Christmas Markets in Laois & Offaly

Updated: Nov 22



I am very excited to share this list of #ChristmasMarkets happening across #Laois AND #Offaly this #Christmas Season. The first is in Mountmellick this weekend and there will be markets running all across Laois and Offaly, right up to December 23rd.


Mountmellick are also holding a second market this year, featuring all local crafters on Sunday, 27 November in the Church of Ireland School House starting at 11.30am-3.30pm - be sure not to miss it!


It is important to #ShopLocal, all year round, but especially so at #Christmas and visiting your local festive market is a great way to meet the wonderful crafters, makers, bakers and artists who produce fantastic gifts to be cherished.
