With over 80 stores, 20 restaurants and a state-of-the-art cinema, Liffey Valley is the ultimate shopping destination this Christmas. 

One of Ireland’s largest shopping and leisure destinations, Liffey Valley will host an array of festive activities for the whole family to enjoy, including the inaugural Liffey Valley Christmas market as well as a free Santa Experience. 

Liffey Valley’s Western Plaza has been transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland where local vendors are showcasing a range of gifting ideas, selling mouth-watering festive treats and unique decorative crafts. 

Curated in support of local and independent businesses, indulgent baked creations from The Drunken Cookie and stocking fillers for your favourite furry pal from popular Irish pet accessory brand Pawfect by Jake, are just some of the stalls shoppers can expect to enjoy at this special Christmas experience.  

Supported by Sing Ireland, Santa Claus will be arriving in the Centre at 10am on Saturday, December 3 and Little shoppers will have their picture taken with Santa, before being invited to express post their letter to the North Pole for the chance to win a €500 voucher for the Centre.
