Attraction Information

The Ark creates original cultural programmes for children in a purpose built venue in the heart of Dublin.
They seek to achieve the highest standards of arts practice for children aged 2 to 12 through performances, exhibitions and workshops with leading Irish and international artists.
Most of their events are age specific, because children's interests and skills develop with age, and because children generally benefit more from participating in cultural activity with other children of their own age. They ask all visitors to respect the designated age range when booking. Events are not suitable for any children under the recommended age group.

Opening hours

Exhibitions, shows, workshops, & performances have varying starting times Booking is available year round with the booking office open Monday to Friday from 10 AM until 4.30 PM


Prices vary dependent on age group, performance, & time of year but single day activities are usually approximately €11
