It’s sometimes hard to stop and take a few moments out of your busy life to take in the beauty of Dublin at Christmas time. If you have a moment to stop and appreciate it, Christmas in Dublin can be rather lovely. The Christmas lights, the shoppers, the drinkers, the barmen… it’s tempting to say that there’s nothing quite like it.
Filmmaker Garreth Caulfield has made this 90-second video that sums it all up. Sometimes we feel lucky to live here. With Christmas Markets, Fun Fairs and displays Dublin is a city full of Xmas attractions. With a focus on supporting Irish businesses, traders, craftspeople, producers and charities, I BELIEVE™ will run for 28 days in the lead-up to Christmas from Thursday, 26th November until Wednesday, 23rd December at the exceptional setting of Custom House Quarter in Dublin, which includes George’s Dock, The chq Building and its surrounding area.
