The Magic of the Nutcracker - Christmas at Dublin Castle

Every Saturday and Sunday in December, starting Saturday 30th November til 22nd December, Dublin Castle will be hosting some festive events to celebrate the Magic of The Nutcracker, including evening poetry, choral and music events. 


For the kids, a free children’s magic show will take place from 12.30pm to 3.30pm each Saturday (i.e. 30th November, 7th/14th/21st December). Free children’s storytelling with Clara takes place on each Sunday (ie 1st/8th/15th/22nd December) from 12.30pm-3.30pm. 

Families can also explore the Nutcracker themed State Apartments of Dublin Castle and meet the characters from the fairytale (the latter costs €10 for a family). Kids will get a chance to meet Santa too and post their letters. Every Saturday and Sunday from 12 noon to 4pm, you can have your photo taken with the characters from the Nutcracker. 

There will be a Christmas Market on the Upper Courtyard every weekend and choirs will perform from 1.30-3.30pm. A craft fair will take place on December 15th from 1am to 5pm in the Bedford Hall.
