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

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.

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!
