Santa at the Castle


Santa at the Castle

Johnstown Castle

12th & 13th and 19th & 20th December


Johnstown Castle comes alive with festive cheer over the weekends of 12th – 13th and 19th – 20th December with something for all the family to enjoy. ‘Santa at the Castle’ is a must for the little ones and offers a rare opportunity for visitors to see inside Johnstown Castle and soak up the festive atmosphere in grand surroundings.

Entrance to ‘Santa at the Castle’ is by timed ticket and so advance booking is essential. Visitors will start the experience with a short trip to the castle from the Irish Agricultural Museum in their choice of either a vintage car and a stretch limo. Once inside, adults will be able to enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie while the children write a letter to Santa (helped by Frosty the Snowman if they want). Everyone will then go and visit Santa in his beautifully decorated room with magnificent sleigh where the children will post their letter and choose a gift from Santa. There will be lots of photo opportunities – so visitors are reminded to bring a camera! It promises to be a unique and memorable experience for all.

To book a ticket please phone 086 442 9225 or email

The event costs €7.50 for adults and €15 for children.


Irish Agricultural Museum and Johnstown Castle Gardens is less than an hour's drive from Waterford City and just an hour and 20 minutes from Kilkenny City.
