Kildare Town's Christmas Experience

Visit Santa & Mrs. Claus at The Old Town Courthouse and much more!

What is the Experience...

The Reindeer Hospital aims to deliver an authentic experience of Santa & Mrs. Claus in a relaxed, comfortable and homely setting that emulates the warmth and friendliness of visiting a favourite Grandparent or Grand Aunt/Uncle.

The Story so Far...

Santa's Reindeer Hospital is one of Ireland's newest Christmas Experience started in 2017.

A mysterious virus has infected Santa’s Reindeer, caused by the harsh effects of climate change, Santa’s Lapland Reindeer are having difficulty in maintaining altitude when flying. This has been a huge cause of concern, Santa has sought the help from the best veterinary experts in the World and reached out to the Vets in Kildare because of their excellent reputation and experience with Racehorses. As a result he has opened a Reindeer hospital in Kildare Town to treat the sick reindeer. He is making a scheduled visit to Kildare Town from 30th Nov. - 22nd Dec. 2019, to check in on the reindeer and meet with vets to discuss the issue. Local vets are confident that they have found the source of the problem and are treating the animals in preparation for Christmas.
