Visit Santa & his real live deer Dancer & Prancer at Ireland’s Lapland, Glendeer Pet Farm
It's 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!
They 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 1st Dec at 5pm & will be at the farm every day until the 23rd Dec.
Booking is required at www.glendeerpetfarm.ie.
You can choose your arrival time and when you get here you will receive a numbered ticket for visiting Santa, while you are waiting you can feed the animals including Dancer and Prancer, look around all the Christmas scenes and let the kids play, when it’s your turn to visit Santa you will be called by number, so you won’t be queuing for long.
