Christmas on Castle Island - Santa's Island Discovery

Castle Island, Enniskillen, Fermanagh


We've teamed up with our friends at Erne Water Taxi for this amazing premium Santa Experience. Set Sail on the all electric Island Discovery around Santa's Island from Enniskillen Castle Jetty taking in the Christmas lights as Mrs Claus tells you enchanting Christmas stories and travel to Santa's magical Island Workshop where you will be greeted by your personal Elf or Nutcracker guide. Begin by visiting Mrs Claus' kitchen where you can enjoy the home baked goodies and your choice of Hot Chocolate, Mulled Wine or Pressed Apple Cider that the elves have been hard at work getting ready. Then help the elves keep the shelves stocked by decorating some cookies and making your own unique Christmas card. Journey through the elves' workshop and listen closely to see if you can hear them at work and take a short visit to the reindeer stables before they come inside for the night. Visit the North Pole Island Shop where you can get your hands on more of Mrs Claus' sweet treats or grab some Christmas presents from Blue Green Yonder, local artisan crafters or The Island Fox kayaks, paddle boards & clothing. Finish up your Island adventure with a visit to Santa Claus in his Grotto before heading back to the boat with some amazed little faces. Your experience will last approx 2 hours. Important Notes: Family Ticket (Admits up to a maximum of 6. This can be any mix of adults & children. Perfect if Granny or Grandad want to come along.)
