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
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
