Christmas in Killarney

Killarney is a special place to visit at any time of the year but a Christmas time the streets come alive with the magical events of the Christmas in Killarney festival. Great Southern Killarney becomes a festive hub for visitors during the month of December and is the ideal town centre location to enjoy all the festivities of Christmas in Killarney.

From Ice Skating to Magic Parades and shopping to Muckross Christmas Magic there is something for everyone.

The Magic Parade:

The Christmas in Killarney Magic Parade takes place on Saturday November 24th, December 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd at 6pm. You and your family can watch Santa travel through the town with all of the magical floats.

Killarney on Ice:

Killarney on Ice returns to the Christmas in Killarney festival this year. It runs from 29th November until 6th January. Suitable for both adults and children alike it is the perfect activity for those cold Christmas Afternoons.

Muckross Christmas Magic

New to the Christmas in Killarney festival in 2016, Muckross House Trustees have a fantastic treat in store for visitors this December. The Mucklorians along with the Christmas Elves are helping Santa get ready for Christmas. Horse drawn carriages will travel along the avenue of lights to the Mucklorian village. Visit the village Post Office to get your Santa letter stamped and help the Elves with the parcels in the toy workshop. Afterwards you can check Santa’s Naughty or Nice book.

Sip some warm hot chocolate by the open fire while Mrs Claus shares a Christmas story before paying a visit to the man himself, Santa.

Santa at Old Market Lane

Pay a visit to Santa at Old Market Lane. Santa will be at Old Market Lane every weekend from December 1st until December 23rd and daily from December 19th until December 23rd.
