The kids are off school and it's great to have some quality time.

The problem is trying to find things to do for the entire family to make the most of it.

We've had a good look to find some cool events happening in and around Dublin so you don't have to.

You can start planning your week by having a look at these:

1. Cool Planet Easter Event

This Easter at Cool Planet, the hunt for renewable energy is on with this really cool event.

Kids will love this Easter workshop where their challenge is to design & make their very own solar-powered Bunny-Bot.

This event takes place in Powerscourt House, Enniskerry running from Monday, April 15 to April 29.

2. Dublinia

There are loads fo events taking place in Dublinia over the next two weeks.

Viking Weaponry, The Big Dig, and Dress Like A Viking to name a few.

Check out the full listing here.

3. Easter Egg Hunts

These hunts are always great days out and there are loads on this weekend.

Here are a few to look out for:

4. Wooly Wards Farm

Easter is an amazing time of year for farms as it is the season for mums welcoming new baby animals.

This means lambs, chicks, and piglets are all being born right now, so go to the Easter events to see them - they're taking place over the entire Easter weekend.

5. Malahide Castle Easter Event

Easter is always a special time at Malahide Castle.

For one day only, you can see the Mad Hatter's tea party and meet Wonderland's colourful characters including the White Rabbit, Humpty Dumpty, the Queen of Hearts and Alice herself.

Complete the Easter hunt and earn treats along the way.

6. Easter Craft Workshop

Taking place at Epic, at this workshop inspired by Irish storytelling culture and the Easter tradition of displaying colourful eggs around the house, you'll create your very own Púca and friends egg-themed characters for you to take home.

7. Easter At Croke Park

The unmissable Easter ‘eggs’perience includes a guided tour of the famous stadium, a fun Easter egg hunt, and a visit to the GAA Museum.

Running April 18 to 22.

8. Easter At The Zoo

No better place to spend Easter than at the Zoo.

Discover more about egg laying birds, meet the New Zealand giant rabbits, and enjoy arts and crafts.

Take part in the annual Easter Treasure Trail, which will keep visitors of all ages entertained as clues will be hidden all around the Zoo.

⭐Baby Gorilla Alert⭐⁣ ⁣ Dublin Zoo is pleased to announce the birth of a baby western lowland gorilla, born to first-time mother Kafi and father Bangui!⁣ ⁣ On 1st April, after a gestation period of around 8-and-a-half months, Kafi gave birth to the healthy infant weighing approximately 2-2.5kg. To date, keepers at Dublin Zoo have been unable to determine the gender of the infant as Kafi has been keeping the baby close to her chest since the birth. The newborn is the first offspring of Bangui since his arrival at Dublin Zoo last year⁣ ⁣ #dublin #dublinzoo #gorilla #babygorilla #westernlowlandgorilla #silverback #conservation #sierraleone #discoverdublin #failteireland #ireland
