The Travel Expert



  • We have been to many Santa’s over the years but by far the best one is in Arnotts. We have been about 5 times now and he is the real deal. He is so attentive and good with the kids, he has a really nice chat with them and when you leave even the adults believe in Santa again. It’s free/no present but we tell our kids because he is “ the real Santa” he doesn’t give presents as He will be delivering their presents on Xmas eve. Wait times can be long but you go off and shop/have lunch and gone back, I highly recommend this Santa experience

  • I cannot recommend Arigna Mines Christmas experience enough. We went there last year and it was so magical from beginning to end. Greeted at the door by the elves to Mrs Clause making you hot chocolate with marshmallows it is fantastically organized and ran. You are brought down the lovely lit decorated mines to meet Santa in his grotto, it really is heart warming. There is magic shows, puppet shows and Carol singing to entertain the whole family. Such value for money. We were massively impressed.
