Looking for something to do this week in the lead up to Christmas?

There's lots of events happening in Dublin that'll be sure to put you in the festive spirit.


Wonderlights at Malahide Castle honestly looks magical!

This year’s ‘The Night Sky’ sensory lightshow is bursting with breathtaking visuals of icy Arctic Forests, astonishing Northern Lights, and mesmerizing Meteor Showers.

There's also a fabulous Winter Village with everything from Griolladh's mouth-watering grilled cheese sambos to something sweet from Sprinkles Desserts or The Rolling Donut.

2. Christmas At The Castle

Expect a range of food and drink providers, evening music performances and the very best of Irish design and craftsmanship for sale.

While this free ticketed event is completely booked out online, you could still be admitted at the door if there are no shows.

However, it's all at the discretion of security who will be monitoring numbers. 🎄❄️ Christmas Market at Dublin Castle ❄️🏰 #dublincastlechristmasmarkets #christmas #market #dublin #foryou #food #craft #stalls #night #dublincastle #share #fyp ♬ Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree - Brenda Lee
