Just a 90-minute drive south of Dublin, the Kilkenny based discovery park is renowned for their dedication to creating a world festooned with seasonal cheer, with decorative lighting and effortless style to create a truly memorable festive encounter. This season it is expected to be even bigger and brighter with hundreds of new light installations planned in 2018 to crank up the festive factor.
Start your adventure at the North Pole Station and take a rambling train ride through the incredibly enchanted woodlands on board the Santa Express, where the twinkling light displays amongst the trees is a sight for sore eyes.
Once you reach the Christmas Village, you’ll have time to explore, make a Christmas tree decoration in the arts and crafts area or sit back and wrap your mittens around a steaming mug of hot chocolate from the Canopy Café. Children can also play at leisure in the elf and fairy village, where imaginative playgrounds feature bouncing nets and a Junior Woodland Adventure Course.
The igloos are cosy and warm and full of festive spirit and it’s here that children will meet Mrs Claus to hear tales of mischievous elves and life in the North Pole.
Last but not least, it’s time to visit the great man himself, where each child will have the opportunity to spend time alone with Santa Claus, to whisper their wish list into his ear, and to receive a memorable gift.
