Christmas Shopping Wonderland with Monster Sale & Open Air Markets

04 December 2008

A major part of the Christmas in Killarney festivities this year will be an Irish & International Food & Craft Market, with over 30 stalls displaying a wonderful selection of craft products and all types of savoury delights.  Located on Main Street in Killarney on 6th- 7th & 13th- 14th December under the soft glow of Christmas Street lights and the sound of Christmas songs - it is a must for all Christmas Shoppers providing visitors and locals alike the opportunity to purchase food and craft products in a festive and friendly environment that is all part of the successful festival. The Markets on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th December coincide with the annual Monster Sale which sees numerous local shops offering up to 10% off their goods. Watch out for Monster Sale Posters in participating store windows!

The fourth year of the Christmas in Killarney festivals Open Air Markets will be embracing a more local flavour, with Craft and Food products being hand-made by the people of Killarney, Kerry and the surrounding counties. The selection will range from hand-made ceramic products, stained-glass, candles and hand-painted slates, which will all make wonderful and unique gift ideas. Shoppers can also treat themselves and their loved ones to a culinary delicacy ranging from organic cheese, fudge, preserves, a vast array of breads, charcuterie and gift hampers... Something for all tastes and palates!

The markets will be an opportunity for shoppers to awaken the cherry-cheeked child in themselves this Christmas and experience the magical atmosphere of the Christmas in Killarney Market, and if the cold begins to bite, shoppers can always warm up to a delicious hot-chocolate. The Market will take place on Main Street, this weekend 6th & 7th and next weekend 13th & 14th of December from 10am to 6 pm Saturdays and  12noon to 6pm Sundays. Also be sure to visit the additional stalls that will line the Laurels Lane just off the Market Cross.

In the coming weeks more new and exciting Christmas in Killarney events and activities will be announced; and up to the minute information can be found on
