Visit Santa at Dublin’s GPO


Santa Experience coming to GPO Witness History from 1st December

Santa and his Elves are on site at Dublin’s GPO as they begin construction work on a magical Santa experience at GPO Witness History Visitor Centre. The construction team made up of Santa’s most talented Elves from the North Pole were spotted with giant candy canes, sleigh bells, tinsel and fairy lights on O’Connell St.  They’ll be working around the clock to ensure that the children of Ireland can visit Santa from 1st December at the GPO.

This Christmas, for the first time ever, Santa will reveal how the children of Ireland’s letters make their way from post boxes around the country to the North Pole. Visitors to the unique Santa Experience at the GPO will meet the Christmas Postman and Santa’s Elves who help make Christmas happen, before visiting Santa in his secret grotto in the GPO Courtyard where each child will receive a special gift.

1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 and 23 December 2018

Kids and big kids alike will also have the chance to learn the secrets of the ClausOptic cable. This top-secret device which has only ever been seen by Santa, his Elves and postmen, ensures that every single letter makes it to Santa in time for the big day.

Commenting on the construction work Alice, Head Elf and Forewoman said: “I have been involved in many construction projects with Santa over the years, so I have a huge amount of experience in creating the magic of Christmas. I recently helped complete a major refurbishment of Santa’s Workshop in the North Pole which was my most ambitious job to date, but when Santa came to me with this project, I knew I had to put my best team of Elves on the job. He asked me to create something extra special for the children of Ireland, so I knew immediately that GPO Witness History was the perfect place to bring the joy of Christmas to Ireland. I can safely say this is going to be our most magical build to date.”

GPO Witness History Visitor Centre is wheelchair accessible and buggy friendly.  Everyone is welcome!
