The Lord Mayor, Cllr Andrew Montague, yesterday launched the official Dublin At Christmas event for 2011. All events are now on a new website www.dublinatchristmas.ie which is the ultimate online guide for Christmas in the city. This super seasonal website is Dublin’s one stop shop for information on all aspects of Christmas in Dublin’s fair city. The site will feature details of events for all of the family, fun for you and your friends and great special offers in shops, restaurants, bars and hotels along with essential information for shopping and going out in Dublin.
Lord Mayor Andrew Montague said ‘The message we have today is Dublin city is where Christmas is happening this year. Dublin City BID, the business community, the public transport providers and the City Council have come together to make sure that the city will be a fantastic festive experience this Christmas and New Year. There are many family focused events and traditional favourites for all ages to enjoy. There are many ways of getting to Dublin on public transport and by car. Why not avail of the 50% reduction in on street parking by using the Parking Tag? It has never been easier to shop, socialise or just enjoy Dublin’s unique atmosphere at Christmas.’
