"Good Value" Santa in Galway?

Hi all. Ourselves and some friends would like to bring our kiddies to see Santa on Sunday - somewhere in Galway. There will be 4 adults and 4 kids. We've had a look online at a few pet farms and a castle - and the prices seem fairly extortionate! One place was charging €27 per child!!!
Any suggestions of a nice Santa who charges around €10 per child - or does this exist??
All comments and ideas welcome!! Thank you.

Hi OP.
I don't know where you are travelling from but ailwee cave is great, it is pricey but worth it. It is only forty minutes from Galway.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Ailwee Caves a bit of a drive and fairly pricey (€33 per child!!!! ) so I had a look at the Xmas market in Eyre Sq and indeed it's just €8! (+ €6 for photo). Bargain in my eyes - think we'll be heading there.
Thanks again.

Well, in the end we went to the FREE santa in the Eyre Sq Centre and it was great. Unbelievably, there was hardly any queue and Santa was lovely and he gave my little man a sticker book and a load of stickers so he was delighted with himself. There is a collection for Cystic Fibrosis so we made a donation. Highly recommended !!
