It’s time to get out and capture the spirit of the season as everyone around has a smile on their face and a kind word to say! That special once-a-year atmosphere will enliven even the Scroogiest of souls and seems to bring the world together.


The capital will be leading the festivities as always with a huge number of events and activities taking place across the city in the run up to Christmas. We’ll have a look at a few of them here so you know what to take in to make the most of any mini-break or shopping trip to Dublin in the coming weeks.

For all the presents and assorted trinkets and stocking fillers, Dublin is the only place to go to sate your Christmas shopping desires. There’s nothing quite like a big day out and the crowds around the city to get you into the mood. You can check out some of the best Christmas markets and shopping experiences, like a Christmas version of the flea market at the Point Village or the special Christmas market at the chq building in our last blog right here!


It’s not only a shopaholics paradise in Dublin this Christmas though with fun for all ages guaranteed at any one of the fantastic pantos and shows happening around the city’s theatres, not to mention special Christmas events like the Naughty or Nice series of Christmas films at the Lighthouse Cinema. That’s on top of the Santa’s grottos, toy shops bulging to the rafters (always a kids favourite!) and a whirlwind of excitement followed by a nice Christmas meal together.

With the kids entertained, the presents bought and bellies full the first thought is to put the feet up and relax at home.
