    Hi All,

    The park is due to open any day now to the public and I’m thinking of taking ds and dd there to see Santa. Would love some feedback if anyone goes. The website looks good. Just google tayto park and it comes up. Its situated just outside Ashbourne.

    Had a look at their website, it looks good, but their prices are quite steep. Newbridge house in Donabate have the animals, a fantastic, huge playground and it’s very reasonable.

    It does seem very expensive all right. I was looking at the prices to visit santa and it €10 for under 3’s and €15 for everyone else – even adults! It must be some kind of Santa "experience" rather than the usual store santa.

    Newbridge is lovely, I agree, I wonder do they have a santa? Also, went to Farmleigh last year and it was great. Fireside story telling, christmas craft fair, carol singing by a fabulous choir inside the house and then a puppet show by lamberts in their cowshed theatre – if memory serves me right the puppet show was all you had to pay for. 🙂

    Crowne Plaza Dundalk has a Santa experience and it is included with the price of Sunday dinner at the hotel restaurant. That might be worth checking out?

    I love Newbridge too, fab place and so reasonable, you can spend the whole day there, its great!

    No Scole, I agree with you, like I said in my earlier post, Newbridge house and Ardgillan both have fantastic free playgrounds, its a bit steep for a Bison Farm with a few painted teepees in it by the looks of it.

    Scole i agree too… i thought it was just scabby old me, i looked at the site and said no feckin way would i be paying that price!!!
    Its cheaper to go to the Zoo and at that your supporting the upkeep of the animals…. the site isnt great either, doesnt show enough!!!
    I clicked on the animal video and it was two goats inside a wire fence… sure you can see that for FREE at newbridge house
    i wont be going, but dh eats tayto everyday for his lunch will look out for the offer on the multi packs…… the Santa price is the average for any of the places ie causey farm etc

    i know it’s mad i’d rather the zoo, more informative the discovery centre etc etc….and they have play areas…think it’s mad

    wonder do you get free food or a box of tayto on the way out….i’ve seen and experiencedbetter play farms in the uk and cheaper than tayto park….

    santa visit is dear…we’re going to belverdere house in mullingar…only 12e for the visit adults are free, and they have christmas markets etc etc…

    i dunno, they seems to be trying to rake it in….i think getting an offer on the crisips may be the only way…but if yu are going you are looking at 52e for 2 adults and 2 children just to go to the park….zoo a better optionby far

    Oh we went to Belvedere house last christmas, to see their Green Santa. The kids went through the Narnia wardrobe, planted a holly tree, and got wild seed shakers for a gift.

    The whole site is great, the lake and forest has playgrounds dotted here and there, although it was freezing and lashingthe day we went.

    I have to say though, we queued for ages to see santa, and were kind of rushed through in the end. Dispite booking tickets well in advance.

    i was waiting for this place to open as it’s close to where i work and handy on way to my mams etc BUT at the prices they are charging i’d much rather go to the zoo – don’t think i’ll be in hurry to go there
