Christmas at Birr Castle Demesne

Due to ongoing uncertainty with Covid-19, Santa will not be visiting Birr Castle Demesne this December, so our Magic of Christmas event will not go ahead.  Santa has assured us he will make his return to the demesne in 2022.  But don’t despair as there is still plenty of festive fun to be had.  This year we will run our Christmas Crackerjack Challenge throughout the festive season.  For more details on this fun family trail visit our What’s On page.
