So much going on in the city as we head towards Christmas, James Kavanagh has rounded up his top 5 picks! 

1) Dublin Flea Christmas Market, 7th - 10th @ Point Square 

The Dublin Flea Christmas Market is back!! We return to The Point Square this December and are once again supported by Dublin City Council as one of Dublin City’s official Christmas Markets. With a fourth day added this year we will run from Thursday 7th Dec to Sunday 10th December (Thur & Fri 1pm-8pm, Sat & Sun 11am-6pm). As the capital’s best loved, free-entry, indoor, Christmas market it will host a whopper collection of over 140 stalls selling a unique mix of festive gifts.

3) Gifted, The Contemporary Craft & Design Fair, 5th - 10th @ The RDS 

The craft & design industry in Ireland is a vibrant, creative and ever-changing environment and we look forward adapting, developing and improving just like our makers do at every turn. 'Gifted' is now 6-day event, and there is late night shopping from Tuesday to Friday so it will be easier than ever to get all of your Christmas shopping done in one place.

4) Bang Bang, 6th - 23rd @ Bewley's Cafe  

It’s 1980 and Christmas decorations have appeared in the Home for the Blind where Dublin’s most famous gunslinger, the legendary street character Bang Bang, has finally hung up his holster. But in his heart Bang Bang knows that will be his last Christmas and soon he must face the final shootout he has spent decades preparing for while roaming the streets of Dublin, which became Dodge City in his mind as he jumped down from open-backed buses to fight imaginary gun battles with bushwhackers, using his trusty, rusty key.
