Always be open to the magic of possibilities!

Sleigh bells are ringing at Killruddery to announce our 6th annual Visit Santa Claus experience. This winter, Mr and Mrs Claus await visitors in our House & Gardens - and the transformed Horse Yard - magically lit and decorated by the elves.

Christmas at Killruddery is all about celebrating the coming together of friends and family. Each week until Christmas, we light a new candle on the Advent wreath, symbols of hope, peace, joy and love.

At the heart of our winter wonderland is the time-honoured art of storytelling and musicial performance. Santa’s elves will be orchestrating music workshops - hand-making percussion instruments to sound through the twinkling, wintry Gardens in search of Santa Claus. 

This year, we want to experience the joy of giving rather than receiving. As elves serve warm milk and cookies, Mrs Claus will help all children compile and wrap a small gift for a loved one - and select one of our three charities to donate a 50c token: Their Lives MatterMary's Meals Barretstown

After meeting Santa, we have gift-away Nibbles for Christmas Eve preparations - including Killruddery’s own-recipe cookie dough, a carrot for Rudolph and seeds for planting next year!

Baby's First Christmas

When it comes to Christmas we are all children at heart and just because your baby is too young to really appreciate Christmas in all its glory, this does not mean that you and your family can not mark the occasion in a special way.

This year, for those of you with infants, we are offering a visit to Santa Claus where you will visit with the man himself in our beautifully decorated shoot room. Upon arrival our elf will be serving tea, coffee or mulled wine for adults along with a Killrudddery Mince pie!

We will have our professional photographer Mark Harrison to capture your family photo. The photo will be printed on the spot and you will receive an 8X6 strut mounted photo to take home with you on the day.
