The Irish Village reveals date for 2019 Christmas tree lighting

If you love Christmas in Dubai, then there’s one event you’ll be eagerly awaiting – The Irish Village Christmas tree lighting party.

Every year The Irish Village goes all out when it comes to Christmas, and this year is no different.

The Irish Village will be throwing its annual tree lighting bash on Wednesday December 11, and we suggest you mark it in your diary now.

The popular pub in Garhoud will be hosting a special party, with carol singing from both the St Mary's Church Choir and Dubai Duty Free choir, mince pies, mulled grape and the big switch on.

It all kicks off at 7pm, so be there sharp for a glass of mulled grape.

Families are encouraged to bring along their children for the festive spectacular too, and free mince pies are handed out.

If you can’t make it to the tree lighting, then make sure you reserve your space for Christmas lunch, with visits from Santa and more.

Taking place at our Pub of the Year on Wednesday December 25 from noon until 4pm, Santa will be coming to pay a visit to all families, along with dishing out pressies to little ones aged two to 12.

You can dig into a buffet filled with Christmas treats, including a carvery, turkey with traditional trimmings and plenty more to pick from. Plus there’s a live band to get you rocking around the Christmas tree (literally).
