Elves in Training at Croke Park!
New ‘Elves in Training’ Santa Experience at the GAA Museum this Christmas
Have you ever wondered what it takes to become one of Santa’s trusty elves? If so, you can’t miss the magical new ‘Elves in Training’ Santa Experience at the GAA Museum in Croke Park this Christmas from 24th November!
Santa has transformed GAA HQ into his secret elf camp, where only the fittest, strongest and healthiest of all elves are trained! In fact, every pointy-eared helper that is chosen for the GAA Museum training programme is a member of the North Pole Hurling, Football and Camogie Club, which is the most Northerly and charmed GAA club in the world and managed by Santa himself!
In exciting news, Santa is opening the doors of his training facility to a select number of children, and anyone lucky enough to get a ticket and make it on his ‘list’ will learn the secrets of becoming an elite Elf.
At the Santa Experience at Croke Park, your family will wander through a behind-the-scenes candy cane trail, catching glimpses along the way of how the Elves get fit and ready for the season ahead and their big day, which isn’t the All-Ireland for once!
You’ll wander in awe through the mesmerising snow tunnel and the North Pole team’s changing room. While you’re there make sure you listen for banter in the shower room to see who’s made it the naughty or nice list! You might also need to hold your nose as you leave the dressing room, as the trainee Elves’ don’t usually listen to Mrs Claus when she tells them to pick up their dirty gear!
One of the highlights of the magical trail is a visit to Santa’s Bainisteoir’s office, the heart of all the action, where Santa reviews tactics and selects his dream team for the big journey on Christmas Eve.
After this meet and greet with Santa, where every child will receive a gift and get their professional photo taken, your family can run out pitch-side, like their GAA heroes, and take their own Croke Park ‘Elfies’, making even more magical memories.
You will then get complimentary admission to the GAA Museum, where you can discover two floors of interactive exhibits which chart the journey of Gaelic games from ancient times to the present day. Marvel at the original Sam Maguire and Liam MacCarthy cups and test your hurling and football skills in the museum’s Interactive Games Zone! After working up a hunger, finish off the perfect day with light refreshments and a festive snack in the museum’s Blackthorn Café. And before you leave, you can even pick up a stocking filler reminder of your big day in the GAA Museum Gift Shop!
