The boutique style shops of the Powerscourt shopping centre and surrounding area come to life at Christmas, with charming, unusual and locally made gifts- and all just two minutes away. The Disney Store on Grafton Street is also a popular spot with young and old alike, especially when ticking off items on Santa lists- and if visits are timed correctly, families will be enchanted by the festive closing and opening ceremonies. Brown Thomas is another must, certainly around Christmas, with its festive shop open from September on the top floor: it’s worth a visit, even just for the spectacular annual window displays.
Just a short walk (or an even shorter bus ride) across the river brings guests to the lively Henry Street and O’Connell Street, whose streets are filled with a festive buzz from Moore Street Market all the way to Mary Street. Visitors to this area can make the most of the larger department stores and high street shops: sure to provide gift solutions for even the fussiest of recipients, or plenty of choice when looking for that perfect Christmas party outfit.
A new exciting addition to the Dublin Christmas scene for 2019 is Christmas at the Castle - a magical festive market that will be held in the courtyard of Dublin Castle.
Running from 12th until 22nd December, the market will feature a host of food vendors as well as artisan gifts for that perfect unique present.
Featuring carollers, a neopolitan crib, free entry to the State rooms of Dublin Castle between 8pm and 9pm as well as carriage rides around the grounds at weekend, this is bound to make Dublin the place to be this holiday season.
