Family & kids’ events over Christmas & New Year festival

Fish and horses, lions and dragons, swords and stars and hidden miniature bicycles.  Temple Bar is packed with an extraordinary, often overlooked  world of decorative detail. The best way to explore  and discover it is to search the objects out yourself, armed with just a list of clues and a map.  Oh yes, That’s right: a Treasure Hunt!

Our first-ever  Dublin Decoded Temple Bar Treasure Hunt for adults was Tuesday November 1st and it went down a storm.  Our first kids’ version of the treasure hunt ran on Sunday 20th (for a private trial group of family and friends).   But these were just the trial runs.  The good news is that over the Christmas & New Year festival period. we are running both grown ups, and kids versions,  four times times in total, once each at 11.30AM (for kids) and again 2.30 (for grown ups) on both Friday 30th December and on Saturday 31st December (2016)  We hope you’ll find the time to join us.

But the offer gets even better, because these events have been commissioned by and subsidized by the wonderful Dublin New Years Festival, an annual celebration of culture, history and music in Ireland capital at the turning of the year. Accordingly, tickets are just a €6 for grown ups and only €3 for children,  an unbeatable offer, strictly for these 4 special dates only.
