Christmas in Killarney Festival

The Festival started out with the simple idea of getting new Christmas lights for the town and to get people to shop locally for Christmas. he festival is run solely by volunteers through the Killarney Chamber of Commerce and everyone gives their time free of charge. The focus of the festival is on town centre decoration and lighting. We sprinkle in community events such as a weekly Magic Parade, Santa fun run, Tea Dance for the elderly and other commercial events such as Killarney On Ice Dine in Killarney and Christmas concerts and gigs to name but a few. The aim of the festival is to ensure Killarney has a buzz and a wow factor at Christmas time that helps to create another season outside of the traditional tourist season.
