From the 9th of December & running through to the 8th of January Dun Laoghaire town centre will be transformed for its 1st ever Christmas festival. Kicking off the celebrations on the 10th, Santa will arrive on his Harley Davidson just in time for the annual Fireworks Display on Harbour Plaza. At the Metals and on Marine Road gift hunters will be able to make a start on their Christmas wish-lists as they browse around the illuminated Christmas Market with its German styled wooden chalets. Vendors will be selling a variety of hand crafted traditional Christmas gifts, decorations, bags & jewellery. For food lovers, a wide range artisan food will be available including seasonal stews, gourmet crepes and bratwurst bbq’s. This is the perfect opportunity to indulge in some festive fun: try out the carousel (it’s not just for kids!), the climbing wall or the ice rink or take a load off and hop on the Christmas train around the village.
To top it all off, DART ticket holders will be entitled to a 10% discount on amusements and markets. Get your ice skates on!
