are going with friends and I’m sure lots of fun will be had!

Another fun event happening on Easter Sunday which is conveniently near to us and free too is The Mad Hatter Tea Party in Deerpark.

Here we are last year:


Airfield always come up trumps and there are a few activites we have pencilled on the list-the Peter Rabbit storytelling sounds super cute.
Finally if the weather is bad there is always the library to pick up some Easter books, some Easter baking and themed DVDs at home.
Easter egg painting would be fun, we picked up ours at Dealz but you could do it yourself. 


Another recent addition to our activity list was the cinema and with King Fu Panda and Zootopia/Zootropolis both look fun!

So whatever you do hopefully that has given you a few ideas and you have a lovely family filled Easter break!
