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.
