Santa returns to Donegal Railway Museum
Donegal Railway Museum is delighted to announce that its famous Christmas Santa event is back again, bigger and better than ever before. After our last runaway success, the elves have been busy helping Santa at his Grotto, with more excitingly new Christmas displays including the famous steam engine, Drumboe, as well as new fun family activities.
Dates & Times to see Santa – December 2021
Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th, Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th, 12noon – 6pm.
Niall McCaughan, Manager at the museum stated: “We are really excited about Santa’s return to the museum. This is a great experience for kids and families, which includes not only a ride on the Polar Express to see Santa & Mrs Claus and receive a gift (and maybe even a Selfie with Santa), but also Christmas puzzles to solve, new Christmas displays to see, model railways, an opportunity to see our new attraction the famous Donegal Steam Engine Drumboe up close, and much much more. This year, with additional Covid measures in place, families will be allocated individual time slots, so more one-to-one interaction from Santa and his elves!
It’s important for us that this experience which will leave lasting memories for the children, is much more than simply meeting Santa and getting a pressie. That’s the reason why we put so much effort into a series of activities for families on their visit, and if the truth be told, we get as much out of this as the children do!
This cost is only €15 per child, €5 for adults; family discounts are available. As everything is indoors, it’s not weather dependent. Santa’s elves are currently working on the Christmas illumination’s which will guide Rudolph and the rest of the reindeers to Donegal Town for this very special return visit. Santa is looking forward to seeing you all.
