A Magical Christmas Experience
Visiting Santa is one of the main highlights of every child’s year so where better to visit the main man himself than at the stunning Bunratty Castle & Folk Park. Watch your child’s face light up as Bunratty Castle & Folk Park turns into a festive wonderland with an impressive and special Christmas lights trail throughout the park.
There is so much for all the family to enjoy. Take a family trip on the Polar Express Train, watch as the kids fall over with laughter at the fabulous puppet show, enjoy festive games and fun in the playground, meet all the wonderful Christmas characters along the way including Mrs Claus and check out Pa’s Pet farm to seek out all your favourite farm friends. Of course all this builds up the main event where you and your children can meet the very important Santa Claus in Santa’s Grotto.
During your visit this festive season make sure to explore Bunratty Castle itself, the most authentic medieval fortress in Ireland, stroll around the park, visiting the various houses along the way, walk the charming village streets and meet the colourful village characters who will enthral you with tales, explore the gardens and enjoy the fairy trail. There is something for all ages to enjoy and appreciate.
