RETURNING FOR ITS second year later this summer, Playstival is a two-day festival of play and music for young kids – and their parents. 

The jampacked festival, which takes place August 10 – 11 in Airfield Estate, features a live music stage, a world street food market and a science and discovery hub.

There’s also a kids’ construction site, craft village and vintage funfair, plus multiple more activities and events. The festival is suited to the entire family from toddlers upwards, with plenty for parents to enjoy too. 

Fancy heading along? We’ve two family passes (each family pass covers two adults and two children) to give away worth €60. And under 2s go free!
