With the holidays right around the corner, the Dún Laoghaire Town business community is simultaneously gearing up for the busy festive season and also winding down programmes in preparation for the new year. This month, we’re talking about:
- Business Events in Dún Laoghaire Town in November/December
- How to Promote Your Christmas Events and Deals on DunLaoghaireTown.ie
To make it easier to get the most from the holiday season for your business we have included an outline on how to market your offerings on the new Dún Laoghaire Town website. Supported by DLR County Council and Bank of Ireland the new website gives you the ability to market any events or deals you are providing this Christmas to a much bigger audience.
In terms of networking events this winter, to help you sift through your calendar we have organised a complete list of the business events from our town that you need to know about before you sit down for dinner on December 25th.

DunLaoghaireTown.ie website is run on a not-for-profit basis. It acts as a digital channel to promote the town, local businesses and the broader community. To do so, the website provides a range of free services available to all.
This month, we want to show you how your business can use our platform to share relevant news, events and deals with a wider audience.
There are two ways DunLaoghaireTown.ie can help your business grow its sales:
How to market your events to a wider audience
Are you participating in the DLBA Ladies Night Out event on November 28 or joining in on the DLR CoCo Christmas Festival with an event in your premises?
We encourage you to use the DunLaoghaireTown.ie Event calendar to promote your event to an audience of thousands. The best part: it’s free!
We use a simple form to captures all the details that DunLaoghaireTown.ie needs to add it to the town’s event listing and promote it on the DunLaoghaireTown.ie social media networks. The only requirement is that the event is taking place within Dún Laoghaire Town.
How to market your deals to a wider audience
Do you have a fantastic deal for the Christmas period that your customers just shouldn’t miss?
Are you participating in the DLBA Ladies Night themed event or the DLR CoCo Christmas Festival with a promotion or deal?
You can use the DunLaoghaireTown.ie Deals Page to promote your deal to a much wider audience. It’s free, and you can upload it yourself in only a few minutes!
One simple form captures all the details that DunLaoghaireTown.ie needs to add it to the town’s DEALS listing and promote it on the DunLaoghaireTown.ie social media networks. The only thing we ask is that the deal is available from a business located within Dún Laoghaire Town.
That’s a Wrap for 2019!
That’s it from us for 2019! We wish you a prosperous holiday period and a well-earned rest at the end of the year. Remember, we’re not just here for Christmas! You can promote your local business on DunLaoghaireTown.ie all year round.
