Scrypt Café Bar and Triskel are hosting a 2-day Christmas Craft Market on the weekend of 29 November to complement the opening of Glow in Bishop Lucey Park next door. The market will be on 6–9pm on Friday 29 November and 2–5pm on Saturday 30 November.
Triskel Christmas Market will showcase local artists and crafts people, including artists, jewellery makers, candle makers and a soap maker. There will also be plenty of handmade Christmas gift ideas, such as cushion covers, Christmas decorations, skincare products and trinkets galore, as well as local artisan food and hot drinks available.
“This is a great way to promote Green Friday, which is all about supporting local artists and craft makers on Black Friday, and pick up some different and interesting gifts for your loved ones,” said Rose McKenna of Scrypt Café Bar. “What better way to spend a few hours on a weekend in the run up to Christmas than in a beautiful setting with a great Christmassy ambience with a hot port/whiskey/chocolate in hand and maybe even a few mince pies.”
This is a family-friendly event but grown-ups might like to know that Scrypt Café will also be running a Cocktail Night in the adjoining bar where you can sip fancy cocktails till late.
Here are the vendors who’ll be part of our Christmas Craft Market:
Live Our Values Eco alternatives like vegan deodorant, bamboo tooth brush, punny bags and much more.

Who are the three people at your dream dinner party? Why? To my dream dinner party, I would invite my boyfriend Eoin (he’s always a great motivator!) together with Sabine and Cian – with them you have a perfect party for sure! Emotional, intense and also super funny.
How do you get ready for a concert? The day of a concert, normally I try to not get up too early but early enough to have time to practice calmly and take care of myself to feel the best when I’m on stage. I don’t do anything completely different from normal days, just I try to stay more focused.
When you see a harp, you think ‘classical music’. But Alina Bzhezhinska turns that thought on its ear!
She brings a new perspective to this supposedly dainty instrument, taking the groundbreaking work of Alice Coltrane in the 1960s as a stepping-off point for her own flighty improvisations and sonic adventures. Capable of high-octane lapel-grabbing statements, she can also create extraordinary lyricism and soul within her own compositions, and this versatility and curiosity has marked her out as a pioneer in the field of Jazz Harp.
Alina will be here with her Quartet on Thursday 6 February. Tickets are €20/€18 and are on sale now. Book now to make sure you experience this special musical event.
We’ll be learning about the true meaning of Christmas with the Muppets and George Bailey from Sunday 15 December, while we’ll watch John McClane throw Hans Gruber from the Nakatomi Building from Friday 19th. (There are just three chances to catch Die Hard on the big screen so pre-book to avoid disappointment.)
We look forward to seeing you all here.
(And we have another Christmas-themed movie in December – we’re showing Gremlins for one night only on Thursday 12th).
Triskel will host the launch of the brand new album by Cork’s own John Blek on Saturday 7 March. John Creedon on RTÉ said, “His talent is shining brighter with every album.” while The Thin Air called him “a master of subtlety in realms of folk-informed pop”.
Tickets are €17 and on sale now – book now and don’t miss out!
Anyone who was at the Stevie Nicks Experience concert in Triskel in April will remember great music, dancing in the aisles and the most authentic tribute to the music of Fleetwood Mac & Stevie Nicks you will ever see. And they’re coming back for a Christmas special!
They’re here on Friday 13 December and tickets are €27.
Book your tickets now & experience the magic of Stevie Nicks & Fleetwood Mac that can only be brought to you by StandBack The Stevie Nicks Experience.
