How Does It Work?


Check in

Parking is available next to the Coach House. Signage and staff will be on site to direct you.

Please Note: You are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes before your designated visit with Santa.
Santa & the Elves are on a very busy schedule and we cannot guarantee your visit if you arrive later than your pre-booked time!


Head To Tinsel Town!

Make your way to Tinsel Town where you'll be greeted by your very own Elf who will show you around this magical space.  


Visit Santa Claus!

Shortly, thereafter, the whole family will be escorted to the magical grotto for a special, private and individual family visit with Santa Claus.


Enjoy Tinsel Town

After your visit with Santa, there is plenty to do. Play games, make your own decoration to take home, toast marshmallows, play Hook-a-Duck, visit the Live Crib or get your face painted.


Hop on the Train

Soak up the lighting and decorations around the grounds, tune into some festival carols and enjoy the ride all the way to Westport House. 


Visit the Historic House

Make it a Victorian Christmas, take in the twinkling lights, meet Mrs Claus and take your own Christmas Card photo under the giant Christmas tree.

What Is Your Ticket Policy For People With Disability?

Carers of people with disabilities enter free of charge, please do not book them in when booking online. They may simply turn up on the day.  

Do I Need To Book In Advance?


Due to popularity and the limited amount of children that can visit Santa, pre-booking online is essential.  This experience sells out every year.  

If you haven't pre-booked your visit, you are very welcome to drop in and we can see if it's possible for Santa to squeeze you in.  However, to avoid disappointment for the little ones, we highly recommend you call us on +353(0)98 27766 before you travel, to check availability.

I’m A Westport Estate Member, Do I Get A Discount?

Yes, members receive 10% off their Winter Wonderland tickets 
Simply insert your member number in the Discount Code field on the Verify Order screen.
Your membership number is on the back of your membership card

How Do I Book 2 Families To Visit Santa Together?

Our booking engine allows for up to 6 adults, 6 kids and 2 babies per booking. If all parties involved fit within this, please simply book everyone in on the same booking.

PLEASE NOTE: If your bookings are within 1 hour of each another, your paths will more than likely cross throughout the experience.  The only escorted element of your visit is in Tinsel Town.  After Tinsel Town you can of course meet anywhere within the Winter Wonderland experience.

Can I reschedule my visit?

I'm so sorry but due to the popularity of the experience, we cannot accommodate any rescheduling of visits so please pick your day and time carefully. Be sure to check school concerts, matches and any other obligations.  

Can I cancel my visit?

You may cancel your visit but I’m afraid we do not offer a refund.

How do I book in a group?

If you’d like to book in a private group visit, please contact us on info@westporthouse.ie or call 098 27766 as we have some select group days set aside.
