Visit Santa and Dancer and Prancer at Glendeer Pet Farm

It’s not every day that you arrive at a farm decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, meet Santa and his deer Dancer and Prancer or see a crib with a live cow and donkey, except of course when you visit Ireland’s Lapland at Glendeer Pet Farm.  Glendeer Pet Farm, which is located just outside Athlone off the M6 (Tuam/Monksland exit 13, follow Drum signs) has all facilities undercover.  Ireland’s Lapland has something for everyone, young and old alike. The children get their little bag of food to feed the animals as they make their way over to see Santa, have a chat with him and receive a gift. Adults can treat themselves to fresh coffee/cappucino and homemade snacks in the warm surroundings of the cosy coffee shop.

  There is plenty to entertain the kids with the indoor skywalk play area with lots of slides and bridges so Glendeer is perfect even on those wet or snowy days, just remember to wrap up warm! This year Santa will be at the farm every evening until the 23rd December.

  Special rates for groups of 20 and over, catered for by appointment during the day. Admission: Adults €8, Children €16 (includes visit to Santa and gift).

  Opening times for Ireland’s Lapland: Monday to Friday (4 pm-7 pm), Saturday and Sunday (3 pm-7 pm). New this year is the indoor soft play toddler area and follow the trail through the Winter Wonderland to the new secret sand pit.
