At the Wicklow Christmas Market you will find plenty of stalls to get you in the Christmas mood. So why not come on down and try out some of our local artisan foods, buy some decorations or find a gift for a loved one or family.

The Santa Express will transport you on a magical journey.

Driven by one of Santa’s favourite elves… Oribel, who is mischievous and fun. He’ll take you to Santa’s wonderland workshops where his most creative elves will show you how to make some of your own magical gifts. Mrs Claus will read one of her favourite Christmas tales too!

The grown-ups can enjoy some of Mrs Claus's festive Wildside punch.

Of course, Santa will be waiting to meet all the boys and girls so they can tell him about their wishes for Christmas. Each family will meet Santa individually and each child will get a special gift from Santa.

Don't forget to enter our festive colouring competition too.

Let us know you’re coming so we can save your seats.
