Dublin Is Getting A MASSIVE Christmas Tree This Year


It’s just been announced that Dublin is getting a massive Christmas tree this year, just like the one in New York’s Rockefeller Plaza.

The 50-foot tall tree will be the centrepiece of the capital’s very first food, drink, craft and horticulture Christmas festival, dubbed ‘I Believe’, which has been launched by Lord Mayor Críona Ní Dhálaigh.

Creating 230 seasonal jobs, the Christmas festival will run from Thursday, November 26 until Wednesday, December 23, and is expected to inject an incredible €8.4 million into the economy.

Businesses across the country are being encouraged to join the Christmas village and provide festive foods, crafts, gifting, toys and horticulture.

But not only does ‘I Believe’ aim to raise festive cheer, but also funds and awareness for Irish charities, like Temple Street Foundation, Simon Communities Ireland, Christina Noble Children’s Foundation, and many more.

The festival will take place in the the Custom House Quarter, including George’s Dock and The chq Building.
