Over the past 12 years Santa’s Magical Cabin in association with Dunnes Stores has provided children and adults alike with a wonderful visit to Santa Claus in his magical cabin! 

An elf guide will meet each family upon check in and take them directly to their private meeting with Santa Claus. 

Children will be amazed by what Santa knows about them, thanks to the Santa Needs to Know forms, filled in at the time of booking. Santa will also give each child a beautiful age-appropriate gift.

Everyone will be entertained throughout by energetic elves who will tell everyone exactly how Santa, his reindeer and all the elves prepare for Christmas. 

Tickets cost €13 per child & €6 per adult and can be booked online in advance to ensure you get your preferred time and date. Each ticket includes meeting and interacting with elves, meeting your elf guide, visiting Santa in his Magical Cabin, personal info on each child and a gift from Santa.

A professional photographer will be on hand to capture all magical moments and you can order 8 x 10 framed prints immediately afterwards if you wish. The first print is priced at €16 and subsequent prints will be priced at €12 per print. A special personalised invitation from Santa to your children can also be purchased for €12 which is posted directly to your home.
