Looking for something to do in Dublin over the festive period? The Dun Laoghaire Christmas Festival is in full swing.
Hosted by Dún Laoghaire- Rathdown County Council, the event features the largest ever display of Christmas lights in Dún Laoghaire, the iconic Ferris Wheel from the movie ‘Grease’, a Vintage Funfair, Santa’s Post Box and the very popular Christmas market.
There are a number of vendors selling hand-made gifts, decorations, jewellery and treats every weekend until December 23rd on the metals and opposite dlr LexIcon from 12.30pm to 7pm on Fridays and 11am to 7pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
Gourmet sausages, crepes, baked goods, Hungarian Beef Goulash Soup and Lángos, German Gluhwein and steaming hot chocolate are all available at the market.
Meanwhile, Santa's Postbox is located at the Christmas Tree near the dlr LexIcon Garden and is open to receive letters right up to Sunday December 16th. Two of Santa’s North Pole Post elves, Jingle Snickerdoodle and Twinkle McSprinkles, have been commissioned to pick up letters each Sunday at 5pm. The letters will be whizzed off to the North Pole via Elf Airlines direct to Santa who will reply to each letter.
