Family Fun Tip

Don’t forget to wear thick socks and a pair of gloves and please ensure that your boots are tight with the laces securely fastened! Avoid going for a bigger size than you normally wear.

Ice skating is a fun and enjoyable activity around Christmas time for the entire family but it does present some risks, especially for inexperienced skaters. Ice Marshals are present on the rink at all times during all sessions and you are required to adhere to our safe-skating guidelines.


The Fossett family is delighted to be able to say that we have been entertaining the Irish public for a very long time. (Next year is our 130th anniversary.) We KNOW how to ensure that our audiences have a great time. We’ve been doing this since 1888!

For the past 12 years we have presented our magical Christmas Circus in Dublin and last year, in association with South Dublin County Council, we moved our Festive show to Tallaght Stadium. Over 50,000 people came to see us and we welcomed groups and families from all over South Dublin and beyond. The feedback we received from the families and organisations/groups who attended was amazing and heartwarming. It was a great success and we are thrilled to return again this year.

This year we will again present a fun-filled, magical 2 hour seasonal show guaranteed to thrill and amaze you. Jugglers, aerialists, acrobats, magicians, knife throwers and clowns are just some performers waiting to entertain you when you join us under our fully heated Big Top.

We open on Thursday 14th December and will run until Sunday 7th January and we look forward to welcoming families and groups from all over South Dublin here at Tallaght Stadium this Christmas.
