The Moving Crib

November 27, 2018 @ 11:00 am - January 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm


Yet again, one of Dublin’s oldest treasures, The Moving Crib at 42 Parnell Square West, Dublin 1 will be opening its doors this Christmas Season from the 27th of November. This is its 62nd year captivating generations of families. Children and adults alike and best of all it’s free!

It’s history and old world charm is unchanged and has led to many describing it as “a wonderful hidden gem in Dublin City” and “a real Dublin Institution that will give you a warm glow for the true meaning of Christmas”.

Winding your way down to the basement of this stunning Georgian building, you are greeted with a montage of many historical / fun stories, including Noah’s Ark, The Wise Men and many more, its scenes, competitions, an illusion wall and a little touch of magic are all sure to guarantee a fun day out for all the family! Children are encouraged to draw and colour a Leaf, cut out the shape and bring it with them so that they can be placed in the Garden of Eden forever.

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); it is a historical and entertaining experience. This Dublin landmark is as captivating today as it was when it first opened its doors in 1956 and admission is still FREE.

Don’t miss the wonderful Bray Gospel Choir whose passion for Gospel and Soul music is renowned, performing on the 9th December from 12 noon -4pm.

OPEN – 7 Days a Week – November 27th, 2018 to January 6th, 2019*
(Closed Christmas Day, St Stephen’s Day and New Year’s Day)
