Visit Santa in Bunratty Castle & Folk Park
For many people the visit to Santa Claus is tied to happy childhood memories. You might remember your wonder and awe of the North Pole, your nervous hopes on Christmas Eve that he'd make it to your chimney and the pure joy of Christmas morning. It's natural to want to share that magical experience with your children.
This is an event for all the family visiting Santa Claus & his Elves in his Grotto. They can also call in to see Mrs. Claus in her Kitchen as she prepares for Santa's trip - making sure his clothes are ironed and he has plenty of food for his journey. There will be an opportunity to listen to the Folk Park story teller as he recalls colourful tales of Christmas long ago. A complimentary glass of mulled wine and mince pies awaits adults in Corry’s Pub. The village street will be decked with holly, and festooned with fairy lights, and the village Christmas tree will be adorned for the occasion. The young and not so young will be treated to a puppet show and they can join in the fun by chatting to the surprise Christmas Characters who will be wandering the village street, you might even bump into Scrooge, the Charles Dickens classic character, during your visit. Christmas themed shops selling Christmas fare will ensure that visitors can get in a bit of last minute shopping!
