Christmas markets in Dublin you should visit this season

If this December you find yourself in Dublin, try to visit one of the Christmas markets in Dublin (or even better, do the Christmas Market tour) for the festive cheer, mulled wine and awesome stalls. Weather you are looking for gifts for friends & family or something special for yourself, markets are the way to go! These are year in year out our favorites, and we guarantee you will love them!

Christmas markets in Dublin:

Thursday 6th and Friday 7th of December,
Thursday 13th and Friday 14th of December,
Wednesday 19th, Thursday 20th and Friday 21st of December

Dublin Christmas Flea Market

Taking place in the Point Village, you can easily get to this market with LUAS. It is our favorite market – expect loads of mulled wine to warm you up, super cool craft stalls for everything you can imagine, food court and 2nd hand stalls as well – this is after all flea market. With over 140 stalls each long weekend, you will surely find something for yourself and all your friends, be it art, contemporary design, hand-made craft, retro, vintage or antique collectibles.

Gifted – the Contemporary Crafts and Design Fair

While not strictly Christmas market, this is another great fair taking place in Dublin where you can sort all your Christmas gift issues! Expect hundreds of makers, designers and artisan food producers, thousands of unique gifts you won’t find anywhere else, all neatly wrapped up in one event in main hall of RDS. You can take a bus to RDS (7 or 4 from O’Connell Bridge or go for a nice walk and enjoy the (hopefully) sunny December day. Taking place 5-9th December, you get 10% off on all purchases on Wednesday so make sure to check this event out!

Christmas at Glasnevin

Savoir the festive atmosphere and experience the spirit of Christmas with a free visit to Santa and his helpers in his hideaway in the Gardens. Stock up with seasonal goodies, treats, presents and assorted Christmas supplies at our special Christmas market.. As you stroll through the stalls listen out for some festive music along the way with the live choir. This event is taking place on 9th of December, 10am-16.30pm

Not in Dublin for this event? You should visit National Botanical Gardens anyway, they are perfect for a really nice walk and also really close to Glasnevin Cemetery which deserves a bit of your time.
