Santa will be returning to Dunsandle Castle, Kiltullagh, this December, along with Mrs Claus and their elves for Santa’s Castle 2011. This event, now in its third year, is gaining a reputation as one of Galway’s leading Christmas events.
Santa’s Castle is a fun experience for all the family, where both young and old can revel in the magic of Christmas. Ninety minutes of seasonal adventure begins when you and your family are greeted by the woodland elves, who lead you on a torch-lit procession through the atmospheric castle woods. When you arrive at the castle you are welcomed into Mrs Claus’s kitchen where there are songs, stories, and treats, before ascending the 15th century medieval spiral staircase to Santa’s great hall. Each child has a personalised visit with Father Christmas, and also receives an educational gift. The tour culminates with a trip to Santa’s workshop, where children can create their own Christmas cards and decorations with the help of Santa’s elves.
Admission to this wonderful family event is €27 per child and €11 per adult, while entrance for babies is free. Santa’s Castle supports the local community by donating a portion of each admission to Galway Simon Community.
This is a booking only event and can be booked online at www.santascastle.ie or by calling Santa’s Castle on (091 ) 503865, Monday to Friday, 9pm to 5pm.
