Christmas Spirit at Slieve Aughty, Galway

2020 Family Christmas Festival Galway

Visit Santa weekends starting Saturday December 5th

We are delighted to welcome families back to Slieve Aughty for a safe, socially distanced and fun Santa experience.

This year things will be a little different as we strive to provide your family with a memorable Christmas experience and adhere to current government guidelines due to COVID-19.

Jolly Santa will visit with 1 family at a time in his grotto, accompanied by a friendly elf who can take a family photo for you and hand out the presents to the children.  A family group is to be no more than 6 people + infants.

What you get...

  • A family visit with Santa and a plastic free gift for each child
  • Hot drink and sweet treat on arrival
  • One pony ride and one storytelling session per child
  • Decorate your own fairy door to take home
  • Photo booth
  • Access to the Enchanted Forest, outdoor games, playground and farm animals
  • A personal unhurried visit with Santa for your group

Always personal, non-commercial and authentic, Santa at Slieve Aughty is a great way to escape the busy season rush and get back in touch with the Christmas spirit.

We would like to thank all of the families who have been with us over the last 15 years of hosting Santa visits in Galway and hope to maybe see you again this year with your family, friends and Santa.

Homemade delicious organic food and drink will be available all day at The Three Tower Organic Kitchen, open 12pm to 7pm.
