Christmas in Limerick 2022 Christmas in Limerick 2022


A feast of festivities for all ages this Christmas in Limerick 2022



Christmas in Limerick 2022 offering will be unveiled in the coming weeks and the overarching aim is to ensure that Limerick is an attractive location for people of all ages.

New company contracted to manage Limerick’s festive offering

Limerick City and County Council has engaged a new company to create a festive atmosphere in Limerick this Christmas.

Milestone, which has a wealth of experience in Christmas events, has been responsible for the Christmas Market in Galway for the past decade.


They are tasked with creating various Christmas events at several locations in the city to help promote Limerick City as the place to visit during Christmas time.

The finishing touches are now being put on the Christmas in Limerick 2022 offering, which will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The overarching aim is to ensure that Limerick is an attractive location for people of all ages – from the young to the not-so-young – as they visit Limerick to savour and soak up the unique Christmas in Limerick 2022 spirit.

In addition to Limerick City and County Council-funded events, King John’s Castle, the Limerick City Traders’ Association, and others will have their own events taking place to ensure there is a generous sprinkling of Christmas spirit across the city.

The Christmas lights, all of which are energy-efficient LED lights, will be turned on in November, with our Christmas fayre beginning from the end of that month.

Extra funding has been allocated to create this year’s festive atmosphere, starting in November and continuing across the month of December, in place of a one-off event, to turn on the lights in the city.

Free parking will be available in the Council Car Park off Nicholas Street at weekends, allowing people to Park and Stride a short distance into the city centre, while on-street parking on Sundays will be free.

Eileen Coleman, Head of Tourism with Limerick City and County Council said: “We are really looking forward to Christmas in Limerick this year.  Milestone are a well-respected company with an impressive track record of delivering unforgettable Christmas experiences. We are finalising our plans and look forward to sharing them with the people of Limerick and further afield in the coming weeks.”
