Share This Post


With the spectacular Christmas lights now on at The Crescent Shopping Centre, it’s a Christmas paradise at the Crescent to get you into the festive mood while starting the Christmas list for loved ones.

The most popular man at Christmas, Santa, will be arriving in eco-friendly style at the Crescent Shopping Centre on Sunday November 24th at 1pm in his three carriage electric train to the Crescent.  Santa will meet all the kids and families at the Garryowen Mall entrance (next to River Island) before making his way through the Malls with musical accompaniment, stilt walking drummers, Christmas characters, Jorge the Christmas Bear, Princess Bella, Jolly Jingles and lively activity with Limerick Pantomime Society with treats for the kids. 

Join the parade to lead Santa down to his new North Pole Santa Station located out on the Civic Plaza outside the City Mall and enjoy a variety of hot food and explore Christmas crafts at the Crescent Shopping Centre’s Christmas Market running from Friday to Sunday through the month of December on the City Mall.

For fashionistas and families alike, Black Friday takes place on 29th Nov. with over 90 retailers, you’re sure to find great value on everything you need for Christmas!  Check out Crescent social media in the lead up for flash sales and special offers!

Munster’s leading Shopping Centre will start its Christmas late opening hours from Saturday 07 December. The Crescent Shopping Centre has over 90 stores and services as well as boasting top brands, great value and free parking. See Crescent social for late night openings and Santa Grotto Opening Hours and events like “Crooners at the Crescent” with Liam O Brien.

Crescent Shopping Centre Manager, John Davitt, said: “The Crescent Shopping Centre is synonymous in Limerick and the surrounding counties as the shopping mecca for Christmas, and this year is no different.  We are excited to welcome Santa back to his Santa Station, along with some lovely food and craft offerings as part of the Christmas Market here at the Crescent from Friday to Sunday throughout the month of December plus intermittent musical performances, for an ambient fun filled family Christmas at the Crescent.”

“The centre offers great gift ideas along with the Crescent Gift Card for those that like to pick their own present, eateries and of course the 12-Screen Cinema to entertain young and old this festive season” he added
