Slieve Aughty’s Christmas festival offers value for money, a relaxed environment, great pancakes and a true Christmas welcoming feel.
Santa takes his time to chat with each kid, and he's always jolly and personal. It makes a believer out of even the most cynical. A perfect day out and a magical experience.
Every year, Santa plans a stop at Slieve Aughty Centre, where he enjoys a soft chair next to a cozy fire in his cabin while he visits with children from the surrounding community. Each child gets personal time with Santa and a small gift.
While you are waiting to see Santa there are lots of other things to do. Visit Santa's reindeer and a live nativity, browse the Christmas and Sweet Shop, chat with other families over a cup of hot mulled wine and homemade pancakes, soups and snacks, and enjoy the festive music (all included in your entry cost!).
Slieve Aughty Centre's Christmas Festival offers something new and different, with live characters, storytelling, arts and crafts, shows, animals, the Snow Queen and more. You never know who will be visiting or what surprises are in store. What we do promise is that you will experience a Christmas Festival like no other with a family feel.
