A MAGICAL EVENT... LIKE NO OTHER
Located just off exit 8 on the N7 and a 15-minute drive from Dublin, Santa’s House Express is the best place to visit Santa this Christmas 2022! The experience begins when you are greeted by twinkling lights at the North gates of Palmerstown House Estate.
This year we are combining the best of both our traditional and drive-thru experience. The 2022 show is designed to surprise and delight, all while keeping everyone safe this festive season. It will still be important to reduce the amount of indoor gatherings this winter. Our guests will enjoy a visit to Santa in his beautiful Manor - with reduced numbers and well-ventilated spaces. We will be keeping the popular drive-thru show with it’s spectacular displays - the full journey is explained below so keep scrolling!

Drive around the 2km route, taking in the magical displays of Elftown, The Reindeer Stables, The Toy Factory and much more along the way! This format allows us to showcase this large area with amazing sets without too much walking for little legs and of course you have protection from the elements!

You are welcome to take your own photos with Santa.
