Santa At Doneraile beckons


We earnestly hope to see you in future years!

Enjoy the enthralling Doneraile Court backdrop on your family visit to Santa this year.

Busy he may be, but Santa’s taking the time again this year to bring sacks of presents to all the good children. He will welcome visitors while stationed at his fine mansion, Doneraile Court, in the heart of Doneraile Wildlife Park. Close by the House will be his Igloo and Elves’ Workshop. With help from Mrs Claus and various naughty elves, you’ll be entertained there with a Puppet Show and Storytelling.

There will be great excitement on Sunday 1st December, when he takes up residence there, where Santa Claus will sleep for the remainder of the weekend nights before his epic travels around the world on Christmas Eve. You’ll get to see Santa’s Bedroom! You could also hope to catch sight of some of Rudolph’s friends among the deer in the Park. And you might complete the visit to Santa’s Wonderland with a delicious hot chocolate from the Tea Rooms.
