Its not everyday that you arrive at a farm decorated with thousands of twinkling lights, meet Santa & his
deer Dancer & Prancer or see a crib with a live cow & donkey, except of course when you visit Ireland’s Lapland at Glendeer Pet Farm. Glendeer Farm, which is just outside Athlone off the M6 (Tuam/Monksland Exit 13, follow Drum signs) has all facilities undercover. There are Christmas themed cabins with scenes like
The Night Before Christmas’, an animated snow scene, Santa’s Workshop & a real ‘Winter Wonderland’ where the kids can run around as the snowflakes fall down around them. A variety of animals await your
arrival also, including our cheeky monkeys George & Gina.
Ireland’s Lapland has something for everyone, young & old alike. The children get their little bag of food to feed the animals as they make their way over to see Santa, have a chat with him & receive a gift, & adults can treat themselves to fresh coffee/cappucino & homemade snacks in the warm surroundings of the cosy coffee shop.
There is plenty to entertain the kids with the new INDOOR Skywalk play area with lots of slides & bridges so Glendeer is perfect even on those wet or snowy days, just remember to wrap up warm!
Don’t forget to bring along a camera so you can take plenty of memorable pictures of your lapland experience. This year Santa arrives by sleigh on Sat 30th Nov & will be at the farm every evening until the 23rd Dec. Special rates for groups of 20 & over, catered for by appointment during the day.
Opening times for Ireland’s Lapland : Mon to Fri 4pm – 7pm, Sat & Sun 3pm – 7pm
There is no need to pre-book tickets, they can be purchased on arrival. It is a queuing sytem for Santa, but it moves quite quickly & children can feed the animals while they wait. No one will be turned away!

Double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee (2007 & 2011) Andrew Maxwell is back in Ireland this Spring with a brand new show.
Packed full of fearlessly intelligent topical observations, delivered in his animated and inclusive style, ‘Banana Kingdom’ recently completed a sell-out run in one of the Edinburgh Fringe's biggest venues (playing to over 10,000 people) and a hit run in London's Soho Theatre.
With this blissfully funny show, Andrew will cover most of Ireland, taking in twenty seven venues across the country, kicking off on February 14th 2014. Full list of tour dates below.
“One of the most significant comedians working in the country today.”
Andrew has sold out every Edinburgh run since 2005, playing to over 70,000 comedy fans in that festival alone. A familiar face on our TV screens, you've seen him star on The Panel (RTE) One Night Stand (Dave), Monumental , Conspiracy Roadtrip and Live at the Apollo (BBC), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), John Bishop's Only Joking (Sky) and Celebrity Juice (ITV2).
