Santa's House 2016

Santa’s House 2016 is not going ahead this year .

Santa's House 2016 will not go ahead this year. I am very sorry to inform the Santa's House Customers that it has been decided not to go ahead with our Santa. It has been almost ten years now running and with a young family it really takes up too much time. I am very sad about it as i have always loved doing the event and it has meant alot to me and to meet all the great children that visited Santa. I hope all of you although i know several will be very disappointed will have very happy memories of Santa's House and who knows he may be back again ! Liz von Engelbrechten

Welcome from Liz von Engelbrechten

I have always loved Christmas time . I think it is a truly magical time for children . I remember being terrified of going to see Santa as a child and I never believed the man in the red suit was the real thing. That's why I want every child that comes to my Santa at Ballycross to have a really believable experience.

Make this year a Special Christmas with a visit to Santa’s House at Ballycross Apple Farm.

After filling out Santa’s "secret online form", you will be sent a special invite to your family home with your children’s names and time of their visit from Santa’s Master Elf. You will receive this invite approximately a week before your visit.
