The Crypts Travelgram Westport House Winter Wonderland Review

On Saturday for The Crypts Travelgram I went along to review Westport Houses Winter Wonderland and what a magical experience it was. Firstly I have to mention it is very important that you book your time on their website to avoid disappointment because they are extremely busy .

So what can you expect from this wonderful festive experience. Well when you arrive at Westport House they have a fabulous Christmas Carnival with a massive big wheel for all the family to enjoy before entering the house.  With a variety of rides and games the children absolutely loved it. 

You will have a specific time for your tour in Winter Wonderland so when you present your tickets you are treated to a free juice for the children and tea coffee or mulled wine for the adults. You will be called when your tour time arrives and a truly holly jolly Christmas treat is in store.

While we were waiting for our time slot we visited the Christmas Wishing Tree where children can make a wish and hang it on the tree and for every wish hung Westport House are donating 1euro to the Mayo Roscommon Hospice which I think is a wonderful gesture.

At the start of the tour you enter a room with Mrs Clause. The atmosphere in this room is so warm and relaxed. Mrs Clause is sat beside a lovely open fire and all the kids sit on the floor on cushions in front of her. She tells them stories and sings songs with help from Squeaky the Elf. She was fantastic with the kids and they all had the chance to have their photo taken with her.

We moved on then to the next room where the children got to decorate gingerbread men, colour pictures and have their face painted. Once again they were assisted by elves who were great fun. 

Following on from here we went to the room with Santa Clause who was fast asleep so we all had to wake him up and the kids got such a kick out of this. He knew special secrets about each child and called their names off the nice list to bring them up for a present and again there was a photo op this time taken professionally and these pictures were available to purchase afterwards. Santa was brilliant and gave very good presents to the kids. It was all just so magical.

The final stop on the tour was my favourite, We all got to make our own Yule Logs, elves are there again to assist the children and not only are they great fun to make but they are also a fantastic keep sake from the day.

I have reviewed a few places on my website to visit this Christmas but I have to say Westport Houses Winter Wonderland was my favourite. It is extremely well organised and if this experience doesn’t get you in the festive spirit I don’t know what will……full marks here of 5/5 and don’t forget to pre-book your visit on their website
