Winter Wonderland in Kilmainham
So many Christmas markets! As well as Temple Bar, Docklands, and Christ Church Cathedral, one of the other choices you have today is 7 Up Winter Wonderland in the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Unlike those other markets I've mentioned this event has a lot more to it than just a market: there's an ice rink, circus, Santa Claus, and various rollercoaster-type rides.
And thank goodness, because the market part of Winter Wonderland isn't anything special, certainly not worth a visit for its own sake. The food and drink is quite... germanic, like a poor (but pricey) imitation of Oktoberfest. I happen to like German food, but not everyone does.
