Santa’s Magical Cabin

Santa’s Magical Cabin will this year once again be bringing smiles to the faces of many lucky children throughout Ennis and beyond!

The Santa Experience has proved very popular in Ennis and across Ireland winning various awards including: Best Santa in Limerick, Best Santa in Cork, Best Santa’s Grotto in Dublin and Best Santa in Ireland.

This year Santa’s Magical Cabin provides families with a guided tour through the magical tunnel directly to Santa’s house for a private visit with Santa.

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 magical moment. Photos can be viewed and purchased immediately afterwards in large 8 x 10 format with an optional frame. The photographer won’t just capture the typical posed family photographs, they will get shots of Santa speaking with the children, giving them their presents and the children (and adults!) laughing at his jokes!

It’s great experience for all the family to enjoy!

Santa’s Shop

Reindeer Food: This year, Santa has given the secret recipe for his magical Reindeer Food to the Santa Experience in Ennis. 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!

“Finding Nutmeg” Activity Book: Bring the adventures of ‘Finding Nutmeg’ to your home this Christmas! Children can now go on their own creative journey meeting elves, colouring in elves, and solving puzzles along the way!
