Dublin Winter Lights are Back!

November 23, 2021

Dublin City Council announced the return of the spectacular ‘Dublin Winter Lights’. The lights were switched on last week and will remain on until January 1st.

21 locations, in the form of 2 walking trails around the city, have been transformed with colourful projections and lighting displays. Five new locations have been added this year including the historical Liberties area, and we are delighted to introduce Merrion Square Park, the details of which will be launched very shortly.

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Alison Gilliland says she’s delighted to see the lights return: “I’ve been a huge fan of ‘Dublin Winter Lights’ ever since it began in 2018. The contrast between the bright lights and the dark evenings makes for a stunning backdrop to the city. I am delighted to see representative photos of so many of our community volunteers on the light sails of Smithfield Square. They really are the heart of every community. Our Childrens Wall on Barnardo Square will project entries from our recent Children’s Art Competition. We all need a bit of colour in our lives so I would encourage Dubliners to visit the city-centre and take in as many locations as they can. I know that’s definitely something I’ll be doing this festive season!”
