Santa Claus is still coming to town!
With Dublin’s first brand new socially distant drive-thru Christmas attraction, Santa’s Drive-In Grotto!

Safe & magical experience

This year, Mr & Mrs Claus have been hard at work building a North Pole Outpost in the RDS, so their team of elf’s can carry out their important operations safely and socially distant. For the first time ever, you will be granted backstage access to see Santa’s Magical Operations while getting to meet the man himself

Book Tickets

Explore the road of wonder

Drive through Santa’s magical runway of blinking lights before you get to the elves check-in booths where you set off on a winding road of wonder including Winter Workshops , Santa’s Sorting Office, the Snow Blizzard Containment Centre and even see the Elf’s Christmas Control Centre and much, much more!

And of course, Mr & Mrs Clause will be there to safely meet and greet you and your family! Then before you leave, pull up alongside Santa’s sleigh, grab a treat, but make sure to be on your best behaviour as santa knows.


Christmas Grotto Drive-in Style

In a year when working together is so important - Mr & Mrs Claus felt it necessary to show everyone the magic of Christmas, while following the guidelines and keeping everyone safe and sound, in the comfort of their own vehicles!

We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our land of wonder.
