Take a trip on a real train to visit Santa. When you arrive at Kilmeadan Station you will board the train. The conductor will check your train tickets and give you red blankets to keep you nice and cosy on the journey. Christmas music will be playing.
When everyone is safely on board the train will set off on an exciting journey through the countryside along the banks of the River Suir and in to the Magic Wood where you will meet Mrs Claus and some friends. Mrs Claus will give the children magic dust to sprinkle on the lawn on Christmas night. The train journey lasts about 25 minutes.
You then return to the station, go through the Carriage shop to visit Santa as a family. Santa is in a cosy cottage outside the carriage. It snows outside Santa’s Cottage. The children will have a nice chat with Santa and get a good quality present. Photos are optional at €5.00
To entertain you at the station before or after your trip you can meet the Mayfield Birds of Prey – They have beautiful barn owls – Boo, Bobbins, Muffin, Peanut and Hiccup or you could meet Izzy the Bengal Eagle Owl or a magnificent Harris Hawk.
