After nearly one year in planning, ‘Winter Lights Dublin City’ proudly presented by Dublin City Council is now live. The new concept to illuminate the City this Christmas in thirteen locations for 31 days until January 2nd 2019 was conceived to elevate Dublin to take its place amongst the iconic Cities of light around the world.
Dublin has always been enchanting at Christmas with a great family tradition of a trip into town to see the lights. ‘Winter Lights Dublin City’ gives families lots of opportunities to see and experience the magical lights at a time and day that suits them. Some Dubliners love the excitement, hustle and bustle of the City at Christmas. Others will choose a time when the city slumbers, bathed in a magical medley of lights.
Winter Lights Dublin City features thirteen iconic sites illuminated and animated for 31 nights using customised projections. The lights envelop the City with in a festive fantasy with enhanced Christmas lights on city streets and building projections between sunset and 2am each night. The projections are now illuminating City Hall, Trinity College, Liberty Hall, Civic Offices, GPO, The Mansion House, Hugh Lane Gallery, Custom House and Covanta Dublin Waste to Energy Plant in Poolbeg. Enhanced Christmas Lights are on Samuel Beckett Bridge, Millennium Bridge, O'Connell Street and Parliament Street.
