Glow, A Cork Christmas Celebration

Get your Christmas off to a glowing start this year at Glow, A Cork Christmas Celebration.

This 12 day Christmas Festival will take place in Cork on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 27th November to 20th December.
Experience the magic of Christmas as you wander through a FREE family friendly wonderland in Bishop Lucey Park, located in the heart of the city on the Grand Parade. The Park will be transformed into Santa’s Workshop by SPRAOI and children will be transported to a world of wonder as they watch elves at play and at work, and enjoy the interactive and live toys on display. They can also post their letter to the North Pole, and see the North Pole express toy train. The park will open from 4pm-8pm Friday to Sunday for the duration of the festival and the journey takes approximately 20 minutes.

Visitors can also take a seat on Ireland’s largest Ferris wheel for a 30m high ride with stunning views of the city’s skyline, and children will love the vintage carousel.
A seating area outside the park on Grand Parade is the perfect vantage point to take in the atmosphere and you can treat yourself at a number of local food stalls located here. Cork’s famous food market, The English Market, is also just across the road.
