Prince William Meets Community Rescue Volunteers

Santa’s Grotto Experience presented by The Community Rescue Service

Join us to celebrate the magic of Christmas.

Santa has now arrived to Kilcranny House, Cranagh Road.

Upon arrival, you will be welcomed and checked in by our mischievous ELVES with a mug of hot chocolate or glass of mulled wine and shortbread.

After experiencing an exciting journey with lots of surprises along the way your party will be escorted into SANTA’S GROTTO where you meet Santa, the children will receive an early present and it is a great opportunity for a family photo!
