Enjoy a Magical Experience this Christmas at Hotel Westport & Westport House


Winter Wonderland at Westport House is a Magical Christmas experience brimming with festive cheer that will leave the kids starry-eyed and the whole family believing in fairy-tales.  And 2021 is no different!

Staying in Hotel Westport means that you'll be at the heart of this festive event, in the only hotel on the Westport House Estate. 

Even though this is our 11th year in a row running Winter Wonderland, we are still just as excited about it as a child on Christmas morning!  And as always, you can expect a  magical atmosphere, festive fun and awe-inspiring decorations.  In 2020, we operated Winter Wonderland safely across our big house and extensive grounds and it worked out beautifully.  So much so that we have turned this into a new Christmas tradition and we plan to run it very similarly in 2021.  This means that we will continue to offer private, individual family visits with Santa (as opposed to group visits like previous years) giving extra special one-on-one time with the main man himself in his Grotto in our outdoor Tinsel Town. 

What’s new this year? We are bringing back face painting and the opportunity to make your own decoration to take home.   Speaking of decorations, Westport House will be beautifully decorated and you’re invited to visit to see the giant Christmas tree, take a festive photo, meet Mrs Claus and enjoy a complimentary drink. And don’t forget to hop on board Winter Wonderland Express Train for a spin around the estate.
