It looks like a Christkindlsmarkt but it is actually the Christmas market in Galway/Gaillimh, apparently one of the oldest and largest in Ireland. And Poblacht na hÉireann seems to have any number of other neat Christmas markets around the country.
I doubt if people really say Margaí na Nollag, but I'm sure they would if they had completed the Duolingo Irish tree. :D

There's also a big Christmas market in Belfast/Béal Feirste. Imgur

And not to be outdone, Chicago (the city that dyes the river green for St. Patrick's Day/Lá fhéile Pádraig) has just recently started an Irish Christmas Market of its own. No idea how Irish these folks may be, but they're really cute.

    Cork/Corcaigh started an annual Christmas market a few years ago, but it's got a long way to go before it'll compete with Galway's lovely market.

    My seven year old has had his annual go-around on the carousel, though, and once he's had his spin on the ferris wheel, too, we can call it good for another year:
