Christmas Magic at Waterford Castle

Christmas Magic at Waterford Castle

For this week's edition of Waterford Castle's Blog we are a delighted to announce a very special event taking place on the Island , 'Christmas Magic at Waterford Castle'. This fun filled family event is being held in association with the WLRFM Lion's Club Christmas appeal. Taking place on Sunday 15th December, from 1pm-6pm, the Island and Castle will transform into a festive wonderland. So today, we are going to take a sneak-peek at some of the festive treats we have in store.

Your magical experience begins with a majestic ferry journey to the Island. When you have arrived at the Castle, why not take a train-ride around the resort and make sure you keep an eye out for Santa’s reindeer!  The front of the Castle’s will be transformed into a winter wonderland; with a snow machine and beautiful ornate carousel enhancing the magical Christmas experience. The special Christmas market will showcase a number of artisan stalls, making it the perfect location to find the unique Christmas present for that special someone. When you are enjoying the array of outdoor activity, why not treat yourself to Christmas beverage and an indulgent snack form the Waterford Castle's food stall. When you need to escape the chill, there will be a number of stalls in the Castle.


Santa will be in the Castle on the day in his workshop where he will have a special present for all his little visitors; well, all those on his nice list! Just in case you think Santa will forget what you want for Christmas, there will be an area to write a letter to him; which can be posted in the special Christmas Post-box.  Mrs Clause will also be here and she will be reading Christmas stories in front of the roaring fire. You will also see Santa's elves, who will be very busy getting all the presents ready for the big day! Additionally, there will be a magician, balloon modelling and stilt walkers which provide extra wonder and magic to the day.

There will be a number of cookery and decorations demonstrations for those who wish to get tips to create Christmas magic in their own homes. Discover the adventures of a pirate's world at the special Captain Jack show, taking place between 3.30pm -5.30pm, which will be fun for all the family. The day will conclude with a magical firework display which will truly fill everyone with Christmas wonder and cheer.

With much more surprises in store on the day, Christmas Magic at Waterford Castle promises to be a fun-filled family event not to be missed.
