Santa's Hotel

Believe the magic this Christmas and start the festive journey at Santa’s Hotel in Donegal. Santa and his elves are taking over Jacksons Hotel and transforming it into a winter wonderland. Santa's Hotel will be running from Saturday 22nd of November - Monday 22nd of December.

Christmas activities include:

  • Join the elves for hot chocolate and marsh mallows 
  • Sprinkle magic reindeer dust 
  • Write your letter to Santa and visit Santa’s post office and have your letter sent directly to the North-Pole
  • Visit the mystical woods (indoors) and enjoy a Christmas Story by one of Santa's helpers
  • Take a peek into the elves bedroom and see if you can catch anyone sleeping
  • Visit Santa’s very own real life reindeer and guess his name (outdoors)
  • Call into Mrs Claus’s kitchen 
  • See the elves workshop
  • Visit Santa’s grotto where the big man himself will be making a special appearance – we hope he doesn’t get stuck coming down the chimney!
