We had a lovely time on our Christmas Party last year, so we’re doing it again! This time we’re heading to Gorey on the weekend of December 16th for two nights of festive fun, food, drink and of course a visit from Santa himself.
Arrive at your leisure on Friday December 16th, and we’ll meet for a casual meal in the bar to have a chat and get to know each other. Kids Club will be on this evening, with the exact schedule to be finalised but you can expect something like a movie night, kiddie disco or at the very least organised activities and games.
If you decide to arrive earlier in the afternoon on Friday, you have full use of the Leisure Centre so we’d suggest a dip in the pool to get everyone in the mood for a lovely weekend away.
There’s even more onsite to look forward to, with a junior outdoor climbing and play area, a wonderful children’s playroom with boardgames, Wii, Foosball, and much more to keep the children busy.
If you decide to head further afield you’re spoilt for choice with Courtown Harbour a short drive away, Ballymoney beach with it’s beautiful dunes,and Wells House & Gardens just waiting to be explored.
Also included in your package are discounted rates to local attractions, such as 10% off at Gorey Kids Zone, 10% off entry to Kia Ora Mini Farm, and a Great Cinema Offer with cinema ticket, large drink and popcorn for just €9.95 per person, so there’s plenty of things to choose from on the first day of our party weekend.
On Saturday morning enjoy a delicious freshly-cooked breakfast, and there are more Kids Club sessions so the parents can have some adults-only time, and a relaxing afternoon to prepare for the Christmas Party night!
We’ll begin with a Mulled Wine & Minced Pie reception on Saturday afternoon, with cookies and mi-wadi for the kids in a reserved area. Christmas Crackers with bad jokes and novelty gifts are a must, along with a visit from someone the children might recognise!
Santa will pop in to say hello to us, and of course will bring each of them a gift because it’s a party! After a few photos and secret discussions between himself and the kids about what’s expected from the Big Man on December 25th, it’s time for the children’s entertainment.
Expect excitement and fantastic fun in the form of a magician, face painting, balloon animals, and much, much more, with plenty of surprises for everyone. This will last for a couple of hours before it’s finally time for dinner!
The children will eat first, so they can then head to the onsite Kids Club, then the adults will have their slap-up meal in the restaurant together followed by entertainment in the bar. If we’re lucky Santa might even join us for dinner, but I can’t promise anything!
So while the parents are enjoying a fantastic meal and some great entertainment, the Kids Club are putting on their own show with a selection of activities, arts & crafts, storytelling, and ending the night with a movie to relax everyone after a day choc-full of excitement.
If you decide to extend your evening we can of course arrange babysitters, just ask! Often families will share a babysitter if their children have made firm friends, and you can split the cost making it very affordable.
