See Santa at Town Square
Santa is back this festive season, as part of a magical outdoor Christmas experience, which brings shoppers on a journey through an enchanted winter forest that tells the tale of ‘Once Upon a Christmas’. At Town Square, you will experience the immersive Christmas pop-up storybook as you take a journey through the enchanted forest. Twinkling lights and The Fairy Bridge will get you into the festive mood, while Santa’s Storytime Set at the bandstand in Town Square will take centre stage. Children hoping to get a glimpse of Santa can stop by Town Square between 3pm and 6pm every Thursday to Sunday in the lead-up to Christmas. Santa will perform a number of Christmas singalong classics and narrate some traditional Christmas stories for the whole family to enjoy. Children can submit their own stories by emailing them to [email protected] This complimentary Santa experience does not require tickets, but queue management systems and social distancing measures will be in place to ensure the health and safety of everyone there, while also providing a memorable Santa experience.
Stop and dine
Pembroke Square has also been transformed into a spectacular polar bear lake with an pop-up polar bears and Christmas trees. Kids can get their photo taken at the life-size Naughty or Nice Book, at the heart of the Pembroke District, Dundrum Town Centre’s dining quarter, where Donnybrook Fair will open its two-storey food emporium with a smart-casual restaurant shortly. Unwind over a glass of wine and lunch or dinner here, or one of the other gorgeous restaurants in Pembroke District, with the magical scene as a backdrop.
