Swords on Ice

Swords Pavilions Christmas Quarter offers families the chance to do something more fun than just wait in line. For the first time we are absolutely thrilled that Swords on Ice are here in the centre and they will be in the Christmas Quarter also. The crisp white, real ice rink, will provide you with that true skating experience. So, soak up the Christmas atmosphere whether you’re on the rink or watching on from the festive viewing deck. There's something for everyone, from families and school children to teens and social groups or why not plan that romantic date night on ice! The perfect way to get you in the festive spirit. Both rinks will give visits the opportunity to skate into the New Year. Don’t miss out, get your skates on and BOOK NOW!! Swords- www.swordsonice.ie
