The Dublin Irish Festival offers a wide variety of activities for families. In addition to the Wendy’s Wee Folk Area and the Pot O’ Gold Playland, families can explore the interactive cultural villages and visit the Celtic Canines.

Pot O' Gold Playland

Your child’s dream come true! The playland features more than 20 inflatable rides and activities on two acres in the South end of the Festival. Restrooms and tented seating areas with tables are conveniently located within the playland.

The playland is recommended for children ages 2 – 12. Select rides have height and weight requirements which are posted at the entrance to the ride. Wee folk too small to ride can take advantage of a smaller FREE play area with activities safe for toddlers.

The City of Dublin is committed to providing play opportunities for children of all abilities. To provide the best overall experience for your child please talk with the SuperGames Staff at the Pot O’ Gold Wristband tent.

$10 wristbands provide unlimited rides on the same day purchased.

Wendy’s Wee Folk Crafts

Stop by the Wendy’s Wee Folk Area to create free Irish-inspired crafts. Whether your child is two years old or ten, there are crafts for all ages to enjoy. The Wendy’s Wee Folk Area is located in the East Zone near the permanent playground. In addition to crafts, our youngest of guests can enjoy family activities, Irish music, stories and more.

Identi-Kid Program

In an effort to help quickly relocate separated parents and their small children, the Dublin Division of Police provide IDENTI-KID wristbands. Caregivers may stop by one of the conveniently located tents and obtain a free wristband that displays the child’s name, age and parent’s phone number. Every year, family members are accidentally separated but if a child is wearing an IDENTI-KID wristband, their reunion can be facilitated more rapidly.

These tents are proudly staffed by volunteers from the Dublin Police Community Service Officer Program and members of the Dublin Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association.

Kids Highland Games

Participate in Highland Heavyweight activities on the Sports Field, starting at noon on Saturday. Attendees are able to toss a caber and throw a braemar stone just like the adult athletes!
