There are a wealth of organisations in and around Merrion Square hosting a variety of seasonal events on the 30th November.
CHRISTMAS ON THE SQUARE supported by Hennessy brings a hive of activity to Merrion Square on Saturday the 30th of November. The Square will come alive with many of the houses opening their doors for one day only for this special Christmas event. Those opening include the bookshop at the RIAI and the music shop at the Irish Traditional Music Archive. Irish Artisan food producers will be gathered together in the elegant surroundings of the College of Anaesthetists so you can stock up on those important tasty Christmas treats.
You will be able to choose the perfect Irish designed and made Christmas gift at The Irish Architectural Archive. Also at the Archive you will be able to sample some tasty Hennessy winter warming cocktails and have the opportunity to learn more about Hennessy cognac at a tasting and cocktail masterclass, just in time for Christmas. The Goethe Institute will be showing their German Christmas Flair. There will be live musical performances during the afternoon at many of the venues on the Square and a reviving Pop Up café at The Royal Society of Antiquarians of Ireland hosted by Coppa of the RHA. The Art of Christmas, A Wildean Salon all add to the exciting range of events happening on the day.
The National Gallery has a host of free events on the day, including a tour of the collection, an art documentary screening and a family workshop.
