Santa Claus has been taking up his annual residence at Aillwee Cave in Ballyvaughan especially to meet children and their families since The Millennium. He works very hard as he prepares this unique event. Along with Mrs Claus and his team of happy Elves, Santa ensures a very special personalised visit for each child.  On Thurday December 6th, Santa will attempt to slow down the pace around the workshop. This way children with sensory challenges and autism can join in the fun and festivities. We hope to create a safe and happy environment to enjoy with their friends and families. Admission: Adults €17, Children €34, Babies €7
