On Christmas Eve, some years ago, as Santa flew over Crag Cave in Castleisland with Rudolph and the reindeer, it started to snow. Fresh snowflakes are one of Santa’s favourite things and watching them fall gently on the sleigh, he got distracted!
Santa accidentally dropped a bottle of magic dust!
It sprinkled all over Crag Cave and now, each December magic fills the air around us. So every year Santa returns to this special place with Rudolph, some of the reindeer and the elves to visit all the boys and girls at his Winter Wonderland in Castleisland, County Kerry.
With a dash of magic dust, our Winter Wonderland experience brings Santa and Rudolph, Santa’s bedroom, the elves’ bedroom, the North Pole post box, polar bears, snow scenes and an animated reindeer ride to all our visitors.
I can’t wait! What will happen during our visit?
Each family will be able to visit Santa on their own in the grotto.
The elves will guide all the children and families through the Winter Wonderland.
Children can enjoy an animated reindeer ride and a complimentary one hour play in our Crazy Cave soft play centre.
Rudolph and some of the other reindeer will be outside enjoying the magic Crag Cave grass!
Santa’s elf will take a photograph of each family and it can be viewed after play time in the Christmas shop and purchased if desired. (Photographs are not included in the Winter Wonderland experience.) However, Santa’s elves are happy to take photographs on your own devices as you make your way through the Winter Wonderland.
P.S. Mrs. Clause has let us know that Santa may be socially distanced this year depending on the pandemic situation in December.
