Each child will then meet Santa himself where they will be enthralled by stories and chat. You can be sure that he will pass the beard pulling test as he is, of course the real deal as verified by our younger visitors from previous years.  Every child will receive a gift from Santa before they leave.

    The Farm by Lough Gur

    22.00 20.00
    The Farm by Lough Gur was first published in London in 1937 and quickly reprinted. It was well received in England and a best-seller in Dublin. Set in rural Ireland in the 19th-century, this is the true story of a family that lived on a farm by Lough Gur in County Limerick, a world in itself. The master with his men, the mistress with her maids, all worked in happy unity. The four little girls, growing up in this contented atmosphere, dreamed of saints and fairies. Their real and their dream world fused into an idyllic background for growing, learning and loving.
