No1 Pery Square Hotel and Spa in Limerick's historic Georgian area is
set to host a unique market with picturesque stalls offering traditional
handcrafted gifts including jewellery, toys, Christmas cards, dolls and
candles.

 

Traditional foods, Christmas puddings, meats, sweets, breads, pastries
and other festive goodies will also be on offer complimented by artisan
cuisine and organic produce from Slow Food Limerick.

 

A truly continental atmosphere will be conjured up by the lights, sounds
and smells of this unique spectacle while children from St Michael's
School will sing traditional Christmas carols to add to the occasion. 

 

The Limerick Georgian Quarter Christmas Market will be open from
3.30pm-7pm on Friday November 20th and between 12-5pm on Saturday and

It is organised by No1 Pery Square Hotel and Spa, supported by Shannon
Development and in association with Slow Food Limerick.

Ireland's first Georgian themed market," said Patricia Roberts,
proprietor, No.1 Pery Square Hotel and Spa.  "Our Christmas market will
