We all know how hard it can be to entertain children during the summer holidays but we sometimes underestimate just how hard it is to entertain teenagers! With many teens, it’s difficult to drag them kicking and screaming outdoors and away from their phones and video games. Even the most restless and demanding teens will enjoy these activities:
Whether you like science or not, the Science Gallery has some of the most fascinating exhibitions of all of the museums in Dublin. This is not your typical walk around and don’t touch type of place, they encourage interaction, creativity and education above all else. Their themes range from human nature and biology to chemistry, the universe and everything in between. Its free to enter too, which is a great bonus.
If you have a teen that likes to keep active and is always on the move, visit Awesome Walls Climbing Centre, just 20 minutes’ drive from the hotel. Awesome Walls is one of Europe’s largest indoor climbing areas. They have 250 different climbing routes available, suitable for everyone from complete beginners or experienced climbers. Their friendly staff are always on hand for tutorials and safety is their number one priority at all times.
Croke Park has been the centre of national sports in Ireland for over a hundred years now. If your teen is sports mad, it will be a real treat to visit the stadium, walk on the grass of their heroes and discover more about the stadium and the sports that are played here. They will get the chance to visit the player's changing rooms, enjoy a birds-eye view from the media area and the enthusiastic tour guides will answer as many questions as they can.
If you have a teenage girl (or boy for that matter!) that likes to take care of themselves and their personal appearance, treat them to a spa day in the well-known Creative Spa in Ballymount. They offer a huge variety of treatments suitable for teens including facials, manicures and pedicures. They also offer great package deals if you have a birthday or celebration.
If your teen loves being in the water, take them to the National Aquatic Centre for a day of swimming, sliding and splashing. They have a huge host of activities including slides, wave pools, the amazing flow-rider and exciting master blaster. You could spend a whole day here trying to get around to all of the cool attractions and rides. Great fun for kids, teens and the whole family.
