Farmleigh Christmas Market and events

The annual Christmas food market will be held in Farmleigh in the Phoenix Park from 10am to 5pm on Saturday/Sunday 5/6, 12/13 and 19/20 December.

As well as a mouthwatering array of delicious Irish produce (last year the Bellingham Blue farmhouse cheese from County Louth together with the homemade pear chutney was a huge hit in our house), there's lots of free events and music for adults and children, including:

- carol singers (including a barbershop quartet, a gospel choir and he choir of St. Patrick's Cathedral)

- puppet shows

- magic shows

- storytelling

- horse and carriage rides

- a crib with real donkeys

- tours of Farmleigh House

It's all very atmospheric and there's usually plenty of tasty foods and warming drinks on sale to ward off the winter chill.

Must pop over!

Visitors and locals may also be interested in the "12 days of Christmas" Christmas market which takes place in the Dublin Docklands.

It starts officially on the 12th of December although the 10th and 11th of Dec are preview days. It can get very crowded at the weekends but there is a nice atmosphere!

If I can rouse the wife and son from their post-Atlantic crossing nap, we'll be there this Sunday (December 6). We hope to be able to hit the Dalkey Castle Medieval Christmas program also.

Thanks tapl
