Visit Santa & his real live deer Dancer & Prancer at Ireland’s Lapland, Glendeer Pet Farm Roscommon
Reopening Sat 2nd Dec – 23rd Dec 2017.
Its not everyday that you arrive at a farm decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, meet Santa & his deer Dancer & Prancer or see a crib with a live cow & donkey, except of course when you visit Ireland’s Lapland at Glendeer Pet Farm. Glendeer Pet Farm, which is located just outside Athlone off the M6 (Tuam/Monksland Exit 13, follow Drum signs) has all facilities undercover.
Ireland’s Lapland has something for everyone, young & old alike. The children get their little bag of food to feed the animals as they make their way over to see Santa, have a chat with him & receive a gift & adults can treat themselves to fresh coffee/cappucino & homemade snacks in the warm surroundings of the cosy coffee shop.
Glendeer is transformed into Ireland’s Lapland for the month of December, starting with Santa’s arrival by horse drawn sleigh @ 5pm on Sat 2nd Dec. He is here everyday from the 2nd – 23rd of December with his deer Dancer and Prancer.
Reflect at the crib with a live cow and donkey, soak up the magical, festive atmosphere surrounded by thousands of twinkling lights & lots of Christmas scenes including our winter wonderland.
Children get to pet & feed all the animals, but don’t forget to wrap up warm as it might even snow!!! And most importantly children will visit Santa & get a gift, so don’t forget your camera!
Ireland’s Lapland Opening Hours:
Monday – Friday: 4pm – 7pm & Saturday – Sunday: 3pm – 7pm
Cost: Adults €8 and children €16 (includes visit to Santa). Children under 18 months are free unless they want to visit Santa and get a gift, then there is a charge of €8.
Group bookings during the day by appointment, special rates available!
There is no need to pre-book tickets, they can be purchased on arrival. It is a queuing sytem for Santa, but it moves quite quickly & children can feed the animals while they wait. No one will be turned away!
There is lots of fun to be had in the indoor soft play toddler area and follow the trail through the Winter Wonderland to the secret sand pit.
