Ireland’s Ancient East prepares for the festive season as the Drogheda Christmas Festival launches the first magical event of its kind. Building on the momentum of the successful Fleadh Cheoil, a music festival which brought an astonishing 700,000 people to the historic town of Drogheda, the Christmas festival is expected to bring thousands back to the historical town.
The Drogheda Christmas Festival will be taking place from Friday December 6th to Sunday December 8th. Supported by the Louth City Council and sponsored by The D Hotel, Scotch Hall, Drogheda Credit Union and other local brands, some of Drogheda’s biggest tourist attractions and shopping destinations will be magically transformed into a winter wonderland.
This family-friendly event will see Mr. & Mrs. Claus making an appearance in front of a beautiful display of lights on St. Peter’s Church, West Street where visitors will also get the chance to enjoy a Christmas market of over 50 of the highest quality craft and food exhibitions.
The promenade at the D Hotel and Scotch Hall Shopping Centre will see a stunning vintage carousel, an outdoor cinema which will screen some of the best Christmas films, live music & entertainment, a mini Christmas village and much more!
