Live Animal Crib
Established in 1956 by Fr. Louis Coffey, the Moving Crib at the Mansion House has now entertained generations of Dubliners and visitors alike.
The Live Crib consists of a traditional nativity scene set among live animals in a specially constructed, life size stable. The animals are brought to the crib every morning and are returned to a farm on the south of the city in the evening.
Although admission is free, the public may contribute if they so wish.
