A delightful experience awaits you each Christmas Season at 42 Parnell Square (opposite the Rotunda Hospital ).The Moving Crib brings us back to simpler times and has fascinated generations of children from Dublin and all over Ireland for more than half a century.

The Moving Crib is a Nativity Play told through handcrafted moving figures and beautifully painted sets that begins with Adam and Eve and goes through all the key moments in the Bible finishing after the crib scene, with the young Jesus teaching the Doctors in the Temple.

The Media has described it as ‘the best free show for children over the festive period’, and ‘one of the nicest sights in Dublin’.
