Free Events

Hopefully this list of free events in Ireland for families and kids will grow in these recessionary times and we will be keeping an eye out for the best of them. If you are aware of other free events or things to do in your area that are free, please let us know and we will include them here.

In the meantime, the list of ‘places’ in Ireland that are Free to Visit are a lot longer and well worth a try for that family day out.
