Christmas Shopping Guide

- Posted on: 28/10/2021 - $itemValue.title

With only a few short weeks to go until December now is the time to start Christmas shopping preparations. Whether you are a laidback Larry or a Paula Planner we have done the hard work and put together a fantastic Christmas Shopping Guide for you. 

The ideal time to hit the shops is midweek of course, avoid the crowds, messy shops and plan your shopping trip midweek to get the best value for your time and efforts. Plan to set off early after a fulfilling breakfast and shop ‘til you drop then relax in our cosy, inviting lobby enjoying a hand-crafted cocktail and some festive treats. 

We are conveniently located close to 4 major shopping locations in Dublin, the closest to us being Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. With 180 stores, 3 retail parks and 25 restaurants you will be sure to find everything from Bershka to Build a Bear, not forgetting Smyths and the Disney Store. Only a 12-minute drive from the hotel you won’t have far to go to climb into a fluffy hotel bed for a comfortable night sleep after a successful day of shopping. 


Liffey Valley Shopping Centre is a 20 minute drive with over 3,600 complimentary car parking spaces and shops like Penneys, Rituals, Quiz and Flying Tiger whether it is beauty products or stocking fillers you are looking for you surely won’t come out empty handed. 

Dundrum Shopping Centre and Dublin City Centre are both approximately 30-35 minutes away with a wide variety of stores available. Check out our Christmas Shopping Guide for more information. 

After all that shopping relax and unwind in our jacuzzi, enjoy a dip in our 18 metre swimming pool and relish the knowledge you have one more thing ticked off the list!

Book your festive stay now and enjoy an overnight stay, bed and breakfast, choice of festive drink and festive treats to be enjoyed in the lobby.
