Christmas Experience 2019

Wish upon a star at Malahide Castle and Gardens this Christmas...

From 30th November to 23rd December 2019

Magic is coming to Malahide Castle again this festive season with our very special Christmas Experience 2019.

Meet Santa, Mrs Claus and the friendly elves in their magical grotto where they are getting ready for the busiest night of the year! 

After your visit to Santa, enjoy a special journey through the rooms and hallways of the 800-year-old castle to soak up the atmosphere with our Christmas guests Cinderella, The Fairy Godmother and Prince Charming.

Santa will have age appropriate gifts to give to all the children who visit him and there'll be mulled wine and mince pies for the grown-ups too!

Photo mementos of your visit will be available for purchase on the day.

Please see our Christmas FAQs for more information and answers to your questions.
