Farmleigh now have details of their Christmas events up on their website.
Farmleigh is a lovely 18th century Georgian house and estate located within the Phoenix Park. Once the property of the Guinness family, it's now owned by the Irish State who use it mainly as a B&B (albeit a very salubrious one!) to accommodate visiting dignatories. It can be visited throughout the year but it's especially atmospheric in the lead up to Christmas.
Our own Christmas season wouldn't be complete without our annual visit to the Christmas market at Farmleigh. It's a really nice day out. The main event for us is the small food market full of yummy artisan seasonal goodies (and some which are delicious year round). But there's also a programme of events including carriage rides, a nativity scene with real animals from the estate, tours of Farmleigh House, carol singers, barber shop quartets, as well as storytelling and other children's events, all of which are free. There's also usually stalls selling food and warming drinks to eat right there as well as the small boat house restaurant. There's a free car park just a short walk from the house.
