Santa’s Grotto


Make your Christmas even more special this year by visiting Santa’s Foundry at Liffey Valley.

Your experience will begin in the enchanted garden where there will be games to interact with while you make your way to see Santa.

Then you will make your way into the Foundry. This is Santa’s workshop in the heart of Liffey Valley Shopping Centre.

In the Foundry, time slows down to allow the elves to achieve their task of building Christmas.

You will see how Santa’s presents are created, have some fun with some cheeky elves and meet Mrs. Claus.

As the magic sets in, you and your family will meet Santa Claus in his private room.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to have a magical moment with your family.
