Woodland Santa Experience at Castlecomer Discovery Park
For a truly authentic, family Christmas experience, that’s local and great value, the NEW rediscovered Castlecomer Discovery Park is definitely one for the ‘nice’ list this year.
Located just over 90 minutes south of Dublin, the Castlecomer Christmas Experience in Kilkenny is a treat for the entire family, and the ultimate way to kick start Christmas feels. Castlecomer Discovery Park has completely reimagined their Christmas Experience that’s bound to bring out the kid in everyone. With a jam packed day immersed with magic and festive cheer, and a woodland that’s totally transformed into a Christmas Village, it offers much more than a visit to Santa Clause, and is guaranteed to make memories that last a lifetime. First stop is the excitement of a magical, rambling train ride through the winter wonderland on board The Santa Express! With snow tipped trees, twinkling lights and lots of other wild delights deep into the forest, the entire family will be mesmerised before reaching Santa’s Village! A stop to meet Santa’s Elves is a must, who are busy preparing themselves for the most magical time of year in their arts and crafts igloo. Soak up the festive feels in the enchanted Elf Village with workshops and a woodland play zone whilst parents and grandparents can sit back under the woodland canopy and enjoy complimentary refreshments or mulled wine. No visit is complete without fireside stories from Mrs. Claus in her gigantic igloo home to hear tales and stories of her life with Santa and the elves in Lapland. Finally, it’s off to Santa’s igloo, where every family will spend special one on one time with the jolly man himself and receive a memorable gift. Ticket prices are €17.00 per child and €12.00 per adult; (Babies 0 -12 months can go FREE, without a present.)
