Jellyfish in Dublin - a midsummers night guide

become a lifesaver / lifeguard  click here or email us here or call us on 0861595422  - training for ages 8-11, 12-16, 16-18 and 18+

We get a good variety of jellyfish on view on the beaches, our guide to types of jellyfish in Ireland is detailed, but if you want to teach the kids the basics about Jellyfish in Dublin it is really quite simple......

Beware of Jellyfish B.O.B.
Look out for jellyfish with all of your might,
If they’re Purple or White – you should be all right.
But if bob is about, that’s Black, Orange or Blue,
you've got to keep clear or they might just sting you.

Parents Jellyfish Quick Guide
- BOB bad - blue orange black.
- Jellyfish have a shiny side and a business side so
- always be aware that if you see  Black, Orange or Blue their singing tentacles can extend for a massive distance (especially orange)

If you see an unusual Jellyfish why not send us a picture and we’ll publish it!
try  include something so we can gauge size!
