Several famous Dublin landmarks are being lit up for the Christmas season, as part of the 'Winter Lights Dublin City' project.

The concept is to illuminate the city in 13 locations for 30 nights using customised projections.

Dublin City Council says it gives families lots of opportunities to see and experience the lights at a time and day that suits them.

The lights envelop their landmarks in a festive theme between sunset and 2.00am each night.

There are also enhanced Christmas lights are on the Samuel Beckett Bridge, Millennium Bridge, O'Connell Street and Parliament Street.

The lights are eco-friendly and the technology for some of the projections uses lights that consume 80% less power than their traditional predecessors.
