Not only do you get up close and personal with lots of the animals, but there are lots of other fun activities for all ages.


Visit Santa & his real live deer Dancer & Prancer at Ireland’s Lapland, Glendeer Pet Farm


Its not everyday that you arrive at a farm decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, meet Santa & his deer Dancer & Prancer or see a crib with a live cow & donkey, except of course when you visit Ireland’s Lapland at Glendeer Pet Farm.  

Ireland’s Lapland has something for everyone, young & old alike. The children get their little bag of food to feed the animals as they make their way over to see Santa, have a chat with him & receive a gift & adults can treat themselves to fresh coffee/cappucino & homemade snacks in the warm surroundings of the cosy coffee shop.

Glendeer is perfect even on those wet or snowy days with plenty to entertain the kids including the INDOOR slide area, the soft play toddler area and if you follow the trail through the Winter Wonderland you will find the secret sand pit. Just remember to wrap up warm!
We don’t provide a Santa photo but bring along your phone or camera and Santa’s helper will take a family picture for you. This year Santa arrives by sleigh on Sat 2nd Dec at 5pm & will be at the farm every day until the 23rd Dec. Special rates for groups of 20 & over, catered for by appointment during the day (school groups etc).

You don't even have to wait for a fine day to visit, because let's face it you might be waiting; Glendeer is suitable for any weather as there are indoor & outdoor picnic & play areas incl. the suspended indoor play area and the NEW soft play toddler's area.

There is a large section of the animals are also undercover and while the children are cuddling the puppies the adults can relax in our coffee shop with fresh coffee/tea & homemade treats.

Be amazed at how friendly all of the animals are as the wander up around you looking for food. Each child will get a bag of food to feed the animals as you make your way around the six acre farm.

Why not bring a picnic along to enjoy, but beware of the greedy donkey who can spot a picnic bag a mile away & will try to join you, if they don't the hens will!

i visited this pet farm with my two daughters and my son who is still a toddler, along with extended family in august as a family reunion. I must say this was one of the best days out we have ever had in Ireland! the staff were extremely friendly and one even let the kids hold both a puppy and a rabbit. there was both an indoor and outdoor playground which was great for when it began to rain! truthfully an excellent pet farm.”
