O'Neills Flowers is the place to be this festive season

WITH a fantastic array of Christmas events to please both young and old O’Neills Flowers in Willville is the place to be this Christmas. From Santa and this reindeer to Christmas Workshops and markets for Manager Gearoid it’s the busiest time of the year.

“O’Neill’s is a buzzing exciting environment at Christmas, certainly our busiest time of year. Myself, Gerry and the team work hard all year round planning the events that take place and look forward to welcoming young and old to Willville, be it for wreath making, to see Santa, for a Christmas Tree or an arrangement for a loved ones grave”.

“We’re doing several wreath making classes, on the 3rd and 10th of Dec. Our expert florists will show and help you to make a beautiful door hanging wreath. Classes are at 2 pm each day and each class will last approx. 2 – 2.5 hours. Booking is essential’.

“Last years’ workshop was a great success, we had over 50 people over the 2 weekends and everyone left extremely happy! This year due to demand we have doubled the amount of classes we were running”.

O’Neills Flowers is also looking forward to the arrival of Santa Claus on his annual visit to see their Christmas Glass Houses,

“Then on the 11th of Dec Santa is coming to Willville, to his very own grotto! We shall also be having an indoor market packed with local producers. Santa comes to our Glasshouses in Willville every year, the only glasshouse that Santa visits’.

“The Children get to visit Santa and get a present and can get their photo taken with him. We’ll have a range of local farm animals on display and weather permitting Santa says he’ll take along a few reindeers! A visit Santa is E5 per child or E15 for a family ticket. Booking is required on 0429376977’.

“And for the adults our Christmas Market will also take place on the 11th of December 1pm- 5pm. We will have an array of over 20 stalls, all stocking local produce. An event not to be missed for Christmas Shopping! There will be Cheese, Fish, Chocolates, Gift Hampers, Flowers, Art pieces and much more!”

For those who cannot wait until then to visit, Chrismas has already begun in Willville!

“Our Christmas shop is now open, stocking a range of Christmas decorations, lights and figures.

“Our Christmas Trees will arrive at the start of December and our large Christmas flower shop will also be open.

“We’ll have a late night opening on Friday 2nd of December to show off our Christmas lights in all their glory! And for any last minute gifts we’ll be open up until Christmas eve at 1pm for all floral bouquets and arrangements”
