On arrival adults can enjoy a complimentary mulled wine/beverage, while children can enjoy a complimentary hot chocolate in the charming oak beamed visitor centre.

Guided by Santa’s merry helpers visit Mrs. Claus in her cosy cabin to hear about the new elf village, before meeting our exceptionally jolly Santa in his old stone bell house.

Then for some extra magic and real Christmas wonder take the Christmas train to discover the elves’ village and their fantastic colourful huts deep in our 80 acre natural woodland, and keep an eye out for the colourful toadstool mushroom houses. As the train passes over the 17th century stone bridge, lakes and streams, and around the giant Christmas tree, make a wish before setting off to see the elves’ special secret tree house. You and your family will be sure to enjoy a magical, fun filled journey passing by elf and fairy land at Castlecomer Discovery Park this Christmas!
