Your hands will be full when travelling with children so before you start out on your journey, make sure you carry all your travel documents in one easily reached place, make sure your hand baggage meets security requirements before you leave home and work out whether you need to carry buggies to the aircraft or pack them in your checked-in baggage. Remember to keep everything that your baby needs on the flight in your carry-on luggage, ensuring that it is always to hand, bearing in mind the EU Aviation Security Regulations.

DAA Retail Development has worked closely with the Food & Beverage (F&B) management team to rejuvenate the landside Mezzanine area of Terminal 1.
The objective was to provide an environment that is modern and engaging and provides Dublin Airport customers with a range of F&B options, public seating, a dedicated children’s play area and an exhibition space.
The children’s play area was a concept proposed to McDonalds who designed the space as an extension of their existing offering allowing parents the space to relax and eat while their children play within a safe and controlled environment. The joint objective is to improve the Dublin Airport customers' experience within Terminal 1.
The childrens play area is located on the Mezzanine level of Terminal 1 beside Mc Donalds and includes a gym play area with colourfully designed seating and tables to interest and excite young and old.
Children’s menus are available at the following restaurants:
