Dublin Viking Adventure


Dublin Viking Adventure

Essex St W, off Fishamble St.,, Dublin

Dublin’s history is colored with Viking invasions, and many of the city’s churches and attractions highlight Viking pillaging in their storied histories. At this interactive Viking experience, kids can join Norse guides on a journey to Viking Dublin, including the town of Dyflin. Viking artifacts excavated from the site are on display, as well.

For even more Viking fun, join Viking Splash Tours, departing from Stephens Green near Grafton Street in Dublin City. Don a Viking helmet for a 1.5-hour land/water tour that takes you around the heart of Dublin and the River Liffey, passing the city’s top attractions. It’s a great introductory tour of the city when the family is jetlagged and hasn’t gotten their bearings. Sit back and let the guide fill you in, and make note of the places you’d like to return to on foot.
