Christmas lights in Dublin

The Brown Thomas Christmas display is lit up. The ‘Grafton Quarter’ is illuminated. Now all that’s left is to light the Christmas trees around Dublin.

Dublin City Council has provided 30 Christmas trees to local communities and there are designated lighting ceremonies for each.

The lights of the 30 trees will be switched on around the city from late November to mid-December as the festive spirit ramps up in the nation’s capital.

Speaking about the initiative, Lord Mayor Paul McAuliffe said: “Christmas is a special time that brings local communities together. As part of these celebrations Dublin City Council is providing Christmas Trees at locations throughout the city and I invite locals to come along and join in the festivities.”
