WIN tickets to Ireland's biggest Christmas festival AND an overnight hotel stay

Brought to you by Winterval.

'Tis the season to be jolly.

Especially if you're in Waterford. Waterford city, to be precise.

Because that is where Christmas is happening this year. At least, that is where Winterval - the biggest Christmas festival in Ireland - is happening. We can't wait.

The festival is MASSIVE and has over 60 free and ticketed events all happening across Waterford city, including the amazing Waterford Eye, a nightly festive light show in Cathedral Square, an incredible installation by Spraoi at Wyse Park, festive train rides, and a horse-drawn sleigh (it's still Ireland, after all).

Running until Sunday, 23 December on select Winterval dates (see their website for details), the city is now a winter wonderland. It's a perfect little Christmas escape for the whole family. Or grab your partner and show off your skills (or hang on for dear life) at Winterval on Ice at the Waterside Car Park.

For a fancy treat for the kids, enjoy breakfast or afternoon tea with the one and only Santa Claus at Enchanted Christmas, Winterval's new Santa experience at the Old Postal Sorting Centre. Or, for the adults, take a cocktail masterclass where you'll learn how to make your favourite classics, as well as some delicious Christmassy concoctions.

There's so much going on at Winterval, Ireland's Christmas Capital, this year and if you're any sort of a Christmas fan you'd be mad to miss it.

To help ensure that you do NOT miss it, we have a golden ticket book to Winterval to give away (yes, we're Willy Wonka), which has free family passes to some of the festival's best events. PLUS included is a swanky overnight stay, on 15 December, in a lodge at the luxurious Waterford Castle & Golf Resort. This enchanted 310-acre private island in Ireland's Ancient East can only be accessed by private car ferry.

To be in with a chance of winning this wonderful Christmas getaway, just fill out the form below.

We hope to see you there, fellow festive-fans.

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED.
