We're getting the train into Connolly station on Monday & I reckon we'll have about 4 hours before its time to leave again, therefore what would people recommend we do as we have 3 boys (ages 9, 7 & 5)?

I'd like to give them a flavour of the city & also want them to have fun & enjoy themselves.

The Viking Tour is good fun. You go around the city on a boat with wheels and get to shout a lot.

The Leprechaun museum near the Jervis shopping centre. The tour takes an hour

Thanks both - not heard of either of those so will have a look.

With three young kids I'd definitely go for the Viking Splash Tour. I've never known a kid not to love it. They get to wear a Viking hat and shout at passing pedestrians.

Yes,The Viking Splash Tour is great fun.

Viking tour is great mine loved it. However if the weather was good I'd do the zoo. All ages love it and 4 hours is loads. A Taxi to the zoo would be minimal.

Thanks all - think we'll definitely do the Viking tour but probably not the zoo as my DSs have been there before (relatives took them) & maybe the Leprechaun museum if we have time. Thanks!

Thank you - we did the shops (including an ace comic store by Hapenny Bridge); couple of drinks in Temple Bar & the Viking Splash Tour.

It was also phenomenal for playing Pokemon Go grin

My DSs had a great day - I'd never heard of the Viking tour before, so thanks for the recommendation!
