Dublin At Christmas brings festive Christmas magic to Dublin’s City Centre
We’ve teamed up with Dublin City Council and the city’s transport providers to create a fantastic programme of festive events for #DublinAtChristmas! This website is a one-stop-shop for information on all the festivities taking place across Dublin City Centre including information on shopping, socialising, family friendly events, special offers and much more.
Be amazed at the magical moment when the #DublinatChristmas lights get switched-on, enjoy free open air concerts, take part in the Christmas jumper world record breaking ‘Geansaí Nollag’ challenge, walk under the festive lights as they spectacularly illuminate the streets of Dublin.
Christmas doesn’t officially begin until the festive lights are switched on across Dublin and seasonal shoppers can celebrate the start of Christmas at the lighting ceremonies taking place from Sunday 13 November until Sunday 27 November across four of Dublin’s iconic city centre locations.
