Santa's House Express 2022

Journey Through Santa's Kingdom this Christmas Season!

Ireland's Favourite Santa Experience returns for 2022

Located only 15 minutes drive from Killashee Hotel, Santa’s House Express is back in Palmerstown House Estate with a wonderful ‘Journey through Santa's Kingdom’ experience for 2022.

Established in 2014, the experience has been welcoming families as part of their traditions for almost a decade now.

Located just off exit 8 on the N7 and a 15-minute drive from Dublin, Santa’s House Express is the best place to visit Santa for a magical festive experience.

This year the experience is combining the best of both their traditional and drive-thru experiences. The 2022 show is designed to surprise and delight, all while keeping everyone safe this festive season. It will still be important to reduce the amount of indoor gatherings this winter. Guests will enjoy a visit to Santa in his beautiful Manor - with reduced numbers and well-ventilated spaces. The experience will be keeping their popular drive-thru show with its spectacular displays.

What to expect?

Guests will arrive and enjoy a hassle free check-in from the comfort of their own car, before embarking on an adventure through Santa’s Kingdom. Drive around the 2km route, taking in the magical displays of Elftown, The Reindeer Stables, The Toy Factory and much more along the way! This format allows the experience to be showcased within this large area with amazing sets without too much walking for little legs and of course you have protection from the elements! 

​For the second part of the experience, you will park the car & make your way up Candy Cane Lane to visit Santa in his Manor House. Indoor spaces will be well-ventilated and capacity will be reduced and limited. Santa will spend time chatting to each family and will have a gift token for each child! You are welcome to take your own photos with Santa. 

​For the final part of the experience, guests can spend some time at our outdoor ‘Winter Wonderland’ village around the Manor, where you will find the ever-popular family funfair, along with stalls with food & drinks. 5 funfair ride tokens per child are included in the ticket. There will be plenty of photo opportunities here, along with the optional gift photo of your family on Santa’s Sleigh. Don’t forget to stop by Santa’s Toy store on the way back to the car to redeem your gift token for any present of your choice!
