6 PLACES TO SEE SANTA IN GALWAY

Santa is a difficult man to keep track of at the best of times, and especially in the winter months. We’ll never understand how he has the time, but Santa will be visiting our lovely Galway this festive season and we’ve given you a list of the best places to see him. Bring the kids along, he’s taking Santa letters, having parties, and has even brought friends along for balloon making, singing, face-painting, you name it! And speaking of names…yours is on his list this year, were you naughty or nice?

 

SANTA AT MEUBLES

Santa is taking a quick stop in Meubles this weekend, and we’re all invited. As it’s still a little early, he hasn’t gotten all of his letters yet, so your little ones can write theirs and give them to Santa in person!
Not only this, but there’s plenty of other bits and pieces for everyone to do. Everyone’s favourites, balloon modelling and face painting will be available on the day, and we know it’s not just the kids who enjoy these…

SANTA’S WORKSHOP AT AILLWEE CAVES

Santa in the Aillwee Caves is an absolute treat for not just the kids. Santa has been taking up his annual residence at Aillwee Cave in Ballyvaughan specially to meet children and their families since The Millennium. He works very hard to prepare this unique event. On the day there will be face painting, a puppet show and lots of carnival entertainment to be enjoyed. You will be guided along the cave passageways singing Christmas Carols all the way. Santa Claus with his helper will meet and chat with each child and of course have a present for everyone. Mrs Claus is there to greet the grownup with a glass of hot punch and a mince pie.
