Intro Text 
We hope you are all very much enjoying the Christmas festival in Dún Laoghaire this year. If you haven’t yet visited, there’s lots to entertain you. We have an iconic Ferris wheel at Moran Park, beside dlr LexIcon, until 2 January. A wonder of modern engineering when it was built in 1955 and still a sight to behold, the 55ft wheel reportedly featured in the original Grease movie and provides spectacular views over the harbour. It is surrounded by a vintage carnival, North Pole Post Box and a charming Christmas market adding to the winter wonderland feel.



The Dún Laoghaire Christmas Market is a feast for the seasonal senses with carefully selected vendors selling authentic hand-made gifts and delicious treats every weekend until 23 December on the Metals and opposite dlr LexIcon from 11am to 7pm. Aromas of gourmet sausages, Hungarian beef goulash soup and lángos, German gluhwein, crepes and steaming hot chocolate fill the air as you wander through the Christmas Market, surrounded by hand-crafted gifts and decorations, jewellery, metal art, sculpture and a whole host of quality artisan gifts and treats that are made by hand with love.

Dún Laoghaire Town Centre has over 280 retail outlets and businesses so why not avoid city-centre crowds and stuffed out-of-town shopping centres and instead browse, shop, relax and soak up the festive spirit of our beautiful seaside town? Extra trading hours and exclusive in-store promotions all add to the festive cheer.

And don’t forget our dlr Christmas parking promotion – another very good reason to shop local this Christmas. For every hour of on-street parking purchased across the county, get one hour free! This promotion runs until 5 January 2019.
