Christmas Activities in Wicklow

Wicklow is at the heart of Ireland’s ancient east, only 30 minutes from Dublin and is home to some of Irelands most beautiful scenery and heritage sites. Christmas in Wicklow is a special time of year with activities for visitors of all ages. We have put together a list of unmissable Christmas events, close to our Wicklow hotel, Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort.


Nothing is more romantic around Christmas time than listening to some festive music at a traditional carol service. We are lucky to have the fabulous Wicklow based group, Sonamus performing an evening of traditional, Baroque and seasonal music. This special concert will take place in The Courthouse Arts Centre on Saturday 9th December and you can buy tickets on their website.

Christmas Market

Why not get a group of your nearest and dearest and head to Kilruddery Farm Market for some Christmas shopping. The market includes some of Wicklow’s finest local craft stalls including food, gifts and lots more. With free parking and free entry, you could get lost for hours and find yourself a real bargain, or a special handmade piece to give as a special Christmas present. The Christmas market opens each weekend in December from 9am-5pm. For more information check out their website.

Christmas Parties

Our stunning hotel offers flexible Christmas party nights for groups of all sizes. Enjoy a festive feast with friends or colleagues in in the Lime Tree restaurant or our Poulaphouca Suite, which caters for up to 120 people. Our Wicklow hotel is situated on the banks of Blessington lakes and only an hour’s drive from Dublin, we can’t think of a more ideal location for your Christmas party. We also offer special overnight rates from as little as €60pps if you want to enjoy the late bar and DJ for a little longer. You can check out the menus or enquire about booking on our website.

Elf Chocolate Workshop

Both adults and children alike have a soft spot for sweet treats, particularly chocolate! The Chocolate Garden of Ireland is hosting an Elf Chocolate Workshop and we think it’s too good to resist. Both adults and children can make their own chocolate mould and decorate a special festive bar to take home. All of this and you have plenty of chocolate tastings, hot chocolate and ice cream while you wait for your mould to set. To make a booking or for more information check out their website.

Whatever you choose to spend your festive season let the luxurious Tulfarris Hotel be your base to stay. Our quality locally sourced food, deluxe suites and friendly staff will have you returning to us year on year. You can book directly with us online, via email or phone.
