It's not Christmas until you've stuffed your face with churros at a local market.

Packed with cute handmade decorations and mouth-watering food, there are plenty of Christmas markets dotted around the country that you can pop in for your fix while you're doing the shopping.

Here are the best markets around Ireland this month:

Galway Continental Christmas Market

Nestled in the middle of Galway's Eyre Square, you'll find about 50 wooden chalets packed with a wide array of food, drink and crafts from every corner of the world. This year, you can also take a spin on one of their many amusement rides including the 32 metre high Big Wheel, the Helter Skelter and the traditional Carousel.

Dublin Flea Market

This little market in Dublin's Docklands is a gem. It's full of the best up and coming Irish-based creators, start-ups and small businesses with a mix of artists, designers and craftspeople. You could find anything here from a cool retro t-shirt to a luxurious face mask - there really is something for everyone.

Limerick Milk Market

The Milk Market in Limerick is one of the longest-running in the country and at Christmas, they pull out all the stops. Here you'll find present ideas galore such as mouth-watering homemade jams, vintage accessories and cheese stalls. Even the fussiest present-receiver will be left grinning.

St George's Market, Belfast

The bustling St George's Market is jam-packed with vibrant fresh produce, dainty handmade jewellery, handmade scented candles and much, much more. It runs right up until Christmas Eve which is perfect if you tend to be a last-minute shopper.
