Illuminating the magic of Dublin
After a successful first year, Dublin City Council’s Winter Lights return to illuminate the magic of Dublin this December. Every evening, from sunset to 2AM, the city will be transformed, with custom projections and lighting displays.
Projections will illuminate the facades of buildings including City Hall, The Civic Offices, The Custom House, The GPO, The Hugh Lane, The Mansion House, Covanta Dublin Waste to Energy Plant at Poolbeg and Trinity College. Glistening seasonal lighting will be installed at O’Connell Street, Millennium Bridge, Parliament Street, Samuel Beckett Bridge.
Two new locations have also been added to the festivities this year, with Christ Church Cathedral and Smithfield Square set to receive a merry makeover. Projection mapping specialists, Lightscape have been chosen to create the first projections for Christ Church Cathedral. On New Year’s Eve the display will transform from a 2D animation into a 3D spectacle, just in time to ring in the New Year.
