Dún Laoghaire chosen for Official North Pole Post Box

November 28, 2018, 13:02

Dún Laoghaire chosen for
Official North Pole Post Box
The Dún Laoghaire Christmas Festival | November 24th to December 23rd 2018


Two North Pole Post Elves placed an official post box in Dún Laoghaire by special commission of Santa Claus in a flurry of snow this week.  Children are asked to post their letters and include their name and address to get a reply from Santa before Christmas Day. The postal address is Santa Claus, North Pole, The Arctic, The World, The Universe.


Santa's Postbox is located at the Christmas Tree opposite dlr LexIcon and is open to receive letters right up to Sunday December 16th. Two of Santa’s North Pole Post elves, Jingle Snickerdoodle and Twinkle McSprinkles, have been commissioned to pick up letters each Sunday at 5pm. The letters will be whizzed off to the North Pole via Elf Airlines direct to Santa who will reply to each letter. 


This year Dún Laoghaire is all dressed up for Christmas, but not just with twinkling lights and the usual festive fare! The Dún Laoghaire Christmas Festival features the largest ever display of Christmas lights in Dún Laoghaire, the iconic Ferris Wheel from the movie ‘Grease’, a Vintage Funfair, Santa’s Post Box and the very popular Christmas market with a traditional and nostalgic theme bringing the magic of Christmas and a winter wonderland for the festive season.


The Dún Laoghaire Christmas Market is a feast for the seasonal senses as carefully selected vendors sell authentic hand-made gifts and delicious treats every weekend from November 24th to December 23rd on the metals and opposite dlr LexIcon from 11am to 7pm.  Aromas of gourmet sausages, crepes, baked goods, Hungarian Beef Goulash Soup and Lángos, German Gluhwein and steaming hot chocolate will fill the air as you wander through the Christmas Market with hand-crafted gifts and decorations, jewellery, metal art, sculpture, photography and a whole host of very special quality gifts and treats that are not mass-produced but hand crafted with love.


Dún Laoghaire has over 280 retail outlets and businesses so why not swap city centre crowds and stuffed out-of-town shopping centres to browse, shop, relax and soak up the festive spirit of this magical seaside town. During the Christmas Festival with every hour of parking purchased on street in the Dún Laoghaire town centre, one hour is free. Shops all over Dún Laoghaire town will be running special promotional events in the run up to Christmas, extra trading hours and exclusive in-store promotions add some extra festive cheer.
