Christmas on the Square
I have been asked by The Irish Architectural Archive to communicate the return of our pop up "Christmas on the Square".
The event is taking place between 10 am and 5 pm in the Irish Architectural Archive, 45 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 on Saturday, Nov. 30th.
Christmas on the Square is a great place to pick up Christmas Gifts created by Irish designers and craftspeople.
They will be serving mulled wine during the day and we are hoping for a visit from Santa himself who has promised to drop in and say hello!
All residents are invited to McGrattan's Bar, Fitzwilliam Lane on Thursday, November 28th, from 8 p.m. for Christmas drinks. This will be an informal evening and an opportunity for neighbours to get to know one another in a convivial setting.
