    I don't have kids, but I know numerous families who have returned year after year to Bunratty. It's not just Santa, they decorate the whole village, so it's the whole experience you get. Not sure when the booking opens, but book early if you want decent time slots.

    Ailwee caves is supposed to be really magical. I nearly went one year but had to turn back due to floods :( lots of friends have been and highly recommend it. Book early as it is very popular.

    I just booked Bunratty for this Christmas on the advise of lots of friends - can't wait - big kid myself and I LOVE Christmas.

    I love my Santa to have a real beard, so haven't found the experience yet, though I've been to a few really good ones. It's worth noting though that you can go to Bunratty in the evenings and do everything but the Santa for something like €15 a family.

    Lullymore santa is brilliant also the head elf. There's no booking so queues can be hit n miss but if you go midweek it's usually pretty quick. We've been the last few years with our lot and will probably go again this year but reading about Bunratty makes me curious about a possible night away.

    Scratch that €132 :eek: Why are adults €14 :confused:

    Causey is 50e for us two parents and the toddler. I've heard some mixed things, is it worth that price point?

    Rathwood is a fraction further than I'd like to travel with him

    Lullymore looks great too but we'd definitely have to go midweek due to queues
