21 sparkling photos of the best Christmas light displays all over Ireland

All of the most dazzling, twinkling lights around the country.

THE CHRISTMAS SEASON is upon us and towns the length and breadth of the country have decked themselves out in sparkles. Giant Christmas trees have been erected and fairy lights are strewn across every available surface.

The result? Everywhere just looks a bit more magic.

Let’s take a gander at some of the best light displays around the country, shall we?

Dublin’s Henry Street has been wrapped in a glittering red bow for the month that’s in it.

The most Christmassy house in Dublin is back at it again this year.

William Tilly from Bath Avenue, Sandyford, decorates his house every year and raises money for Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross.

Cork is looking only fabulous this year.

The Apple Market in Waterford is nothing short of a winter wonderland.

One of the most popular features at this year's Winter Village at The Apple Market is our interactive dancing Snowmen experience! Great festive fun for young and old alike. Our elves will guide you into the dance pen, blast out a Christmas tune and then it's time for you to bust your moves and show the Snowmen what you got! The Snowmen on the giant screen will mimic you and your friends' dance moves back at you! It's like looking at yourselves in a mirror, only as Snowmen in a fabulous Winter Scene! #theapplemarket #waterford #winterval #winterval2017 #waterfordcity #snowmen #discoverwaterford #discoverireland #christmas #chistmasireland @waterfordcitycentre @waterfordcc @pf_waterford @an.siopa.waterford @bodegawaterford @revolution_waterford @burzzarestaurant @kazbar_waterford @winterval_waterford @heerys_wford @thehubwaterford @davymacs1

While Ennis is as pretty as a Christmas card.

Every year, Tony Fitzpatrick and his family light up their house in Drinagh, Co. Wexford to raise funds for charity. As you can see, it’s pretty spectacular.

Carlingford is understated, but oh-so-charming.

This house in Tallaght is certainly getting in the Christmas spirit.

Kilkenny is so sparkly that you have to squint.

Here’s the Latin Quarter in Galway looking wonderfully festive and inviting.

Kildare Village is spreading joy <3

Belfast City Hall has gone all out with their decorations.

This garden in Dunmanway, Co. Cork, is just magical.

Temple Bar has never looked prettier :’)

Letterkenny is a sight for sore eyes.

And finally, there’s Dublin’s Grafton Street. It may be hectic at this time of year, but it sure is beautiful.
