Not one, but two magical Christmas experiences in Kilkenny have been named among the top places to visit Santa this year!

The Mykidstime website, which helps parents by providing a wealth of great ideas for activities, events and fun-filled days out, has chosen two of Kilkenny's most popular festive experiences to highlight in it's '50 Magical Places to visit Santa in Ireland' list, just released.

According to Mykidstime "the Castlecomer Discovery Park in Kilkenny is definitely one for the ‘nice’ list this year. It is a treat for the entire family, and the ultimate way to kick start Christmas."

They also recommend we "experience the magic of Christmas with Nore Valley Park at their bespoke venue within the McDonagh Junction Shopping Centre in Kilkenny."

It may only be November but the best Santa experiences sell out quickly and now that these spots have been highlighted on a national website they're sure to be more popular than ever!
