Fa la la la la la la la, the countdown to Christmas in on! Get ready to deck the halls with boughs of holly, tinsel and glitter baubles but before you do all that it's time to book in a visit with the big man himself! If you want to know where to take the kids to visit Santa this year, I've compiled a list of the best Santa Experiences in Dublin. Don't delay, Santa is going to be very busy this year and everything is starting to book up already!

The Santa experiences are in no particular order. I'm not a magic fairy elf who's been to them all but the experiences below are the top ranked, come highly recommended and I would happily bring my family to any of them.
