Live Animal Crib at The Mansion House
The IFA Live Animal Crib is BACK! The much-loved joint initiative between Dublin City Council and the Irish Farmers’ Association celebrates its 21st year at the front of the Mansion House.
The Crib is now open to the public from 11 am – 5 pm each day until Christmas Eve (The Crib will close at 1 pm on Christmas Eve). Be sure to pay a visit to the animals, sit on Santa’s chair and soak in the festive cheer on Dawson Street this Christmas!
Entrance is free, but donations are welcome to the Mansion House Fuel Fund, one of Dublin’s oldest charities.
How to get there:
Take the Luas Green Line to the NEW Dawson Street stop and it’s just a short walk to the Crib. If you don’t fancy the hassle of bringing the car into town, there is loads of parking in Luas Park + Ride serving both Green and Red lines.
