Visit Santa Clause at Slieve Aughty Centre

Every year, Santa plans a stop at Slieve Aughty Centre, Loughrea, where he enjoys a soft chair next to a cosy fire in his cabin while he visits with children from around the country. Each family gets scheduled personal time with Santa and a small gift.

Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays December 1st-23rd, 4-7 pm Fridays and 12-6pm Saturdays, Sundays

Before and/or after your Santa visit there are lots of other things to do. Pet Santa’s “pony” reindeer and the donkeys at the live nativity, browse the Christmas Shop, chat with other families over a cup of hot chocolate and home-made pancakes, and enjoy the festive music. The kids can make some crafts, get their faces painted, and meet a friendly polar bear while waiting for storytelling (all included in your entry cost!).

Save some room for home-made treats and organic mulled wine at The Three Tower Organic Kitchen, open all day.

Slieve Aughty Centre’s Christmas Festival offers something new and different, with live characters, storytelling, arts and crafts, shows, animals, the Snow Queen and more. You never know who will be visiting or what surprises are in store. What Slieve Aughty do promise is that you will experience a Christmas Festival like no other with a family feel.
