Welcome to Santa’s Grotto: Santa’s Medieval Chambers, as Santa returns to the beautiful and atmospheric undercrofts for Christmas 2019!

Winterval 2019 sees Santa returning to his Medieval Chambers beneath City Hall, The Mall, Waterford in the heart of Waterford's Viking Triangle.

Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves will be welcoming their visitors to the enchanting 750 year old Choristers Hall and undercrofts located at Waterford’s Medieval Museum. See the elves hard at work, getting their orders ready in time for Christmas, have a chat with Mrs. Claus as she tells her all time favourite Christmas stories and of course make sure that the man himself has gotten your wish list! There will be lots of fun to be had and games to play and of course loads of opportunities to snap the perfect selfies!

You’ll receive a Santa photo (6” x 8”) and a surprise gift, when you visit Santa in this stunning, historic venue, nestled away underneath Ireland's oldest city. Enter Santa's Medieval Chambers via City Hall directly opposite the House of Waterford Crystal for an incredible, unique experience this Christmas.
