Is This The Most Christmassy House In Ireland?!

Megan Cassidy

‘Christmas light tours’ have basically become a festive tradition in Ireland. 

And by ‘Christmas light tours’ we mean the whole fam bundling into the car with hot chocs and driving around housing estates for a gawk.  

Maybe it’s just ’cause we’re nosy and we finally have an excuse to peer in peoples’ gardens… Or maybe it’s because Christmas decorations around the country are getting more and more outrageously extravagant as the years go by. 

Testament to the latter is the this Wexford home, which has been transformed by the Fitzpatricks into an absolute Winter Wonderland. 

It’s so dazzling, that it’s actually difficult to find the house!
