Decorating your home with festive Christmas lights is becoming more popular annually. Many private homeowners now go big with their Christmas lights and decorations and use it as an opportunity to raise money for charity. These charity Christmas light displays are absolutely amazing to look at, and we highly recommend a drive to your nearest one in the run up to Christmas.
One of our favourite things over the holidays is seeing all the wonderful Christmas lights and decorations that people put up. This year our own housing estate has gone up a notch in terms of the fabulous lights around everyone’s homes. So cheerful at this time of year when evenings get dark early and it can be a bit gloomy!
We’ve put together this list of spectacular charity Christmas light displays around Ireland that are definitely worth a visit – don’t forget to bring some cash or your card to donate!
