The perfect place to keep the whole family happy

Family and kids

Family & Kids Activities

We love seeing families spending time together and kids growing up in our clubs. It’s only natural to want your family to be healthy and active, so we’ve developed not just kid’s activities but also family activities. Our social calendar is always full of family friendly events and with three kid’s activity rooms and a crèche we always have something going on to keep them entertained.

Why not grab a cappuccino whilst the kids are on the playframe? Or play a game of kid’s v adult’s tennis or even a splash in the pool, and after all of that, enjoy a nice family dinner together in our DLicious cafebar. We even do birthday parties and events. We have something for the whole family, all under one roof.

Set them free

As our little ones grow older, keeping them fit and healthy can be a real challenge, so we’ve listened to our members and have made it easier for children to stay active and get more from their David Lloyd Club.

Take the plunge

Giving kids the freedom to swim independently in a safe environment can really boost their confidence and help improve their skills. We’ve made our pools more accessible so children aged 10-12 years old can now swim independently during family swim times. All they need to do is complete a shark test – performing some supervised swim drills in the water - and they’re all set.

Gym time

There’s a whole new world of exercises and equipment to explore, which we know can appear a little daunting, so we’ve made our gym more accessible from a younger age. Children aged 10-12 years can now use the gym when supervised by a parent or the gym team. All they need to do is complete a ‘Start Up’ gym induction with our gym team and hit the gym floor. Check out your local club for more details.

DL Kids playframe


Our DLicious cafebar has space for everyone, with a kids play frame, quiet Adult Only lounge and Family area. It’s a great place for catching up with friends over a coffee or lunch, or getting on with some work whilst using our Free Wi-Fi.

If you’re looking for something to eat whether it’s, breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack on the go, our DLicious menu will have something for you. With high quality, fresh ingredients, the menu has a balanced choice of meals and snacks that are ideal for a healthy active lifestyle. Don’t worry though, it’s not all salads, we have power food that is perfect after you’ve been working out, such as our High Protein Plate, the classics like jacket potato and fish & chips, a great choice of flatbreads, and much more. Pop into out DLicious cafebar today to find your favourite.

Family fun & Games

Families love spending time at David Lloyd Dublin Riverview as there’s always plenty of choice for everyone. Spend the day going swimming, playing tennis, or grab a latte in our DLicious cafebar whilst the kids climb around the playframe or play on our free iPads. At the end of the day we love seeing families enjoying a meal together in our DLicious cafebar.

Our club also has a busy social events calendar, whether its kid’s entertainers, social evenings or coffee mornings, there is never a dull moment.

DL Kids

If you want your kids to stay active and have plenty of fun at the same time, just sign them up to our DL Kids programme. We know it can be difficult organising free time for you to get to the gym or attend a class, so we have deliberately timed DL Kids sessions to match up with our group exercise classes. This way you can enjoy the club whilst the kids play a sport, get stuck into some arts and crafts or play games. Our DL Kids programme is a great way to make new friends, all whilst learning new skills and having fun.

Holiday Club

Our jam-packed holiday clubs give kids aged 5-13 an exciting mixture of swimming and tennis, team games and activities, arts and crafts - and a lot of fun. Visit our Holiday Club page for more information.

DL Kids - tennis

All Stars

We have great All Star programmes that allow your kids to learn new skills in a fun environment. Whether you want to try tennis or swimming, our fantastic coaches will start with the basics and gradually teach ways to improve and progress in their sport. We love seeing each child enjoy themselves and progress in each lesson. The only downside, is that they could soon be better than you!

DL Kids teens

Toddlers to teens

Whatever their age, we’ve got lots of ways to keep your kids busy. Our fully qualified crèche staff really enjoy caring for the smallest of our members and helping them play and learn, whilst you pop to the gym, grab a coffee or take a dip in the pool.

As well as our DL Kids, Holiday Active and All Stars programmes, we also run our Fitness Into Teens programme. If you’re between 11 and 17 we’ve got a whole range of things to get involved with, whether it’s Zumba® or Boxercise or enjoying a session in the gym or the pool, they’re a great way to get fit, have fun with friends or relax by yourself.

They're not the only occasions we celebrate, we also love organising kid’s parties! If you want to make your child feel extra-special, look no further. We have everything you need for the perfect party – amazing themes, tasty party food, party bags, invitations and not forgetting lots of fun and games.
