Join us at Christmas Island for Festive Fun and an Unforgettable and Unique Christmas Experience!
Your experience will include an exciting journey on The North Pole Express, a trip to Christmas Island where you’ll meet the Elves who will try to bring out your creative side and also your wild side with a bit of singing and dancing. You will then visit with the mischievous elves before you head into their new secret portal to visit the big man himself in Santa’s Grotto.
- Most families are with us for 2 hours
- If you have booked your ticket at the end of the day, then you need to arrive earlier if you’d like to get food/drink or if you’ve booked a photo. If you booked the first time slot of the day, then you can stay on after your visit to Christmas Island.
- All children will receive a Gift & Sweet Treat from Santa, an Elf plush toy and a Magic Key for Santa
- Bring your camera for lots of magical photo opportunities
- Option for professional family photo (extra fee)
- The Lakehouse Restaurant & Ice Cream Shop is on site for food/treats/drinks and is open until 9PM
- Experience this Special Time of Year with your Family and Friends at Christmas Island!
Before or after your island visit (depending on the time you booked) you can take part in the festive fun with the Christmas movie room, letters to Santa, getting your family photo taken and walking around the winter wonderland with thousands of twinkling lights.
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!! Please give your poster to Mrs. Claus.

Photos will be posted on our Christmas Island Facebook page throughout the Christmas Island experience and winners will be posted to our page on December 24th.
HELP US HELP OTHERS THIS CHRISTMAS
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 proceeds go to Crumlin’s Children’s Hospital.
Since 2014 this event has donated €21,396. We hope to raise even more again this year!
Your journey will begin on The North Pole Express train!
On arrival to Christmas Island you’ll enter Santa’s largest Igloo to:
Meet the Elves
Get Creative and make a Christmas decoration
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 and sing until your heart’s content.
Next it’s time to see what those Mischievous Elves have been up to. Can you remember their names? They won’t be shy to fill you in on all the trouble they’ve been up to! Even though silly and mischievous, they are also compassionate and have a gift for the children.
Now it’s time to meet Santa!
Make yourself at home in the cosy grotto while Santa’s helper takes families back 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.
