Here’s a few suggestions to get you in the christmas spirit:

Enjoy a mulled wine at the Docklands Christmas Markets
George’s Dock, IFSC, Dublin 1
The Docklands Christmas Festival started on Friday 07 Dec and runs until 23 Dec. The Festival is in its 8th year with stalls offering food and mulled wine, hot chocolate, roasted chestnuts as well as some crafts. This year it is sponsored by Airtricity and seems smaller than previous years but is still worth a visit. There is a small carousel and some “Victorian fairground attractions” as well as a stage for live music. The market is open until 8pm on weekdays and until 10pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Admission is free. For more information visit their website
