Santa Claus is Coming to Castle Oliver

We have very exciting news, Santa Claus has been in contact with us here at Castle Oliver and has requested that he and Mrs Claus visit and spend a few days before the busiest Christmas ever!  He suggested that Mrs Claus and himself stay at the castle over the weekends running up to Christmas. They have asked for a Christmas market and also for the gardens to be lit up in various colours, to remind them of The North Pole. Bring the family for an unforgettable family experience and embrace the giving spirit of Christmas, with proceeds going to the Hope Foundation projects in Kolkata (Calcutta) and the continuing preservation of the Castle.

  • Visit Santa during his stay at enchanting Castle Oliver, including gift. Photographer available on request.
  • Enjoy Christmas activities with Mrs Claus and her elves in the Castle, including a tour
  • Savour a seasonal glass of mulled wine or tea/coffee to warm you up
  • Browse through the Christmas market featuring a variety of gift, arts, crafts and food stalls.
    If you would like to have a stall at the market please Click here to email Charlotte


Due to adverse weather conditions the Christmas Market has been moved inside the Castle to the historic and atmospheric setting of the largest wine cellar in Ireland! If you are not visiting Santa you can still come along and visit the market and tour the Castle for just €10 per person.

If you are visiting Santa please come to the Castle on or slightly before your allocated time slot as you will not be able to enter the Castle prior to this.

Would any good boys and girls be interested in visiting Santa Claus while he stays at Castle Oliver ???
