You will then depart Christmas Island on Santa’s giant sleigh boat headed to see the big man himself in Santa’s Grotto.

If you’re good and paying attention, then you may even see Rudolph!


  • All adults and children will take a ride on The North Pole Express (Santa’s magical white train)
  • All children will receive a gift from Santa.

At Christmas Island we ask you to bring your own camera and our elves will take your family photo on Santa’s sleigh, with Santa, at the giant Christmas tree, with Mrs. Claus and more. You will then have many photos to share with your family friends by email, Facebook, etc.)
  • Experience this special time of year with your family and friends at Christmas Island!!

Don’t forget to print off and colour/decorate your Colouring-Poster and bring with you on your scheduled day. Don’t be afraid to get creative! The winning poster will be posted to our Christmas Island Facebook page on December 24th!!

BEST DRESSED (Get in the Festive Spirit and wear your Christmas Jumpers and Accessories)
We were amazed with all the families last year who made such a brilliant effort to visit us in all their “Christmas Gear”, so for this year we have decided to have a competition with some great prizes for these families!!!  So don’t be afraid to have some FUN and surprise us with your creativity!!! Photos will be posted on our Christmas Island Facebook page throughout the Christmas Island experience dates and winners will be posted to our page on December 24th.

Before or after your island visit you can take part in the festive fun with the Christmas movie room, walking around the winter wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights, exerting energy in the giant Snowman jumper and playing in the children’s adventure park. Hot food and drink will be served all day. The Adventure Mini Golf on site will also be open for those looking for extra activities!

When purchasing your Christmas Island tickets, you have the option to donate just €1.00. For every €1.00 donated, Christmas Island will donate another €1.00. All money raised will go towards Christmas presents, which will be distributed by Saint Vincent de Paul for children in the Wicklow area. Last year we donated €3,012.00 and we hope to beat it this year with your help!

elfIgloo 2: Have Fun with the Elves

Following the tunnel from Igloo 1 to Igloo 2 will bring you into the Elves dome where everyone will mingle with the Elves, dance around the Christmas tree, have fun with the floating bubbles and sing until your heart’s content. Departure from Christmas Island will take place after Igloo 2.  The elves will guide you out to Santa’s giant sleigh boat. Once aboard and seated, the boat will set off for an exciting journey to Santa’s Grotto! No need to worry about the weather as the boat is fully enclosed and covered, however it has been known that festive cheer and merry songs are needed to get this boat moving!!  So sit back, relax and set your eyes amongst all the twinkling lights, festive decorations and sing to the music on Santa’s boat.

Now it’s time to meet Santa!

On arrival to Santa’s Dock the elves will help everyone off the sleigh boat and guide you over to Santa’s Grotto. Once inside make yourself at home in the cosy grotto while Santa’s helper takes each family individually to see Santa.

Visit with Santa and tell him what your family will be doing for Christmas this year. If the children have been good all year and are on their best behaviour, then on permission from the parents/guardians each child will receive a present to take home.


Christmas Island and Santa’s Grotto will be sure to fill your family full of laughter, fun and excitement!
