The Christmas in Killarney community run festival aims to bring magic to Killarney. The tradition in Killarney is to kick Christmas off with an abundance of Magic with the Big Opening Magical Christmas Parade. The main parade takes place during the end of November and mini parades usually take place throughout December.

The main parade travels through the town with numerous floats, Disney characters, local schoolchildren and of course Santa himself makes an appearance as well. The sense of anticipation in the young children’s faces is worth the wait for the parade to run its course through the town. The first of the parades also marks the official switching on of the Christmas lights – another highlight for those with younger children.

Christmas in Killarney presents one of the most exclusive Christmas experiences with The Christmas in Killarney Parade and Festival and the turning on of the Christmas lights – The best way to start your Christmas season!
