Butler House Christmas Garden

The Garden transforms at dusk as light installations come to life. Kids will love the toy soldiers, reindeer and the frosty winter pond at the heart of the garden complete with the Butler House Express miniature Train. Take an “Elfie” with friends in Santa’s sleigh or meet the big man himself in his outdoor grotto. The Glittering trees will lead you to the Christmas Post Office where you will find Santa has left a magic post-box for all his letters that will go straight to the north pole. So, come visit this unique destination in the secluded walled garden, enjoy festive fare, music and take some time away from the crowds to soak up a magical Christmas atmosphere in the very heart of Kilkenny.

The Indoor Christmas Craft Fair is open every Saturday and Sunday between 12 and 6 p.m. There will be lots of lovely unique gift ideas to choose from, including jewellery, fashion, art and lots more.
