The Moving Crib will be opening its doors for its 61st year this Christmas season on 28th November!

A multi – generational, FREE event that never fails to entertain both children and adults alike. The Moving Crib, the mention of which always evokes a smile and fond memories of Dublin in the ‘rare auld times’ is the only one of its kind built in Ireland (if not the world) and is a historical and entertaining experience, This Dublin landmark is as captivating today as it was when it first opened its doors in 1956.
