Christmas at Cois Na hAbhann

Full of Magic

The Santa experience at Cois na hAbhainn far surpassed any others we have have had. It was so personal and full of magic. Just brilliant!


Would highly recommend

Visited Santa as a group, brilliant experience the kids loved it, the staff are lovely and the elves, Heidi, Mrs Claus and Santa are excellent at entertaining the kids, lots of time and attention to detail, made it really magical for the small kids, would highly recommend a visit to Santa at cois na habhann


Loved the Elfies

My son loved the Santa experience and can't wait to go back next year. The whole experience is very well done and as each family is taken through individually you don't feel like it is rushed or crowded as it is in many places. We all loved the great idea of the elfies at the end too.


11 out of 10

If it was possible give 11 out of 10 for the Santa Experience, it would be so deserved. From the Snow Queen right through the whole journey of meeting Santa, from the postroom to the elves, and Santa's room, the kitchen, the workshop and the winter snow scene with the animals, it was just pure magic, a true personal magic trip for any family. Cannot recommend this experience enough, top class!


5 Stars

I took my 3 year old twins to see Santa for the first time on Saturday. The twins have autism and I was quite concerned about how the visit would go. I had a quick chat with the lady on reception about my concerns and she spoke to the staff for me. I shouldn't have worried, the visit was fantastic with the kids being allowed as much time as they needed to enjoy each room. Santa and Mrs. Claus were very kind and thoughtful and Mustard, Custard, Heidi and Ellie were upbeat and fun, just what kids want. The lighting was subdued and the noise level was comfortable. I would certainly encourage any parent of a child with ASD to visit Santa here. Saturday's visit may be the start of a family tradition.


Here at Cois na hAbhann we love Christmas so we are bursting with excitement to announce that Santa and his helpers will be paying us an extra special visit this year. Santa has given us very detailed drawings and we are recreating his 2,500sq foot house, complete with his bedroom (that he shares with Mrs Claus), the elves bedroom, Mrs Claus’ kitchen as well the most important room of all ,the elves workshop.


There will of course be a stables and you can see where Rudolf and his friends sleep every night while they are waiting for their big day – drawing Santa’s sleigh. You can see the elves making toys in their workshop. You will stop off in Mrs Claus’ kitchen where you will decorate your very own cookies. There will be Christmas story telling and lots more fun for all the little people to enjoy. Our little visitors will finish their magical journey in Santa’s Grotto where they will each receive a very special gift as well as a personalised certificate showing that they are on the “Nice List”.  Each family will get to meet Santa individually, and take lots of photos along the way. We can’t wait for all of you to meet him, so don’t delay, book today.


(You can also say hello to our live deer and donkeys in our outdoor plant area to finish off your visit).


For the grown-ups (big children) we have a fantastic Christmas shop set over 3500 sq ft with enough Christmas present ideas to fill everybody’s list, so come and spend some quality time with your little helpers and find that perfect gift at the same time.


At Cois na hAbhann we are very family friendly all year round. Our facilities for your little ones include a lift for easy access to the upstairs area of the shop, baby changing facilities, play area on the decking of the Cafe, children’s chill-out corner with Books and games etc. in the plant area so you can relax after the excitement of Santa.
