Santa’s Magical Cabin presented by The Santa Experience in Dublin 2023
Santa’s Magical Cabin is part of the award winning and original Santa Experience and is in it’s 4th year in operation at the Ilac Centre in Dublin City. Santa’s Magical Cabin will provide children and adults alike with a magical Christmas feeling.
At Santa’s Magical Cabin your family will follow one of Santa’s elves and they will guide you through the magical tunnel directly to Santa’s cabin for a special and private visit with the big man himself!
With an unforgettable visit to Santa in his magical cabin, get yourself a special present and have your picture taken with Santa.
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 visit in Santa’s Magical Cabin Experience.
Family Fun Tip: Fill out the ‘Santa Needs to Know’ form – Santa knows some personal information about each child which enhances every child’s experience. Santa will offer an age appropriate gift and take memorable photos that will last a lifetime!
Reindeer Food: This year, Santa has given the secret recipe for his magical Reindeer Food to the Santa Experience in Ilac Centre Dublin. Rudolph and the other reindeer get very hungry on their journey around the world! The Magical Reindeer food comes in a beautiful hand tied bag complete with a tag.
Be sure to get some and hang the food on your tree until Christmas Eve. Sprinkle it outside just before bedtime for Rudolf and the other reindeer so they know exactly where your house is!
Personal Letter and Nice List Certificate: You also can get your very own personal letter from Santa Claus himself straight from the North Pole to your doorstep! Based on the information you provide Santa will create a magical letter unique to your child. Each letter comes with an authentic ‘Nice List’ certificate.
“Finding Nutmeg” Book: This beautifully illustrated children’s book details the story of a little boy’s adventure to the magical North Pole. After finding a magical coin outside his grandad’s workshop, Sean embarks on a mission to return it to its rightful owner: Nutmeg the Elf. Finding Nutmeg is a timeless tale that’s sure to bring the whole family together!
