Santa Experience

2nd December 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Santa and Mrs. Claus

You better watch out, you better not shout, you better not cry, I’m telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to town! Yes, Santa & Mrs. Claus are returning to Kerry Writers’ Museum this Christmas in our unique Santa Experience.  Boys and girls from North Kerry and beyond are invited to visit them in their sitting room where a festive gift will be presented to each by the man himself!

And while you are waiting, join the Elves for a feast of festive fun, including face painting, arts & crafts and perhaps a surprise or two! In the meantime here is a special greeting from the man himself.

Season’s greetings to everyone from the magical North Pole!

The elves are working very hard to ensure that all the toys are ready in time to load onto the sleigh on Christmas Eve.

Letters are pouring in from all around the world, so I would like to remind all the boys and girls in Ireland to write and post their letters to me as soon as possible. Mrs Claus and I love reading the letters we receive from all the boys and girls in Ireland, especially when they draw lovely colourful pictures of Mrs Claus and me, and Rudolph loves to see drawings of his bright shiny nose.

I look forward to meeting all the boys and girls at Kerry Writers’ Museum, Listowel this Christmas.  Unfortunately my time is limited so please book in advance as I want to make sure I meet everyone.

I hope you have a wonderfully magical Christmas. – Is mise,

SANTA CLAUS, The North Pole.
