Come Visit Santa When his Train Stops at the Irish Military War Museum. We know it will be a magical snowy evening.

About this Event

Come and meet Santa Claus when he stops on his special Christmas train at the Irish Military War Museum and Family Fun park. Wander through the indoor ice tunnel, pick up some treats like Granma’s homemade cookies and make your way out to the Christmas village where you can see the elves working away getting ready to stock Santa’s sleigh. Make your way through the snowy scene – Yes we guarantee there will be snow no matter the weather – check in on the Christmas stable with our Christmas Donkeys Holly and Ivy not forgetting their sheepish friends.

Make a wish and place it on our wishing tree and hopefully, it will come true maybe even on Christmas morning. See Santa’s sleigh getting loaded and ready to leave but before that, you have to meet the main man himself Santa in his specially adapted Train Station grotto – you can see his train parked outside.

Tell Santa what you are hoping for this Christmas but be careful he might know more about you than you think! So be extra good over the next few weeks!

A gift from Santa for every child!
