Santa’s Grotto at Hillmount
Every Christmas Eve we invite you to bring your dog to visit Santa at Hillmount Belfast. This year we would appreciate if you could pre-book your tickets so we can keep everyone safe. Your ticket will include entry to the grotto for your dog and up to 3 guests. There will be loads of photo opportunities, the chance to meet Santa, and a special gift for your dog. If you would like a sneak peek at one of the gifts you will receive, please click here.
Please ensure your dog is well behaved and kept on a lead to ensure they get on Santa's nice list. Any misbehaving pups could be asked to leave the grotto. This event is exclusively for your dog however you can bring children alongside your furry friend with a maximum of three people per ticket. There won't be access to the Grotto if you book a ticket but don't bring a dog with you.
There will be the option to purchase professional photos on the day at an extra cost.
We can't wait to see you all the day before Christmas!
