Family Friendly Dublin

Roisín @chaosnharmony is mom of two and lives in the beautiful County

Roisín @chaosnharmony is mom of two and lives in the beautiful County of Dublin. She has very kindly shared some of their favourite places in Dublin. She created a fabulous video as well, so be sure to check it out on our Instagram page @thefamilyedit

Roisín’s Dublin Favourites include:

Dun Laoighre Rathdown CC

Killiney Hill – Killiney Hill is such a beautiful open space, right in Dublin City. The kids love running through the forest and the gorgeous tall trees. Great for the kids to run around, and fabulous for adults too to take in all the stunning views. 

Mugs Dalkey

Dalkey Village is just down the road, so after you’ve had a lovely long walk, you can grab a coffee at Mugs


Sandycove / The Forty Foot – This is a beautiful spot for a sea swim. It’s very close to Killiney Hill so could make a full day of it. The water is suitable for kids as well – they might just want wetsuits! Top tip for sea swimming for both kids and adults alike, don’t think about to too much and just launch yourself in! 


Kerb in Foxrock – Kerb in Foxrock has the best coconut shrimp wrap you will ever eat! When you travel across the city to get it for lunch, that’s a great sign!! And even better when the kids pick it as their food choice! [*Pictured here is another popular choice the buttermilk chicken kebab!]

That’s it – staycation to Dublin booked!!
