Santa is coming to Dublin Zoo this Christmas

The magical festive celebrations will be present during a trip to Ireland this Christmas, and the world renowned Dublin Zoo will be no different with Santa Claus himself due to visit between the 29th November and 24th December.

The Zoo, located in the Phoenix Park in Dublin City centre, will be transformed into an enchanting winter wonderland with its very own Grotto which will be a hive of activity with Santa’s elves hard at work in preparation for Christmas Day.

For families planning on celebrating their Christmas vacation in Ireland then why not enjoy a trip to Santa’ Grotto where a warm welcome awaits from the elves before it’s time to meet Santa Claus himself. Each child will have their picture taken with Santa and receive a special gift to take home too.
