Cork – Santa Experience

Santa in Santa Experience Cork

Santa Experience Cork is back for 2019

The award winning and original Santa Experience returns to Cork City for Christmas. The Santa Experience in association with Dunnes Stores(3rd floor) in Patrick St., in the heart of Cork City has provided children and adults alike with a magical journey to Santa’s House. The Santa Experience in association with Dunnes Stores is an interactive multi-family tour through the North Pole ending in Santa’s magical house.

The Santa Experience has proved very popular in Cork last year and across Ireland. One of the keys attractions besides the 2,000 sq.ft “Experience” itself is the option to book ahead to secure a specific time (within 30mins) and date. “BOOKING OPEN NOW” This allows people to plan their day and get the date they want.

Also the photographs which are extra (but worth it!) come in a professional 8×10 format with black silver trim card frame.

The quality is fantastic and it provides families with a timeless memento. You choose and collect your photos immediately after your journey through the Santa Experience.

Take a tour of the North Pole visiting 5 fun filled festive rooms including:

  • The Elves Post office
  • Santa’s Stable
  • The Sleigh Station
  • The North Pole
  • Santa’s House

Family Fun Tip:- Fill out the Santa needs to know forms – Santa knows some personal information about each child which enhances every child’s experience

  • Santa Experience Cork won “Best Santa in Cork” .
  • Santa Experience also won “Best Santa in Ireland”

The Santa Experience In Cork

The Santa Experience Cork will this year once again be bringing smiles to the faces of many lucky children throughout Cork and beyond.

The Santa Experience is a multi family tour (maximum 6 children) through the North Pole spanning 2,000 sq.ft. The family experience includes visiting the Elves Post Office, Santa’s Reindeer Stable and Sleigh Station followed by a journey through the North Pole before arriving at Santa’s front door.

When you reach Santa’s House the big man himself will then speak with each child and because Santa is magic he seems to know something about every boy and girl and sometimes even mums, dads and grandparents!

Each child then receives a lovely gift and has some fun photos taken with Santa!!

A professional photographer is on hand to capture that magic moment. Photos can be viewed and purchased immediately afterwards in large 8 x 10 format.

It’s great experience for all the family.

Santa’s Shop

This year Santa has given  the secret recipe for his magical Reindeer Food to Santa Experience and they will be selling it at all their 3 venues. Be sure to get some and hang the food on your tree until Christmas Eve and then sprinkle it outside just before bedtime for Rudolf and the other reindeer.

You also can get your very own personal letter from Santa Claus himself straight from the North Pole to your doorstep!
