For a truly magical experience for both young and old this Christmas, pop along to Santa’s Workshop in Dublin City Hall which runs from Friday 30th November up until Christmas. Find out more about this fun-filled event with details on how to get there, opening times, nearby Dublin hotels and lots more!
Dublin City Hall is located on Dame Street just 5 minutes from Trinity College, on the way to Christchurch Cathedral. There are a number of bus routes that pass outside the building, including the 50, 50A, 54, 56A, 77, 77A, 77B, 123 and the 150. If you’re travelling by car nearby parking facilities include the Andrew Street car park or the Drury Street car park.
Santa’s Workshop in City Hall is a great way to get your kids into the holiday spirit. This Santa’s Workshop was organised for the first time last year and it was a resounding success. When you visit you can get your kids photo taken with the man himself, ye will also get a gift, a balloon and a storybook. You’ll get all of this for a mere €10! Definitely worth a visit!
The first day of the workshop will be Friday 30th of November and it will then be open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday right up until Christmas. On Sunday the opening hours are 12:30pm to 6pm and on the other three days, the opening hours are 10am to 6pm.
