Santa’s Island at Donegal’s Lapland 2019

Santa’s Island at Donegal’s Lapland is a unique and truly magical fun-filled experience for children of all ages to meet Santa and his eleves, and also to receive a special gift from him this Christmas!

To keep people coming back we like to makes a few changes now and again, introduce new attractions and throw in a few special surprises from one year to the next and this year is no different.

Special lighting effects, snow effects and smoke machines will be used at various points through Donegal’s Lapland this year all to help enhance the festive experience for your visitors

There will also be animals included  in parts of the Santa’s Village for all them animal lovers who visit this Christmas!

When the live show gets underway, the head elf appears and explains the story of Christmas. The children watch as a star appears above the stage

Then the curtain opens…

Behind the curtain is Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus along with a donkey in a stable

The Elf now explains how Santa got involved in the story of Christmas.

Santa now makes his entrance coming down the chimney. He talks to all those gathered and at the end calls out each child by name and has a small special gift for each of them. When Santa has given each child their gift, everyone is free to move out to Santa’s Village

In Santa’s Village you can visit Santa’s home, see what he eats for breakfast and visit the elves’ bedroom. You can explore Santa’s office and the children can write and post their list for Christmas. Tour Santa’s shops, visit the toy factory and sit on Santa’s sleigh.

The village courtyard includes;

  • The stable with donkey and crib.
  • Post office
  • Santa’s Sleigh
  • Santa’s House where you can meet Mrs Claus and make sure the Elves are asleep
  • Santa’s helpers & reindeer
  • Santa’s Toy Store, here each child can pick out the present of their choice!

Now you must head through the tunnel.

Here you see Santa’s train loaded with presents.

Next is Santa’s magic wardrobe. In you go and find yourself in a different world with Santa’s castle, elves house and here you can again meet Santa in his igloo for a photo opportunity.
