Santa Claus thought he was busy, until he discovered life on the farm!

Mr and Mrs Claus return to The Farmyard in Corofin, Clare, from Sunday December 1st next, for a magical Christmas Experience at the Quinn family farm again this year.

Children and adults will enjoy meeting Jack Frost, before warming up with carnival rides and fun in the play zone.  There’s a tractor and trailer ride to the Elf Workshop next for some art and crafts with the elves, including balloon modelling and face painting.

Visitors then drop into Mrs Claus’s cosy kitchen, where she has cookies for the kids and delicious mince pies and mulled wine for adults.


nMeeting the farm animals, warm indoors for winter, and feeding Santa’s special farmyard deer is magical for children.

And, to top off a very special Christmas Experience, the highlight of a visit to The Farmyard sees Santa Claus arriving down the chimney, with a present for all of the children.

There is private family time for each group with Santa Claus and a personalised message and gift.

Children’s bookings cost €29, with adult entrance at €15 for the fully interactive Christmas Experience which lasts over an hour and a half.   Families are also welcome to stay longer, enjoying The Farmyard playground and tea room facilities.

There is an optional €10 booking for children under the age of one, to include a present.

Opening on Sunday December 1st, the Farmyard will host family Santa Claus visits every weekend right up until Sunday December 22nd next, from around noon until 6.00pm each day.
