Clerys through the ages: Our favourite Christmas displays are back

The Clerys Christmas Windows are back!

Because it just wouldn’t be Christmas without the beloved department store’s magical displays.

The store is located in the heart of Dublin on O’Connell street and is getting the whole city into the holiday spirit.

Customers were a bit sceptical if Clerys would carry on their festive legacy since undergoing new ownership in October.

However, our worries have quickly been put to rest at the displays’ recent unveiling.

Clerys was bought by a partnership between Oakmount and Core Capital, and real estate investment managers, Europa Capital.

Derek McGrath from Core Capital said: "The re-development of Clerys is a fantastic project and we are excited about the future of the iconic property and its unique and historic location.

"We are receiving fantastic feedback from potential domestic and international tenants and expect to be on site, commencing construction works in early 2019.

“We look forward to restoring Clerys to its place as a landmark attraction in Dublin and we recognise and respect the history of the building over the past 165 years.

"Bringing back the Christmas windows is just the beginning."

The classic holiday displays feature ‘Clerys Through the Ages’, capturing the evolution of Christmas over decades of traditions.
