Any particular recommendations? DH can't wait to go! But he sometimes forgets we're also taking the dc! (8, 6, 3!).

Have heard that we would enjoy Bewleys ! for cakes, but what about the 'cultural' stuff?

We have 2 full days, and are staying v centrally.

Book of Kells and the Guinness Brewery!

Kells yes - but how to do a brewery properly with 3 dc?!

maybe go to Irelands parent meeting site -

You could get some advice there.

You could do the double decker bus and hit all the tourist attractions including Kilmainham Jail, Trinity College, and the brewery. Guinness can def be done with young children though it could get a bit long.

Must see in Dublin with children.
Viking splash tour a vehicle which goes on land and water, you can wear viking hats and roar at passing pedestrians. all my uk nieces and nephews loved it.
also Dublin zoo is good for a day out, its in the phoenix park which has a good playground.

A train ride to Dun Laoghaire to walk on pier, go for a paddle/swim and icecream in Teddies

A good site to ask for more suggestions is
