Xmas Family Fun in Headfort Arms Hotel & Tayto Park

Xmas Family Fun in Headfort Arms Hotel & Tayto Park

This Christmas in Meath, Tayto Park will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland for Santa’s grotto. Here the children can come and explore Santa’s wonderland!! Each child will meet Santa and the elves in our magical grotto and receive an age appropriate gift.

This wonderful Winter Wonderland can be experienced whilst staying in the nearest hotel to Tayto Park, our very own Headfort Arms Hotel located in teh heart of the historic town of Kells, Co. Meath.

It may seem early, but it’s about this time of year that Santa Claus starts making his list (later on he’ll be checking it twice), so it’s time to start keeping an eye on that behaviour!! A little bit of the North Pole will be coming to Tayto Park, and Santa is hoping to see all of you there in plenty of time to tell him what you would like for Christmas.

With a little sprinkling of Christmas magic, Santa will be transforming The Rafter Room upstairs at the Lodge into the most enchanting grotto ever seen outside of Lapland! You really won’t believe your eyes when you walk inside! Huge toy soldiers and Santa’s own elves lead the way into the grotto; lollipops taller than you, chocolate snowman, polar bears and giant gingerbread men magically transform the Rafter Room into a real life land of Candy Canes. Waiting for you at the end of it, with a twinkle in his eye and a very special present for every boy and girl is Santa Claus himself. Don’t forget to tell him how good you’ve been! And he’s bringing his elves too who will be helping him with his gifts for all the boys and girls!
