Bring your pampered pooches and furry felines-Santa’s grotto doors are opening for all your four-legged friends, and with a special gift for every pet, he’s sure to set tails wagging!

Families are charged €5 per pet to have a photo with Santa and receive a small gift. No booking is necessary and all proceeds from this one-off event will be donated to Teac Tom, which provides counselling & support to adults, children & groups that have been bereaved by suicide.
