Dublin – Santa Experience

Santa Experience in Dublin

Santa Experience is back in Dublin for 2018

The award winning and original Santa Experience returns to the Ilac Centre in Dublin City. The Santa Experience in association with Dunnes Stores has  provided children and adults alike with a magical journey to Santa’s House. Travelling through 5 fun filled festive rooms meeting elves, reindeer, polar bears and maybe even getting to ride in Santa’s Sleigh on your way to meet the big man himself. The Santa Experience started in Limerick and see’s it open for the 7 year in Dublin.

The Santa Experience has proved very popular in Dublin 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 x 10 format with a 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 Artic
  • 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  has won “Best Santa’s Grotto” in Dublin as well as winning Best Santa in Cork and Limerick.
  • Santa Experience also won “Best santa in Ireland”

The Santa Experience

The Santa Experience in Dublin is a multi family tour (maximum 5 children) through the North Pole spanning 2,000 sq.ft. On your journey you will meet and interact with elves in the Post Office, Santa’s stable, the Sleigh Station where you also meet Rudolf, The Artic with Polar bears & penguins and finally Santa’s magical house!

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 8×10 format.

It’s great experience for all the family.
