December 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 4:30 pm

Fill your bags with locally handcrafted goodies from our Christmas Eco Craft Market. This year the Market will boast about 70 gorgeous stalls brimming with food and sustainable gift ideas.

The Market and the gardens will be open from 10am – 4.30pm on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15.

In addition we will have special free performances and demonstrations:

On Saturday 14 December at 12pm champions of vocal harmony 4 in a Bar will perform. At 1pm Seal Rescue Ireland will demonstrate how to make eco brick and at 2.30pm the Met Éireann choir the Isobars will sing.

On Sunday 15 December at 12.30pm there will be another opportunity to see the Seal Rescue Ireland eco brick demonstration. From 1.30pm Santa Claus will receive visitors. Please pick up your tickets (free of charge) from the Visitor Centre reception. At 2pm and again at 3.15pm the CORús choir will sing Christmas carols and festive hits.

Please bear in mind that there will be a queue to see Santa. We would like to encourage our visitors to avail of public transport or walk to the Botanic Gardens where possible as we have limited parking (especially on busy weekends) and it is better for the environment.
