Elf Town in Galway

Elf Town is back in the Ballybrit Racecourse in Galway again this year for another Christmas experience. Tickets available from €24.95 for adults and €39.95 for a child. Book your tickets here

Meet Mrs Claus in her kitchen and Santa in this grotto – where Santa gives each child a special Elf Town toy coin to exchange for their own present in Santa’s toy shop.

This year, they have had to reinvent Elf Town to allow for social distancing. But as always it promises to be a Christmas experience that’s sure to amaze!
