What better way to enjoy the magic of Corkmas than with a Starbucks signature hot chocolate and a stroll through the wonderful colourful lighting display in Emmet Place.

Shining a *new* light on the Winter season, Cork City Council invites you to step into a wondrous world of light and sound as you enjoy the buzz in Cork city.

Stroll through this enchanting, otherworldly space, and enjoy watching the lights pulse, fade and flash in time to the strains of music floating through the air. Stand within the installation and let yourself be absorbed by a 360* light show where a canopy of overhead orbs create and diffuse a rainbow of colour in time to the music.

Members of the public can have a go at conducting the illuminations themselves – via a state of the art, interactive touch screen. Sweep your fingertips across the screen and watch the world light up before your very eyes! (No advance booking but subject to availability at the time of your visit)

The SOLAS light and sound experience will run until December 21st, from 4pm to 11pm daily. 

In addition, at weekends starting there will also be a schedule of musical performances from the stage, including Christmas Carols, sing-alongs and other entertainment sure to have broad appeal. See the schedule here: Corkmas Stage at Emmet Place – Cork City Council

SOLAS provides the perfect backdrop for your family day out in the heart of the city – a chance to pause in wonder and let the seasonal spirit illuminate you from within!
