Christmas officially kicks off at St. Stephen’s Green this Thursday 13th November with the opening of the first ever traditional Christmas Market in the city centre. More than 60 traditional wooden chalets will line the exterior of St. Stephen’s Green Park, all the way along to Merrion Row, selling a gorgeous selection of unique, handmade Irish gifts. Peruse the selection of handcrafted woodcrafts and accessories and treat yourself to the delicious festive food – crepes, hot chocolate and Gluhwein all round! Best of all, the market is totally free to the public and will open every day from Midday to 8pm.
If you’re planning on having a look on Thursday, make sure you’re in the area for 5pm when the Christmas lights on Grafton Street and the surrounding creative quarter will be lit for the first time this year!
