Come see Santa at Dublin’s first drive-in Christmas Grotto at the RDS, Simmonscourt! 

Santa’s Drive-In Grotto will be coming to RDS, Simmonscourt this Christmas from 26 November and we have a family pass to give away for one lucky reader. 

Tickets are on sale now priced from €39 plus fees, per vehicle and can be purchased here.

This year, Mr & Mrs Claus have been hard at work building a North Pole Outpost in the RDS, so their team of socially distant elves can carry out their important operations safely. For the first time ever, you will be granted backstage access to see Santa’s magical operations while getting to meet the man himself.

You’ll drive through Santa’s magical runway of blinking lights before you get to the elves' check-in booths. You’ll then set off on a winding road of wonder, taking in Winter Workshops, Santa’s Sorting Office, the Snow Blizzard Containment Centre and even see the Elves’ Christmas Control Centre and much, much more! Of course, Mr & Mrs Claus will be there to safely meet and greet you and your family! Then before you leave, pull up alongside Santa’s sleigh and receive a treat, but beware, kids, Santa knows if you’ve been naughty or nice!

In a year when working together is so important - Mr & Mrs Claus felt it necessary to show everyone the magic of Christmas, while following the guidelines and keeping everyone safe and sound in the comfort of their own vehicles.
