The popular Belfast Christmas Market returns to Belfast City Hall and offers an authentic feast of quality Christmas international cuisine alongside a carefully curated mix of handcrafted goods and bespoke artisan products.

Set against the spectacular backdrop of Belfast City Hall, Belfast Christmas Market in the heart of the city is the perfect pit stop for coach parties, day-trippers and city shoppers, offering a unique and exciting festive experience

If culinary delights are a passion, enjoy a warming mug of hot Glühwein, feast on a hog roast, indulge in some mouth-watering Belgian chocolates, baklava, crepes and specialty cheeses, or savour the delicate flavours of meats from across the continent, all in an atmosphere overflowing with Christmas cheer. Local producers make up over 40% of the market, selling a variety of tasty treats and products: lobster burgers from celebrated local restauranteurs Mourne Seafood, men's grooming products from the quirky Belfast Beard Company and even ice-cream from the famous North Belfast family run company Rossi's.

Experience the outdoor food court and indulge in a spot of people watching, or enjoy the Continental Bar and Lavery's traditional Irish Bar where you can hear some great live music.

Bring the children to visit Santa in his magical grotto and support a local charity. After meeting the big man, why not take a ride on the vintage carousel, or get a birds eye view of the market from the top of the helter skelter?

The grotto will be open Monday to Wednesday 15:00 – 18:00, Thursday to Friday 14:00 – 19:00, Saturday 11:00 to 19:00 and Sunday 12:00 to 18:00.

And if you post Santa a letter (in his post box in the grounds of the Belfast Christmas Market) by Tuesday 18th December, you'll receive a letter back from him.

Access to City Hall for tours, exhibition, registrar and general business before the market opening times is through the back gate only - located to the rear of the building on Donegall Square South.
