Winter Funderland – WIN Family Passes

Funderland at the RDS has been part of Christmas in Dublin for over 40 years. Much like in our house – it’s been said that Funderland is an annual appointment for thousands of families!.

The event is essentially a large fairground themed day out with attractions, carousels, ice skating, food stalls and Christmas market stalls across almost 3 acres inside the RDS Simmonscourt Pavilion, with many more attractions located outdoors.

This year’s 2017 Funderland event is part of the Winter Funderland, offering the best thrill rides and family fairground attractions, including some direct from Germany. 

Winter Funderand includes Ireland’s only OUTDOOR ice skating rink, offering an unrivalled ice skating experience. Covering an area of 1000 Sq. metres, iSkate-on-Ice was introduced to the RDS in 2012 with huge success. 

Skating sessions are generally scheduled hourly, on the hour from 10am prior to Christmas and from 11am post Christmas but please check the event web site for availability as there is a maximum capacity permitted on the rink during each skating session. Groups in particular should contact iSkate by telephone (01) 6852439 to ensure they can be accommodated together on the rink.

For Junior skaters, iSkate provides a kiddie rink for children from age 3 upwards with its balancing aids and double-bladed skates. Ice Skates are included in the price and you are welcome to bring your own skates if you prefer.

The Ice Rink can operate in almost all weather conditions. The Rink at Winter Funderland is outdoor and skating sessions may be subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. In the unlikely event that the Duty Manager deems it necessary to close the ice rink we can offer either a refund or an alternative session for skating – subject to availability.

Please also bring suitable outdoor clothing.
