about babytalk


Babytalk is a festival for babies and their families, expectant parents and anyone thinking of starting or adding to their family.

You don’t need a bump to come to babytalk – everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy our comfortable, family-friendly festival weekend and supportive inclusive atmosphere. The festival is taking place on the 22nd and 23rd of February 2014 from 10am to 5pm daily in O’Reilly Hall, UCD, Dublin. More information on location and directions.

Our hand-picked exhibitors will be showcasing their clever products and services – the perfect chance to browse, ask questions and maybe nab a bargain!

Our series of short talks from respected expert speakers provide introductions to a wide range of topics from trying to conceive, pregnancy well-being, infant nutrition, baby’s first year and more.

All the details for a fun stress-free day out have been considered with free car parking, buggy parking, baby changing areas, lots of comfy spots to feed either out and about or in our quiet feeding area and our gorgeous Easy Parenting café area where you can refuel and relax.

We have fun for all the family with face-painting and a children’s play area plus our exciting entertainment programme of music, stand-up comedy and children’s entertainers. You’ll find lots to do with your baby, wobbler or toddler and older children are very welcome too.

Have a pregnancy or parenting query? Looking for tips on feeding your baby or want to know more about your rights? Our information station will be staffed by representatives from family support agencies who can answer questions and point you in the right direction whether you need information, support or both.

Book-lovers of all ages will enjoy our dedicated reading and storytelling area, with author appearances, storytelling and readings from some of our favourite books.
