Westport House in Westport Co.Mayo is brilliant for Santa, the kids get to decorate gingerbread men, paint Christmas decorations and make Christmas logs, get storytime with Mrs clause and when they see Santa, he knows all the kids names and something about them like their pets name and what present they want. (You give them the details when you are booking), the house is all decorated and it's really magical.
Oh yes, that is a good one. We were there a few years ago. Its a long way out though if you don't live in the West though....
I know we travelled from Co. Louth but we stayed for the weekend in Hotel Westport they had a great deal on for the Friday and Saturday night usually they do it the first weekend in December and they include a visit to Santa at the hotel aswel! So we booked Westport House aswel for the Saturday and had a fantastic wkend
