Visit Santa at Castlecomer Discovery Park 2017

Discover a magical woodland Christmas at Castlecomer Discovery Park!

All aboard for the Santa Express! Santa, Mrs. Claus and the Elves are waiting, so arrive on time to collect your tickets and be waiting at the Santa Express Train Station. Hop on board The Santa Express and make your way to Santa’s magical Christmas Village in the heart of Castlecomer Discovery Park’s woodland.


The Santa Express will take you on an enchanted journey to the heart of the elf village.  Wrap up warm because the elves will want to spend some time with you. Join in the Elf Art Workshops before getting to see the man himself, the elves love to see new creations from children as they plan and make billions of Christmas toys and decorations for the festive season.


ReindeerGrown-ups, you better dress warm too, because although you will be treated to warm refreshments, you are in a magical winter wonderland after all!

Santa is waiting to meet all the boys and girls, but he can’t do that without making sure Mrs. Claus has had a chance to double double check that famous list.  She knows that Santa is eating so many biscuits, and she says he has to go on a diet, but she says she will wait till after Christmas for that. For now, she wants to tell all the little boys and girls about what life is like for the Clauses, and how it’s so much fun taking care of so many mischievous elves. They are always playing tricks on her!

He has lots of stories to tell about his reindeer, especially Rudolf.  It’s a good job he has a red nose because he is always getting lost!

Of course, every family will have a special moment with Santa to tell him the presents they wish for this year. Children can bring their letters too, which will be carefully placed in Santa’s ginormous bag of letters from all over the world. Before they leave Santa, he will give every child a gift on the day while they wait his return on Christmas Night.

After visiting Santa, you can spend as much time as you wish exploring the enchanted Christmas Village before taking the Santa Express back to the station.
