Description

Celebrate a traditional Christmas in Ballycultra with seasonal music, festive decorations and demonstrations by their talented makers.

Wander the snowy, cobbled streets of Ballycultra this winter and experience a truly traditional Christmas. Meet the craft demonstrators as they prepare for seasonal celebrations and take in the festive scents of Christmas pudding warming on the griddle. Listen out for seasonal tunes from carol singers, a brass band, and other traditional musicians across key dates in the festive season. Warm up with a glass of mulled cordial and try their Christmas cake and Cinnamon toast! Discover the traditions of Christmas past this winter.

Online booking is recommended for the Christmas experience. Walk ups will be permitted but could be limited if the museum is at full capacity. An accessible bus will be available on all dates to transport visitors from the lower car park to the site.
