Dublin – Santa Experience at Croke Park

"Santa Experience at Croke Park"

Santa Experience at Croke Park 2016

Visit Santa’s Grotto, the Elves’ Living Quarters, the Toy Factory and the GAA Museum at the Santa Experience in Croke Park

Did you know that Santa’s favourite games are Gaelic Games? He’s had so many requests for footballs and hurleys over the years that he’s had plenty of practice and has become a talented full-forward!

Because of his love of all things GAA, Santa has set up his Irish headquarters in Croke Park. His band of elves have already moved into the team dressing rooms, which they are busy transforming into their living quarters for the festive season ahead. They are also working with the dedicated team at Croke Park to ensure the pitch is in perfect condition for Santa’s arrival on November 26th, when the Santa Experience at Croke Park begins.

Families from all over Ireland are invited to visit the iconic stadium and Santa’s very special grotto, where each child will meet with the man himself and receive a Christmas gift – whether they’ve been naughty or nice!  The Santa Experience also includes a behind the scenes trip to the Elves’ Living Quarters and their Toy Factory. Not only that but all ticket holders will get a sneak peek pitch side, where even the goal posts will be twinkling!

The experiences includes FREE admission to the GAA Museum, where families can discover two floors of interactive exhibits. Children can pick up their Junior Explorer passport and follow the special route which highlights some of the most fascinating and famous exhibitions, including the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy cups. A highlight for many boys and girls (and Mums and Dads!) is the museum’s Interactive Games Zone, where you can test your own hurling and football skills – see how fast your family can react, check your passing skills and practice a fingertip save or the art of the high catch!

The Santa Experience at Croke Park promises to be one of best Christmas family days out in Ireland.  You never know, the touch of Christmas magic might even inspire your little one to be the next GAA All-Star!

There’ll be plenty of beautifully festive family photo opportunities, and a professional photographer will also be on hand to capture the moment.  And you can finish off the perfect day with light refreshments and a festive snack in the museum’s Blackthorn Café.  Or you could pick up the perfect stocking fillers for the GAA fan in your life from the GAA Museum Shop.
