What is involved in Magical Blarney?

Magical Blarney is a traditional, family centric, Santa experience, hosted in the beautiful setting of Blarney Woollen Mills, Blarney, Cork.

 The experience begins when you join us on the ground floor of the store where you will receive your Magical Blarney Wristband at the “North Pole check in” Keep these wristbands safe as they contain all the magical and personalised information that you provided at booking. 

From here, you will ascend to Magical Blarney via the “Elfator” where you will be greeted in the North Pole post office” and be checked off on Santa’s arrival list. 

On your journey through Magical Blarney you will meet many of Santa’s elves, through “Elf avenue” where our elves live on their days off and into “Elf Plaza” where you will make your wish for 2024 and hang your star on our tree for Santa to read. Join us then in Santa’s kitchen where you will meet more elves and learn the secret reindeer food recipe, you may even get some to take home!
 Next stop is the all important “Santa courtyard” where Judge Judy will greet you and check those wristbands! You will learn if you are on the naughty or nice list (Fingers crossed!)

Once you have made it through the naughty or nice test, you will go to meet the big red man himself, Santa Claus!Santa will use the information provided on booking to guide the conversation and create a memorable and personalised visit for your family.
At the end of the visit, our elf will have an age appropriate gift to give out to each child to finish the experience.

Whilst in the cabin, a professional photograph will be taken of the group as a wonderful keepsake. These will be printed, and will be available for collection just after your visit on the exit to Magical Blarney.
We are so looking forward to welcoming you all to Magical Blarney.
