You can say that Christmas is truly in the air especially when your eyes are being filled with an endless variety of Christmas decors wherever you turn your head to. 

In Dublin, whether you choose to stay in your serviced apartment in Ballsbridge, a luxurious stay in your Dublin city centre hotel room or enjoy house-sitting in your cosy apartment somewhere throughout Dublin, you can effortlessly feel the awesome and unparalleled Christmas atmosphere. 

And as you step out of your soft and comfy bed, and totally out of the four corners of your room, you’ll be in total awe with the feeling you get just by seeing the Christmas decors surrounding the whole town. 

Well, that’s what the city of Dublin is great for! Having said that, you may want to check out Grafton Street and its astounding Christmasy vibe. 


3. Experience Dublin’s extraordinary pub life


This wonderful city is also known for its marvelous pub life which is best experienced at night. 

But aside from that, Dublin’s pub life gets much better in Christmas season as it is joined by the glowing Christmas lights and shining tinsel.

Usually, on Christmas Eve, offices and establishments close earlier than usual and the employees and/or workers come to the pub of their choice to have some beer or lunch with either their co-workers, friends, or family. 

It’s more like Dubliners go pub hopping but take note that Dublin bars also close early to give families some time to celebrate together in the comfort of their home. 

The newest tradition that’s being practiced not only by the Dubliners but by most [if not all] of the Irish people is the “12 Pubs of Christmas”


4. Be charmed by Dublin’s charming Christmas lights


Aside from the extremely thrilling pub life, one of the many things you must look forward to when spending Christmas in Dublin are the charming Christmas lights that light up the place and give that absolute Christmas vibe. 

In fact, as early as the end of the month of November, the Grafton Street lights are switched on to ignite the Christmas in the hearts of not only the Dubliners but as well as the lovely tourists of this extraordinary city/.

There’s also normally a special guest and many conducted family-based entertainment to spice up the event. 


Final say: 

And… that’s a total wrap! You’ve finally found out the reasons why Dublin is one of the perfect places to spend Christmas on earth regardless if you’re a Dubliner or a travel buff seeking for a new Christmas adventure. 

The next thing you would want to do is to book a flight to Dublin, pack up your things, enjoy your entire Dublin visit, and last but definitely, something you shouldn’t forget is to share your travel experiences and/or stories with us! Okay?
