Christmas in Dublin
In Dublin, Christmas day is only the beginning of celebrating with friends that
doesnt end until the Feast of Epiphany on the 6th of January. Christmas
Shopping: Gifts so perfect that they could only come from Ireland. Dublin is a
wonderful city to visit at Christmas. The Christmas lights are turned on in
November and from that point on, the big Christmas shopping season will have
commenced in earnest. Unique gifts are only part of the journey as you enhance
your experience with tours of Europe's most picturesque cities. From shopping
on Grafton Street and Henry Street, to listening to the carol singers and
buskers on Grafton Street, and to the wonderful Christmas windows, Dublin City Center has loads to offer.
In general, the city has a buzz up to Christmas Eve, and much of the social
activity centres around the pubs (as usual!) There are some outdoor activities
on Christmas day, eg. outdoor walks, Christmas day swims for the hardy souls.
Some hotels stay open over Christmas, with a "package" stay and
organized activities. St. Stephen's Day (Boxing day) has pubs open again, but
only a limited number of shops open. There will be plenty of sporting
activities, however, much of it being of a "fun" nature. Restaurants
will be open, except for Christmas Day. Airports, buses and trains do not
operate on Christmas day, and will have a limited service on 26th. Shops will
generally open about 27th December with sales - hectic for shopaholics.
