Wrap up the kids and leave your cares behind as we invite you to re-awaken the magic of Christmas against the beautiful background of Katie’s Claddagh Cottage, Galway. We have teamed up with them to give away a family ticket to visit Santa!
Galway has a brand new, outdoor, safe, socially-distanced Santa Experience guaranteed to restore Christmas cheer!
The historic outdoor courtyard through the arch of Áras na nGael on Dominic St has been transformed into a magical winter wonderland in preparation for the arrival of Santa AKA Daidí na Nollag on Thursday December 10th.
Not only is Santa able to fly around the world in a single night, but he is also a master of every language in the world, especially Irish and while he is in his temporary home on Dominic St, he is very much looking forward to chatting either as Gaeilge nó as Béarla to the children of Galway.
Family groups will be guided on a magical journey via a giant bauble, to a Christmas tree forest, home to a fairytale gingerbread house, which leads to Santa’s cabin, with fun and games with the elves along the way – try out your skill at catching a reindeer! Once the whole family has had a chat and taken their family photo and received a gift from Santa, they can warm up afterwards with seasonal hot drinks.
Starting December 10th, tickets are on sale now for €15.00 for Children and €8.00 for adults (off peak – Thursdays & Fridays) & €15.00 at peak times (Sat & Sun), infants go free from www.christmascrackers.ie.
Please note that tickets MUST be purchased in advance for a specific time slot.
This experience runs within current COVID 19 regulations and is operated in a family group system which ensures that groups do not intermingle. Staff and guests (aged 13 and over) wear face coverings. Hand sanitiser is provided and queuing is minimised. Contact tracing is assured and social distancing is built in, yes, even with Santa!
Off-peak hours for those with vulnerabilities and/or additional sensory requirements are available by direct appointment. You can call 091 394396.
