The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in Ireland 2018

Christmas Markets in Ireland

Christmas time, Noel or Yule, whichever way you like to say the forthcoming winter holiday season, it doesn’t really matter because at the end of day it all boils down to the fact that ’tis the season to be jolly’. And I, like many of you reading this guide, know that it ain’t really Christmas time unless you’ve been to the Christmas Markets.

The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Markets in Ireland - Chirstmas Market Chalet

Big or small, in the big city or the local village, Christmas Markets are all set to go go go. Artisans, Crafters, Bakers, Makers and Doers have prepared for months for this time of year, when they get the opportunity to sell their wares. Step up rosy cheeked children laden down with piggy bank savings, and adults who mulled over wine and minced over pies. The time is nigh to make use of those bags for life and buy something meaningful for that someone special. Show support for the Sellers because it’s their Christmas too.

 

Top Tips for a Great Christmas Market Experience

  • bring cash
  • pack a bag for purchases
  • bring a pram /stroller for small children
  • check the weather and dress accordingly
  • if there’s a website, check it and know what to look forward to
  • support local artists and craftspeople.
  • there’s nearly always food so you won’t starve
  • just in case, buy extra baked goods and handmade chocolates.
