Daily from 4pm at the Village, families can interact with the Enchanted Lights experience, which is entirely complimentary. Thousands of LED lights make the Village sparkle, and interactive projection mapping instalments allow kids and adults control the atmosphere via a touchscreen.

Bursting with bright neonic colours, bold geometric shapes and striking street-style fashion silhouettes inspired by iconic Asian cityscapes, this feast for the eyes, ears and feels is running until February 2.

Enchanted Lights is the largest installation of its kind in Ireland. Created by Dublin-based creative production agency Algorithm in partnership with the Kildare Village creative team, the fully interactive display stretches from the Village’s Grey Abbey lawn right onto the store buildings themselves.

Children are invited to control the LED touchscreen, which alters the display of white lights on the grass. The brightly lit Geometric Tunnel generates sound and visual patterns when it senses someone walking underneath.

Ciara Finn, senior producer with Algorithm, described the ‘wow’ moment the experience is for children when they see the Lights for the first time. “It was an ambitious venture, it’s very rewarding to see children light up when they come in. Children are much more loose in their reactions compared to adults – the kids have no problem exclaiming out loud with their excitement, which is lovely to see.”

The cool kaleidoscopic show is the perfect way to end a family filled day at Ireland’s largest luxury shopping destination.
