CHRISTMAS IS COMING. There, we said it.

But that means brilliant things are on the way too, and a truly Dublin Christmas experience for kids has always involved visiting Santa in Clerys.

The department store may be no more, but the same cannot be said for Santa. He’s simply moved to pastures new. And yes, it’s the actual Clerys Santa.
