Christmas with Santa at Clonard House

Cancellation Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd December

 

It is with a very heavy heart that we are writing to let you know that we are unable to host Christmas at Clonard on December 22nd and 23rd.

This is due to the worsening Covid situation as some of our staff, including the man himself, have become close contacts today and are now required to isolate. At this stage it is impossible to recruit and train new staff and so unfortunately we have to call it off.

We are really, really sorry. Over the last hour we have tried to be as creative as possible to see if there was any possible way we could host the event but unfortunately in the best health interest of everyone we need to cancel.

This evening and tomorrow morning we will refund you in full but it may take up to 5 working days for the money to reach your account.

Wishing you and your family a lovely happy and healthy Christmas and we hope 2022 will be an easier one for everyone.

Again we are really, really sorry. We wish you and yours a very happy and safe Christmas.

An interactive family experience in the beautiful grounds and courtyard around Clonard House, Mullingar.

Meet the elves

Pay a visit to the post office to get those all important letters stamped for special delivery to the North Pole.

Follow the enchanted trail to Santa’s beautiful house where you will ring the Christmas bells in the music room before a quick spot of Jingo Bingo with the Elves.

Photo in Santa's House

Your visit to Clonard House would not be complete without a visit to the man himself and have your Christmas chat and a photo if you’d like.

Meet Lofty the giving elf

After meeting Santa, Lofty will be waiting at the top of the slide with a gift for each of our special visitors and Mallow the chef elf will have a s’more for you ready while you enjoy some traditional Christmas games in the Courtyard.

Christmas Shop

You can enjoy hot chocolate and treats from the coffee trailer and browse in the lovely Christmas shop. 

Wrap up warmly – it’s Christmastime!

It was thoroughly enjoyable and the staff were absolutely fantastic. Santa and all the elves were friendly and excited and engaging and my children lapped it up. All of the elves we met on the way were great with the children and really made it exciting. Well done to all involved and thank you so much for adding a little magic to a difficult time for all.

Just brilliant

A fantastic evening in Clonard House. Such a lovely relaxed atmosphere, the staff were so lovely and Santa was the best ever and had so much time to chat to the children. Was no rushing along for any part of the experience. Thank you Clonard house for adding a bit of magic in such strange times
