IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DUNDRUM TOWN CENTRE
Plan a day out at Dundrum Town Centre this winter …
Shop early, shop smart! This Christmas, we’re visiting Dundrum Town Centre for all our festive shopping needs. With great gifting options for everyone on your list, you’ll be spoiled for choice. There are so many new pop-ups to visit, from Irish brands The Head Plan, Aoife Mullane and Crystals & Co, and brand new stores like Dunnes Stores Home. But that’s not all …
November is also the time to do a little social planning, booking brunches, lunches and dinners for the festive season. From chic Ananda to The Flying Duck, Siam Thai and The Port House Ibericos, there’s a spot to suit a school mums’ dinner, a family get-together, or a multi-generational Sunday lunch.
When it comes to looking party-ready, Dundrum Town Centre is unrivalled for beauty, skincare and haircare salons and services: book soon! And don’t forget the incredible range of beauty, fragrance and make-up gifts available across the centre. From palettes to perfumes, it’s all there, to guarantee you Give Wonderfully this Christmas.
Dundrum Town Centre’s new charity partner for this Christmas season, Making Connections, is a community-based charity to alleviate loneliness and isolation among older people, helping them stay healthy and socially connected. Customers can donate to Making Connections at the Giving Tree on Level 1 and/or buy a gift for one of the people the charity supports, attaching a gift tag – the charity will then distribute the gifts.
Drinks and dinner at The Flying Duck, festive brunch at The Loft at Donnybrook Fair, above, family lunch at Jamie’s Italian. Oh, and don’t forget a Smash Burger at Smash It at Harvey Nichols!
… AND DOING
Take a whirl around the ice rink, a trip to see Santa in his cosy grotto, or a festive movie at Movies at Dundrum … all activities to get you in the mood for Christmas.
