NOTE: 2021 details TBC

Have you ever wondered what it takes to become one of Santa’s trusty elves? Why not find out at The Elves in Training Santa Experience at Croke Park from end November onwards.

Each child gets to take part in Elf Training with Santa and his helpers in the specially designed elf camp at the GAA HQ. Every ‘elf’ will become a member of the North Pole Football, Hurling & Camogie Club, managed by Santa!

Each member of his elite Elf Squad visits the mesmerising snow tunnel, the North Pole team changing rooms. While you’re there make sure you listen for banter in the shower room to see who’s made it to the naughty or nice list! You might also need to hold your nose as you leave the dressing room, as the trainee Elves’ don’t usually listen to Mrs Claus when she tells them to pick up their dirty gear!

One of the highlights of the magical trail is a visit to Santa’s Bainisteoir’s office, the heart of all the action, where Santa reviews tactics and selects his dream team for the big journey on Christmas Eve.

After this meet and greet with Santa, where every child will receive a gift and get their professional photo taken, your family can run out pitch-side, like their GAA heroes, and take their own Croke Park ‘Elfies’, making even more magical memories.

You will then get complimentary admission to the GAA Museum, where you can discover two floors of interactive exhibits. Marvel at the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy cups and test your hurling and football skills in the museum’s Interactive Games Zone!
