santas cove

Santa’s Cove Dublin

We are very excited to announce that Santa’s Cove is coming to Liffey Valley!

The experience will be over 4,000 square feet and the website for Ireland’s ultimate Christmas event. Families will have to traverse through ‘Yuletide Valley’ to earn their place on Santa’s sleigh where the children will take the reins and treat their parents to a trip in the sky… YES, we did say in the sky!
You’ll make magic reindeer food in the ‘Stable Rooms’ and Christmas decorations in the ‘Toy Room’. Mrs. Claus will be on hand to serve hot chocolate and treats to everyone, before the children take a seat on the world’s first ‘Naughty Or Nice Machine’.
The machine comes to life when the candy cane lever is pulled and the antler helmet placed just above the child’s head. The machine will magically read the child’s thoughts to a symphony of bells, whistles and noises. A ‘Nice’ result means the machine will reward you with candy, redemption tickets PLUS a special ‘Nice Certificate’ which you can give to Santa when you meet him on your private family visit.

LIMITED AVAILABILITY
Book now to avoid disappointment. This will undoubtedly be Ireland’s Best Santa Experience

Take a magical trip on The Forest Train Wicklow to visit Santa and his hardworking (and some not so hardworking) elves in his workshop, deep in the forest. Santa and his Elves are delighted to be back in Avondale Forest Park this Christmas.

Experience the winter wonderland as The Forest Train rambles through the breath-taking mature forest park. Keep an eye out for Noodle the lazy Elf who is running late for work! Stop off at his house and see if you can help the other elves wake him up. But, please don’t let Santa know.

When the train reaches its secret destination deep in the forest, Noodle will lead all the families into the workshop. The elves are waiting to meet all the children and there will be plenty of fun, songs and dancing while you wait to see Santa.

From his office, overlooking the workshop floor, each family will be called to see Santa individually.

Santa is working away in his office , he is checking his big book and you better watch out; he knows something about everyone, young and old! After meeting Santa every child will receive a wooden themed gift and can get a special photo taken with the big man in red.

After your Santa visit, there will be lots to do in the magnificent Christmas Barn.  There will be a very special story-time, taking place each hour.  The Barn will have a seated area where beverages and refreshments will be available.

There will be a carnival theme in The Barn with carnival stalls to prove your skills. We are very excited to say the Electric Zoo animals will be back to join the festive and fun atmosphere for all to enjoy.
