THE Magical WAY TO SPREAD FESTIVE CHEER THIS YEAR
IRELAND’S BEST SANTA EXPERIENCE IS BACK FOR 2021 IN DRIVE-THRU FORMAT WITH OUTDOOR UNLIMITED FUNFAIR AT THE 1100 ACRE PALMERSTOWN HOUSE ESTATE
SANTA'S HOUSE EXPRESS: DRIVE-THRU CHRISTMAS 2021
Great news - we will be hosting our Drive-thru Christmas event again for 2021 and we are delighted to announce the return of our unlimited family funfair (all inclusive with your ticket), and traditional Santa’s sleigh gift photo option.
We were absolutely blown away with your feedback on this event in 2020 - the experience was thoroughly enjoyed by kids and adults alike. This year with some easing of restrictions has allowed us to include the ever popular unlimited outdoor funfair and sleigh photo to the offering, along with some other new exciting elements.
DRIVE-THRU CHRISTMAS is a magical drive-thru experience visiting the elves in Elf Town, followed by a visit to the awe-inspiring Twinkle Avenue and The Enchanted Forest, before the main event - meeting Santa in his Grotto - the big man himself will have a gift for each child and time to chat with the family. Next up - park up the car and enjoy the fun and thrills at our inclusive, unlimited funfair at the Manor Gardens. Guests also have the option here to purchase some hot food and festive treats, and an option to get a professional photo gift of their family on Santa’s Sleigh.
