The first weekend of Strokestown's Drive Thru Santa's Grotto was a fantastic experience for all involved.
Over 150 children visited us on the grounds of Strokestown Park House and got to see our magical winter wonderland and see the elves working hard making toys and wrapping presents. There was singing and dancing, a visit from Pingui the penguin and of course great fun with Santa and Mrs Claus in their sitting room.
A huge thank you to everyone who came to visit us and to all our amazing volunteers who were so enthusiastic and energetic and really helped make the event a success.
We look forward to welcoming all those who have booked in next week.
Please note this event is fully booked.
Beautiful and historic Strokestown, a focal point of Ireland's Hidden Heartlands, is perfectly situated halfway across Ireland:
* approximately 90 minutes from the hustle & bustle of Dublin (and Ireland's Ancient East) and Galway (on Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way).
* just 40 minutes from Ireland West Airport in Knock.
