Santa Experience at Croke Park!
Visit Santa’s Elf Training Camp at Croke Park
Our Santa Experience returns to Croke Park, Dublin this winter and tickets are now on sale for this unique family event at GAA Headquarters.
Santa and his elite team of elves from the North Pole are using GAA HQ as their base ahead of the busy Christmas season before starting preparations for the big ‘Final’ on Christmas Eve. Every helper at this Camp is a member of the North Pole GAA Club, which is the most Northerly and magical GAA club in the world.
Upon arrival at the GAA Museum, you’ll meet your Christmas Guide before you jingle on your merry way to the Elf Dressing Room where you can see the Elf stars tog out in their Christmas training gear. You will then sneak pitch side to the sound of cheering crowds for a Croke Park ‘Elfie’ opportunity.
You’ll also have time to ‘chill’ out in the GAA Igloo Clubhouse and you can test your own hurling, camogie and football skills in the North Pole Skills Zone. An All-Star Elf will even check your skills score card and will share some insider knowledge on which treats to leave out on Christmas eve for Santa and his reindeer.
Finally, all successful trainees will be rewarded with a visit to Santa, in his Grotto, where all children will receive an age-appropriate gift.
The Santa Experience also includes free admission to the GAA Museum.
A limited number of tours will run on Saturday November 23rd and Sunday November 24th for a special opening weekend.
The festivities get underway from Friday November 29th, and will run on select dates until Monday, December 23rd. Dates sell quickly and pre-booking online is essential to avoid disappointment. The experience lasts approximately one hour and tickets, priced at €10 for adults, €16 for children aged 2-12 years and €8 for toddlers aged 13-23 months, are available to purchase now. Children under 1 go free. The event is both wheelchair and buggy accessible, and there is free parking adjacent to the GAA Museum which is located in the Cusack Stand of the stadium.
