Places To See Santa’s Reindeer And Other Animals Around Ireland
My children always loved going to see animals and when I told them we were getting to visit Santa’s reindeer who were having a rest before their busy Christmas Eve, the excitement was palpable!
Here are some of the places to take kids to see Santa’s reindeer and other animals around Ireland:
Alpacas At Wicklow Christmas Market
Alpacas are a favourite at Wicklow Christmas Market, adored by young and old alike. Alpacas are a softer, somewhat sassier version of the traditional reindeer and they’re sure the put a smile on your face with their antics as they strut and pose like rock stars!
You can visit our furry friends every Saturday & Sunday.
Meet Santa’s Reindeer at Elf Town Galway
Santa and his merry band of elves are looking forward to returning to Galway and meeting all the wonderful boy and girls at Elf Town.
Your journey into Elf Town begins through the Grand Entrance at the Castle gates, where you will meet Glitterpants – Santa’s head Elf – who will get you started on your journey and show you Elf Town’s very own “Elf Town Shuffle”.
During your visit you will also meet Santa’s Reindeer, see Jack Frost’s ice house, the elf postal portal, the LED dance floor with Boogie the Elf, throw snowballs on the Elf Terrace, have a cookie with Mrs Claus, and enjoy a private visit with Santa. Finally, bring the gold coin you receive from Santa to Santa’s Toy Shop and trade it in for the toy of your choice!
Be sure to book your tickets early to avoid disappointment.
