The Festival Lounge


An exciting new feature at this year’s Airtricity Dublin Docklands Christmas Festival is our sensational Festival Lounge.  Step through the doors of the eye-popping candy-striped marquee situated on the event platform on Georges Dock and prepare for a feast of musical entertainment.


The Festival Lounge is open - free of charge - to all festival attendees from 12-6pm, so gather your bags and children after your long day of frantic Christmas shopping and unwind. We’ve invited schools and choirs throughout Dublin to perform a few sets on stage to ease you into the Christmas spirit with some merry tunes. So grab a mulled wine by the bar, take a seat and soak up the festive atmosphere. Take note of the following performances:
