Christmas in Killarney

What a fantastically festive weekend I’ve just had. Saturday morning found me dressed in a Santa Suit signing up participants for Killarney’s first Santa Fun Run. The atmosphere was fantastic and saw 150 people (including a few Santa suited Dogs) take to the streets along a 10km route that weaved through the National Park and back to Scott Street. The cold was kept at bay with entertainment by musician Liam O’Connor & DJ Botty.

Next onto the Christmas in Killarney festival markets where I got very carried away buying everything from gourmet pies to stained glass stocking fillers. We passed both the Ice Rink and Free Santa’s Grotto which were both in full swing. The festival really has grown to provide something for everyone from Opera performances to Monster Sales and Street Entertainment to Guided climbs of Ireland’s highest peak – It certainly got me in the Christmas Spirit - www.christmasinkillarney.com
