The countdown to Christmas has officially begun now that the famous Grafton Street Christmas lights have been switched on.
Thousands of adults and children gathered to watch the lights switch on this evening.
X Factor’s Melanie McCabe was the guest of honour and she was joined by members of Dublin’s All-Ireland winning team. The Hallelujah gospel choir were also on hand to sing Christmas carols to the large crowd in the cold evening.
It may only be mid-November but the beautiful lights are sure to add some Christmas magic to your trip to Grafton Street.
