Day one on a Dublin family vacation: kids are grouchy and it's pouring down with rain. What do you do? First of all, feed them up with a good Irish breakfast while brainstorming a few family vacation ideas. Then head out from your hotel for a morning of fun and excitement. Hopefully, you've chosen a hotel close to St. Stephen's Green in the middle of the city. This should keep everyone happy, because it is centrally located, close to great shopping and attractions and won't require a lot of travel time and energy to get to where you want to go. What follows is a list of suggested things to do in Dublin with kids.
