Stuck For Something To Do Over The Festive Season? Look No Further…


Here at Nova we love to get out and about during the festive season…

There is nothing more relaxing and enjoyable than spending time with your nearest and dearest, sipping hot chocolate all the while wrapped in your winter woolies.

But every now and again, we might get a dose of cabin fever, wanting to venture into the elements for some festive cheer.

So here we are sharing our top tips for some Christmas fun with you!

Dundrum On Ice: If you’re in the mood to unleash your inner ‘Torvill and Dean’, you’re in luck; this 500m squared rink is back in Dundrum until mid-January. For full details visit the site here

Smithfield Lights Event: The Smithfield Lights Event returns again this year and has plenty of family-friendly activities lined up. Alongside market stalls there will be face-painting, workshops and an outdoor screening of the Christmas classic The Snowman. For more info visit:

Drive-In Cinema: If you’re a movie buff but fancy a change of location from your local multiplex, Retro Drive In at Leopardstown Racecourse might be an idea. Not only are they showing festive classics including Love Actually, Home Alone, Elf and Santa Claus: The Movie they also have the world’s biggest outdoor LED screen to boot!

Carols by Candlelight, National Concert Hall: Like your Christmas carols but not in the mood for them being bashed by your local choir? Well the National Concert Hall is doing carols in full 18th century costume with a candle-lit style setting. Even the most ardent Christmas grinch among us couldn’t help but be swept into the festive spirit after this concert. Click here for more info.

Winter Funderland: Winter Funderland has become a permanent fixture on the festive calendar here in Dublin (as you would imagine after forty plus years at the RDS). They now also have a Christmas market, when you fancy a break from all the adrenaline fuelled rides. For more info click here
