Europe’s Largest Mobile Ferris Wheel Comes to Westport
Exciting times at Westport House as they prepare to open their Christmas experience, Winter Wonderland & Christmas Carnival, from Saturday 26th November through to 8th January.
Winter Wonderland features the new format of a guided experience this holiday season full of festive family fun. Families will enjoy Storytime with Mrs Claus, Gingerbread Man decorating, Face Painting, a personalised chat with Santa Claus himself followed by Yule Tide Log Making, free drinks for everyone and a ride around the grounds on the Westport Train. More details are available at http://www.westporthouse.ie/event/winter-wonderland/ and advanced booking is strongly advised for this popular event.
Brand new for 2016, the Christmas Carnival will feature the largest mobile ferris wheel in Europe – at 35 meters tall, it makes the stunning historic house look like a cottage! – and it will afford awesome views of the heritage town, Clew Bay, Croagh Patrick and the estate. The Carnival also includes a range of more “grounded” rides including chair-o-planes, bumper cars, formula one, hot air balloon and airplane rides. Visitors will also have the chance to win cuddly toys to take home. And there will be plenty of hot refreshments from warming drinks and traditional German ham sausages cooked on a free-swinging grill over an open fire.
