The familiar light up Christmas baubles will dot the town for the perfect selfie opportunity along with lighting of iconic buildings & tree lined streets.

You can join in the charity carol singing on the new Myrtle Square beside Bloomfields Shopping Centre, though the Christmas period & let the kids try out its new twisty slide. 

Watch out for the Traditional Christmas Family Funfair at the Harbour Plaza and Christmas shop windows decorated around the town to celebrate this magical time of year. 

The ever popular ice rink runs up until the 24th Jan 2023 in Dun Laoghaire Harbour – U18’s €17.50 & adults €20.50.  Penguin skate aids are available for hire for kids 3 years & up.
