Came here Sunday morning booked in advance and thought it was brill! My niece fell in love with the Labrador lucky before we even got past reception the staff were all so friendly and Santy was brill! Great range of animals and the play areas available are wel worth the money! Definitely be back during the summer and next Christmas.

Dont go to this place. It's decorated with anything coloured red,not even xmas decorations. There were buntings up in the cow sheds/santa area that had pics of a bishop and a sheep on them.....and these were meant to be festive!!!. We had to queue for 45 mins to see santa and the visit lasted approx a minute(and that was with 3 kids). Each present from santa cost 8 euro and my son got a cooling fan as a present !!!!! The so called train ride is a joke. Certainly not the winter wonderland that was advertised.....Save your money and go somewhere else..

Took kids to Red Mountain farm on Sunday to see Santa. It was very relaxed with plenty of room for the kids to run around. It was very well laid out in sections for kids to enjoy before they went in to see Santa .... the little Massey Ferguson was a big hit also.It reminded me of my youth at home on the farm as a boy. Now living in Dublin I was delighted to be able to show my kids all the animals in the shead across from where Santa was based.While the kids were enjoying all this including a ride on the blue barrell train we were able to enjoy a warm coffee and scone inside.... a perfect way for both parents and kids to enjoy a couple of hours at a reasonable cost.

Just visited santa at red mountain this weekend gone and what a dissapointment it was. Had bought a family ticket valued at 25 for €10 on groupon. However when i got there had to pay € per child for santa and €2.50 each for the so called train. The barns were decorated poorly, the large indoor sandpits were €30 smyths sandpits, the half cups of luke warm hot chocolate were €2 a cup, the santa presents were cheap poundshop gifts....there was no atmosphere and we left within 40mins after spending more time driving from dublin then actually there.Overall the day was a complete let down and by no means would i recommend to anyone.
