DublinTown Christmas Lights Switch On At Bewley’s Grafton Street

It’s beginning to look a lot like the festive season following the big switch on of the stunning Grafton Street Christmas lights at Bewley’s Grafton Street on Thursday November 16th.

Erected by city centre business group Dublin Town, they were turned on by Little Blue Heroes Foundation representatives Willow Mae Carroll, seven, from Kells, Co Meath, and Cian Byrne, 10, from Finglas West, Dublin, who pushed the magic button.

The Foundation is a Garda charity supporting families of children with serious illnesses, while empowering the lives of young people through positive community engagement.

With only 34 days remaining to December 25, the switching on of the spectacular Grafton Street chandeliers, precedes the turning on of lights at Henry Street, South William Street, Capel Street and throughout the city centre.

In total, Dublin Town, which has been decorating the city centre at Christmas on behalf of businesses for 15 years, will provide energy-efficient Christmas lights across 25 streets in the city centre this year.

It takes 30 people, working through the night over four weeks, to erect the lights. All lighting used is low-energy LED, regulated by time clocks. The Grafton Street display uses one third of the electricity of a domestic shower. Every single bulb and fixture is tested by Dublin Town’s lighting contractor in advance of going up.

Bewley’s Grafton Street is delighted to partner with DublinTown as the venue for the Christmas Lights switch on and hope everyone gets to enjoy the sparkle over the upcoming festive season.
