Christmas Spirit at Slieve Aughty, Galway
2019 Christmas Festival Dates
Enchanted Family Christmas Day Out
Saturdays and Sundays December 1st-22nd,
Family Festival: 12-5pm
The Three Towers Organic Restaurant: 12pm-6pm
This year, catch the Christmas spirit in Galway with lots of fun and a focus on family and nature. The 2019 Christmas Festival is a great day out for families looking to take some time out and be reminded of what Christmas is all about. Santa will NOT be available this year.
Slieve Aughty Centre is known for a relaxing, non-commercial atmosphere. Take a break from the Christmas rush with family and friends and breathe the fresh air.
For the wee ones, pet Santa’s “pony” reindeer, or even better, take a pony ride, see what the fairy folk are up to for Christmas in the Enchanted Forest, visit the farm animals, browse the Christmas Shop, and enjoy the festive music. Children can make some crafts, get their faces painted, and ride the go karts or try stilt walking. The small playground and playhouse is fun for young children (all included in your entry cost!).
Homemade delicious organic food and drink will be available all day at The Three Tower Organic Kitchen, open 12pm to 6pm.
Now in its 14th year, The Christmas Festival is an authentic focus on family.
“Of all the Christmas events my children have been to, they will remember the festival at Slieve Aughty Centre over any other. The festival truly captures the spirit and magic of Christmas in a way that more commercial events cannot achieve.”

We proudly make every effort to avoid plastic and battery operated toys and gifts so common these days and instead seek to find unique crafts and presents that humans can interact with and enjoy creatively.
