ELF TOWN GALWAY At The Claregalway Hotel

This festive season the magical Elf Town returns to Galway Racecourse. Located just 10 minutes from Ballybrit, stay with us at the family-friendly Claregalway Hotel. Elf Town 2020 runs from Friday 29th of November and every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, right up until Monday 23rd of December; including the full week prior to Christmas.

Mrs Clause will greet the little ones in her Kitchen where they will get to help her decorate delicious Christmas tree cookie while mum and dad unwind with festive mulled wine and mince pies. Each family will be invited to meet Santa and his Elves in groups in the cosy Grotto. Santa will spend about 20 minutes with each group, find out what each boy and girl would like to on Christmas morning and there will be an opportunity to have your family photo taken with him. Before you leave Santa will gift each child with a special Elf Town coin to bring home with them.

Experience festive cheer in a safe fun-filled environment where Santa and his Elves are truly looking forward to welcoming all the children back to Elf Town, for what promises to be another Christmas experience that’s sure to amaze!
