For the ultimate Christmas experience visit Santa’s Grotto at Dublin Zoo, proudly sponsored by Deep RiverRock and then take a trip around the Zoo to meet the elephants, tigers, gorillas, red pandas and many more. Every weekend in December and every day from Thursday 20th – Monday 24th December, children will experience the magic of Christmas as they wander through the traditional and enchanting grotto and be greeted by Santa’s elves in the animated winter wonderland. Young visitors will also receive a gift and photo to keep as a special memento of their time with Santa.
The whole family can also enjoy a variety of festive fun including Christmas arts and crafts, face-painting and warm treats!
After sharing their list with Santa, children can then explore the wonder of Dublin Zoo and say hi to all the new arrivals this year including bull elephant Upali, Sita and Suri the Asian lionesses, red panda cubs, meerkat pups and many more.
No pre-booking necessary.
Tickets available to purchase on entry to Dublin Zoo at the ticket desks.
