Galway – Slieve Aughty Centre’s Christmas Festival

Slieve Aughty Centre’s Christmas Festival 2017

Every year, Santa plans a stop at Slieve Aughty Centre in Galway, where families meet around a cozy fire in his cabin. While you are waiting to see Santa there are lots of other things to do.

Pet Santa’s “pony” reindeer and the donkeys at the live nativity, browse the Christmas Shop, chat with other families over a cup of hot chocolate and home-made pancakes, and enjoy the festive music.  The kids can make some crafts, get their faces painted, and meet a friendly polar bear while waiting for storytelling (all included in your entry cost!).

Save some room for home-made treats and organic mulled wine at The Three Tower Organic Kitchen, open all day.

Of course, no day is complete without a visit to their award winning Santa Claus.  His chalet has plenty of room for the entire family to sit beside him by a warm fire, and a friendly elf can take a photo for you.  Santa always takes his time to chat with each child and gives them an early Christmas gift.

Slieve Aughty Centre’s Christmas Festival (who won the Best Santa Award in 2010) offers something new and different, with live characters, storytelling, arts and crafts, shows, animals, the Snow Queen and more. You never know who will be visiting or what surprises are in store. What they do promise is that you will experience a Christmas Festival like no other with a family feel.

In case you haven’t been here before, plan 2-3 hours to do everything.
