Magical Christmas at Castle Coole

Castle Coole will be home to Santa and Mrs Claus from 8-18 December as they prepare for the busy Christmas season. They will be welcoming children into their magical Christmas home - the perfect way to get into the festive spirit.

Santa entertains some enthralled children at Castle Coole

Begin at the tea-room where you can check-in and get working on some Christmas crafts to take home or pop onto our Christmas tree.

Start your journey through the magical tunnel with one of Santa's elves up to the elves' workroom where Mrs Claus will welcome you to their winter home. Meet Santa in the kitchen where he'll get everyone gathered up in front of the range for a chat. Each child will receive a special gift from Santa, but he'll be checking with parents just exactly how good they've been all year!
