The Moving Crib

The Moving Crib, celebrating the true meaning of Christmas!

The Moving Crib at St Martin Apostolate, is the only one of its kind, a charming and entertaining experience that winds its way downstairs in this wonderful Georgian building in Parnell Square.
It has fascinated generations of parents, their children and grandchildren for over 60 years now and is still attracting the crowds. Last year they welcomed over 23,000 visitors, and look forward to even more visitors again this year.

Admission: FREE (Donations welcome for the upkeep of our wonderful & historic Moving Crib).
OPEN: From Tuesday 28th of November 2019 to Sunday 5th of January 2020 (7 days a week)
Times: 11:00 – 18:00 Daily

The Moving Crib is a godsend to parents concerned with teaching their children about the birth of Christ. The real meaning of Christmas is conveyed in an unforgettable and fascinating manner. It also captures the joy and spirit of the season with a magical atmosphere that all the family will love. They have competitions, Dress Up selfies, an illusion wall and a fascinating Dolls’ House. Children are encouraged to create their own leaf for the tree in the Garden of Eden.

Why not come and take some time out while immersing yourself in the beauty and wonder of “The Greatest Story Ever Told”.
